Late last night (3/7/06) I saw part of the show where a special bullet would go through a steel plate and leave a small hole but when shot through a chunk of meat it expanded and blew the meat apart.
Anyone see this - have any links for more info about that bullet?

Hello ArmyCop, I am watching it right now,3/10/06. I taped it because it was running the same night as my Haganah class.Really cool info, I like the concept of the smart bullet. The whole thing is making my trigger finger itchy.

95, There are two different smart bullet types they talked about, neither are available to us civilian types. One is manufactured by Le Mas . It uses a blended smart metal type of technology that will enable the bullet, pistol or rifle, to totally penetrate plate metal armor.The neat trick is this same bullet, when recognizing that it is now in flesh will fragment with such a force that it "explodes."Thus there is no more over penetration . The other was Army experiment . It comes in two flavors,5.56 and 20mm They are computer programmed , Thru a firing control system in the weapon itself, to travel a certian distance and air burst over the target. They are trying to perfect these two to travel around corners. It was impressive on video. It is a shame that Le Mas caters this round to LEO & Military sales. It would be the perfect CCW round , and it comes in my current favorite , 10mm.

I think its all an ancient chinese secret, or maybe VooDoo.Its the govt. if they told ud they'ed have to kill us. LOL. The "rifle" they were shooting thes things out of were cumbersome looking things . They were basiclly a guided missle launcher that was shrunk.There is a microscopic chip in the base of the"bullet" and the computer feeds the range info into the bullet @ firing. When it reached its pre-determined coordinites it air bursts above the soft targets and shreds them up,and intresting enough they will penetrate obstrutions to get where they need to go. Whitetail season just would'nt be the same with this though.LOL.

for home use that stuff is suppose to shoot through a car door or level II but yet go all over the place when it hits soft tissue. Up here in Mi the gun shops will not sell it to and individual unless they are CPL or LEO. There are a lot of nice ammo choices out there but the stuff the MIL has leaves any thing we have in the dust.

That performance sounds a lot like what CorBon DPX actually has done in tests on clothed gelatin and barriers.

Supposedly the RBCD round is blended metal technology and they sell to the public. http://www.rbcd.net There are lots of conflicting stories about this company and it's product. My good buddy who IIRC has made 06 (Full Colonel) in Special Forces swears by them. I have them in my spare mags for my 40. I can't find them at a gun show for my 45. I did find this one box of 20rds for just about $20. Normally they sell 20rds for $50!

Old Dawg: The specs are spectacular, but there seems to be conflicting data out there. I'm also reminded of the old saying about if it seems to good to be true..... My buddy, as I said, swears by them and he's a real BTDT kind of guy. Warrior. I still keep them in the backup mag to my Glock M27. It's a really LIGHT bullet. It's that blended metal technology that seems to be at work here.
