    Anyone heard/tried "Extreme Shock" Ammo?

    While surfing the web, I found this web page showing this ammo called "Extreme Shock." Have any of you out there tried this stuff? Just curious. The web page is: http://www.concealedcarryoutfitters....Ammunition.htm

    The air freedom rounds (the ones with the orange plastic tips) while advertised to appear like conventional hollow points, are actually more like Corbon Powrball ammo. However, because of the price per round, this is not the type of ammo I would be taking to the range. As for the fang face rounds, over penetration is something to take into consideration before using this ammo.

  4. I just read about this round in a magazine and thought it sounded like a great home defense round. It is, per the article, not supposed to go thru an airliner seat or fuselage. No having to worry about little Suzie next door when you catch Jo Jo Crackhead (Scott I love that name) in your house.

    Quote from magazine:

    "The AFR bullet creates the largest, most wicked wound cavity I have ever seen in any type of test medium from a handgun bullet. The wound is shallow but no other handgun bullet can compare to the sheer volume of tissue damage these bullets are capable of."

    A russian bear taken down with a single 9mm!?!?
    Wow, I once put four 9mm FMJ's through a whitetail buck, and he ran away like nothing happened.
    Those Extreme Shocks look brutal.

  6. Can anyone tell me what NyTrillium is? Am I understand, it just a fancy word for lead. I think Extreme Shock is just preying on those that are easily impressed by flashy pictures.

    I personally would wait to hear some real world results not provided by Extreme Shock.

    They did a pretty good review. Looks just too expensive for me to be messing around with.

    It doesn't look significantly different from regular personal defense rounds, and I can't imagine that saw-toothed thing can be trusted to feed reliably. That looks like it would mostly appeal to people who like hocus-pocus crap. Maybe Benny Hinn would buy that ammo. Thanks anyway, but I'll stick to Glasers, Hydras, DPX, etc.

  10. After reading the review, I'm not going to waste my money on it. The claims don't seem to match reality.

    I agree, I have been carring Cor-Bon DPX. Good ammo at half the price.
