I am completely ignorant on this subject I have never seen Breeching Frangible Shotgun slugs much less shot any. I have just been reviewing Polyshok shotgun ammo and came across this breeching ammo that has some of the same characteristics. If I am reading this correctly it is saying is that this ammo explodes on impact disintegrating into fine metal dust. So the question is what does it do if it is shot into soft tissue? Does it explode inside the targets body, the fine metal particles causing the temporary wound cavity to be permanent? Does anyone have any experience with any of this anyone know the result of it being used as anti personal ammo instead of door breeching Is there any significant penetration before it explodes disintegrates? If there is it sounds like wickedly effect HD ammo. Anyone know?
From Ammunition To Go
From Federal Premium Law EnforcementThis is 12 Gauge Door Breaching Ammo. This ammo is manufactured by A.L.S. Technologies, the leading producer of tactical 12 Gauge Ammo. This ammo contains a 325gr. compressed copper hollow cavity slug. When this slug is fired into a solid object the compressed copper explodes, causing extensive damage to the object. It is used to blow hinges and locks off of wood and steel doors. The slug turns back to a copper powder after it explodes into the target to minimize the danger of injuring someone on the other side of the door. This is military and law enforcement grade door breaching rounds. They are 2 3/4" rounds.
The new Tactical® Door Breach from Federal Premium® Law Enforcement allows quick entry and minimizes collateral damage. This load uses a frangible slug in a 2-3/4" 12 gauge configuration to defeat doors effectively. The powdered steel-based product breaks up on impact, meaning a slug or other projectile doesn't penetrate the door. This limits the possibility of collateral damage on the other side.
