45 acp delayed shot?


#1

Any info on the 45acp “delayed shot” round.I saw one and it looked like a metal sabot with a 4 way split .


#2

The .45 ACP projectile consist of 4 segments made of aluminium.
the hollow room of the bullet hold 8 pellets No B.
On the bottom of the projectile the 4 segments are bounded with a nylon line (like fishing-line).
Bullet weights about 173 grains
TL of the cartridge = about 1.29"

Have a nice day,

Richard

Hallo cobb,

I am not sure what the real intentions were of this expiriment. It is most likely that they wanted a projectile with large and multipel wound effects.
