Before It’s News – by N. Morgan
Besides having a good gun, you have to have effective ammo. The G2 Research Radically Invasive Projectile (R.I.P), is one of those ammos I would classify as the perfect ammo. This ammo is the ultimate in personal/home defense and is worth a look.
Here’s the details:
G2 Research R.I.P. 9mm
* 16″ Penetration
* Up to 6″ diameter spread
* 96 gr projectile
* 2″ grouping at 25 yrds
* 1265 FPS / 490 Muzzle Energy
* 9 Separate Wound Channels
* Precision Machined
* Solid Copper / Lead Free
* Defeats all known barriers such as sheet metal, sheet rock, windshields, plywood, heavy winter clothing
It started with an un-compromised idea of creating the ultimate personal protection round. The geometry at the tip of the projectile has much to do with the way the projectile travels through tissue. It has been long known in the medical industry that a trocar point penetrates the dermis layer more efficiently… the G2R RIP Round

This could be a good round. I am curious if the round can cause mis-feeds in a semi-auto because of the shape of the bullet. Also, if we can get them, we better get them quick. As soon as this becomes public there will be a push to stop the sale to anyone except cops and government. I would get some quick!
Jams? Most, definitely depending on the gun.
“Defeats all known barriers such as sheet metal, sheet rock, windshields, plywood, heavy winter clothing”… So will a .22LR.
Better hope you aren’t shooting this stuff at the police state which will be wearing aramid; while you, probably not. It is a neat little gimmick; but on par with green tipped, Zombie killers. If you don’t have steel core, then you better have mass.
yes, you’re right Mr. Adams. Their list of “all known barriers” is pretty pathetic, and I think I’d rather have the mass, too.
I wonder what the true ballistics of these are? also weight VS FPS, and energy transfer on intended target, just because fragments go thru sheet metal and sheet rock doesn’t mean $h^t, so do most projectiles fired out of hand guns at close range.
Also fragments might not mean death to intended target, just a ripped up wound, good for non lethal hits, but who wants non lethal hits?
I would want to play with a box or two before I would say this stuff is good or not, and yeah, how many unreliable feeds will this ammo produce? No thanks!
I was thinking of the damage shotgun slugs of that design might be capable of.
I checked into a box of 9mm. They are only able to produce 66,000/month. I don’t even know where to find it other than through their website. I would like buy a couple boxes to test it for myself. I agree with you about the shotgun slugs.
A shame they’re not in production yet.
There is a similar slug, the hexolit, which does awesome damage on wild pigs, deer, etc. If this is as good it will take a large chunk out of an unarmored target.
I’m sure our treasonous government already has them on back-order for Obama and his DHS Civilian Defense/UN force. So they’ll get them probably before We the people get them. That’s usually how it works in the Fascist States of America.
