LeMas will not sell blended metal bullets to anyone except police departments or military. Sorry. However, I believe they will begin to market a non-armor piercing hunting variant in the near future through RBCD.

Currently they sell Blended Metal Technology ammo in .50 BMG in a soft point format. It's called BMTSP.

If somebody did find a Unicorn, there are people on this board who would post, What Calibre, What Twist Rate, What Barrel Length and What Sight is best to shoot Unicorns… and get 100 different reasons why to use an M1 or a FAL

I got box of RBCD 223 from a dealer here in NY .

After making the MISTAKE of asking about it here

I didn't shoot any rump roasts with it , but I did shoot some gallon water jugs .
It did fragment almost completely in water . It also made a clean hole through a couple
of sheets of 3/4" plywood and then broke up in the water jugs .

Would I go out of my way to buy it again ...... No

It's more of a novelty like Tracer ammo .

I was thinking for defense, don't plan on spedning $40 a box just to screw around with it

It was $40 a box anyway.

Now tell me, do you really think that asshat at Le Mas wants people to see what his ammo can do?


Who was your friend that the air force had jurisdiction over him? Under what law did they tell him he couldn't have this stuff?

I understood that this stuff had been pretty completely debunked anyway. Hasn't it?

The is getting deep here...

1) 'Blended Metal' has been debunked...

2) A 'hunting bullet' should not be designed to fragment, period.... Do you want to be picking bits of 'Blended Metal' out of your deer sausage?

Hunting ammo should be hollow-point, ballistic tip, or soft-point and designed specifically so it does not fragment 'Bonded' or similar...

Truth be told Blended metal was a waste of time. even if it did work, why? because using such bullets goes against Hague convention. If we started using it so would the enemy. If we really wanted to we could use soft-point, but we don't. They won't sell to civies so that market is out. Finally Police, they could use it but it's expensive and I don't know if it has any advantages over HP ammo. I don't think it could penetrate kevlar armor any better than HP or FMJ.

A powdered tungsten/copper combo in a 224 format blows the hell out of soft stuff. But it does not penetrate hard shit for shit. I have been trying to reproduce his work for over a year now. And I have found no way to get it to do both. I can do one or the other very well.
A 40gr compressed copper fill in a copper jacket, at 4000 fps in a 223 rem. Into ballistic gelitan. WOW!
