I have read several articles about the blended metal 'wonder bullet' made by RBCD in San Antonio, Tx. The 5.56mm APLP round that they manufacture and was used in Iraq by the ex-SEAL that supposedly 'blew the guy up' like exploding ammunition is what I'm curious about. Has anyone fired it or seen any testing results in gelatin? I'm skeptical and wanted some feed back on this round before I go any further.

Not well thought of around here. Lotsa marketing hype. It may not be bad, but few believe the claims the company makes. You might want to use search function to get some insight. Also, check out TacticalForums.com

I was skeptical when I read their website and was ready to call BS. When the Military tested it and said that it was nothing special in a 2002 report, RBCD has some excuse as to why it didn't do well. Thanks for the info on it.

According to Quietshootr, I'm guessing that I am somehow on the tail end of an ongoing bitch session or something.

Please, please, please use the search function. This is a thread that comes up at least every other week, and generates lots of useless drivel.

There are 3-4 threads which will show up if you search for "rbcd" or "lemas"

But don't take my word for it - these Ninja guys must know:

Alright, never mind.........I am now going to slink off into the darkness again. Being a noob I didn't realize just how big of a scab I had just ripped off and I will go and find a gauze bandage to cover the wound with. My pennance for this thread will be a sacrifice to the ammo-oracle god of your choosing.

I'll take a case of XM193. Send me an IM when it arrives and don't forget to grovel appropriately....

ETA: I'm not so much of a god; think of me as more of a minor deity.

You mean that ninja guy? After all it is the same person. Just make shure you buy the boxed XM193 or you may get pretzels in you rounds!

Same guy, the "Skin tone" was altered poorly with a computer. I guess the could be identicle triplets.

Well Zhukov, since you only classify yourself as a minor deity and not a full blown ammo-oracle god, the best that I can do is pass on my XM193PD 'cull' ammo. Let me know where to send it and any extra snack food is a free bonus.
