Looks to be a decent round.  Not nuclear, but something more manageable for CCW.

no nuclear explosion? I thought this was 10mm?

I think non-nookular loads are better for personal defense. I would only use true full power 10mm for hunting or large animal defense.

The 9mm SIG V-Crown had similar performance. Nice, healthy, but not ridiculous velocity, penetration a little on the deep side, but not excessive. Some jacket separation that doesn't lead to weight loss. So far, I'd say that SIG's new line looks like a legitimate alternative. I'd still prefer Gold Dot or HST, but these look adequate. I've read that the projectiles are made by Sierra.

My camera only does 1,000 frames per second. I'd need a Phantom or something to capture an event that fast.

Thanks, that was pretty cool!

I imagine you'd have jacket separation at a higher velocity with a little longer barrel.

If you ever get in the mood to give ammo away again the arfcom test brigade is in dire need of M855A1

Well, I'm not so sure. 40mm is pretty legit too. 25mm and 30mm even MOAR badass.

I think you're right. Looks like they nailed the edge of the velocity envelope for this bullet pretty well.

I really want to see what M855A1 can do against AR500 level III armor.

Is it even available?

I know Liberty (or some other company) has a really similar bullet.

You've never been targeted by 57mm I see.

Seems slow for 10mm.  .40 and .45 can keep up with that.

Not that I know of, but Haji shot some sort of rockets at me that were probably measured in millimeters.

You can get 1,200 fps out of a 180 gr .40 S&W or .45 ACP?

Always fun to hang a 120mm lume for several minutes while another gun crew figures out how the fuse works.
