You do not have to use the special rounds, but there is a risk of splashback from some conventional rounds.

Breaching rounds can also be made using buckshot and dental plaster.

When we did it we used 00 and slugs. We just angled ourselves at 45 deg from the door and blasted the knobs right off. The first time I saw it I thought we were goning to put some private in surgery. It worked fine, and eventually I got in on the action. No need for special rounds.
If I knew how I would post training vids of us doing it...

Splash back is the term we used too..
military affiliation?

I bought some of these at a gun show years ago. They were made by Fiochi, had red hulls with a paper card end cap, and were stamped "Demolition". They are not supposed to come back and hit you in the important parts.

They were also selling rubber buckshot rounds stamped "Law Enforcement". Looked like maybe #4 buck or so. They were HELL on the feral cats that used to hang around all night and tease my kenneled up hunting dogs. Lots of fur but no blood so I am claiming that no animals were injured in this experiment.

I have some of these but I haven't tried any yet, I need to find an old door to set up and test them on.

from the ozarkmtns web site

The DOOR BREACHER is extremely destructive and lethal when fired at living tissue.


Home defense round anyone?

No. My only overseas time was in Kuwait and Iraq. I know a few guys out of Tallahassee that made the rotation to Djibouti last year.

I was in on a raid a few years back where an officer [putting on nomex for the cop-bashers] shot a 90lb PitBull at about 3 feet away with a powdered copper breaching slug. The slug hit upper center chest (the dog was almost on top of him), penetrated about an inch, then just about detonated into about 400 pieces. Dog went DRT, never moved a muscle after it hit the ground. I saw the X-ray later, and the dog's chest cavity looked like a clear night's sky. Optimal anti-personnel round? No. Still deadly? Hell yes.

There was an article in SWAT a couple of years ago about the terminal ballistics on breaching slugs.

They came to the conclusion that a breaching slug inside of a few yards they work as well as any slug.
