    Extreme Shock Ammo

    Read an article today in G&A about Extreme Shock ammo. Don't really understand the principal behind it, but maybe someone could explain and give + or - of this ammo. Thank you

    From reports, it is over rated and expensive. Try an internet search for Box o truth , I think old painless did a test on em.

    Penetration tests that I saw last year showed the extreme shock ammo was actually worse than "mainstream" ammo. Save your money and buy some good stuff!

    Here's the link for the review rocky was talking about. This is a good site. Kinda like the MythBusters of firearms.

    What the heck is nitrilium anyway? Alien technology--they've been here again haven't they? I'd stay away from anything that's not listed in the periodic table myself.

    I too read this article and remember Old Painless's test. It made me remember to take any word from the author in G&A with a big grain of salt.

    My dad was given a box of the stuff and I told him to go plink with it.

    Isn't that the stuff advertised as anti-terrorist ammo? Overpriced garbage of you ask me.

    I'll ask again. Guess who pays the salary of those gun rag writers? (hint) It isnt the folks that buy the mags.
