Unfortunately they are difficult to get hold of!

I think that this may be the most promising of the current crop of PDW rounds. The fact that you can switch between 9x19 and 6.5x25 CBJ just by changing barrels is a big plus point. So is the armour-piercing performance of the standard tungsten-cored discarding sabot round. There has to be some question about soft-target effectiveness, though. TANSTAAFL.
