What is the hive mind on this system? Anyone use it? Cost? At 650fps it is going to leave a mark!!!

I've used it for military training. I missed out on the shoot house though. I hear that it hurts pretty good

Not for normal civilian purchase.

It will leave a mark!

While ambushing students armed with Simunition pistols, I took three hits through thin clothing (areas not covered by protective gear). It left marks the size of silver dollars, and abraded the skin fully over that circular area.


I left far more marks than I received!

I am pretty sure it is LEO and .gov only.

650fps is the legal cut off for a firearm.

They are for mil and LEO training and you have to go through a training program to get certified as an instructor to buy the ammo. I looked into it a while back as I wanted to do some simunition training as I was going to work at a department that would allow me to carry a carbine. Ended up finishing my school instead and decided to go federal. I have heard the 9mm AR uppers are more reliable than the 5.56 which was originally intended for military use in SAWs.

It hurts a little more than paintball. And yes I have done both. (But it was a pistol round not 5.56)
