I noticed they didn't put any covering over the ballistic block, like someone who would be wearing heavy winter clothing. Flechette and fragmatation rounds have been around for ages. None have ever lasted past the trendy period.
I saw this on our local Fox News. They sounded worse than MSNBC building it up to be very lethal. I doubt it will last long on the open market because of how bad it is. It was designed to KILL!! What ammo for self defense isn't? Let's see how far it will go. Larry
I don't believe this will be available to the military, due to restrictions on ammunition through the Geneva Conventions. Nor will it be available to civilians, because of its ability to penetrate some ballistic vests in use by police.
I'm quite sure it will be outlawed for civilian use by governments, and only be available for use by the highly trained individuals on police forces, against the ever more rambunctious and evil civilians roaming free in the streets.
