ExtremeShock™ Ammo and the Box O' Truth

I don't know how many on this board are familiar with the Box O' Truth, but Old Painless does quite a bit of experimenting on ammo, here is a test of some of the highly marketed ExtremeShock™ handgun ammo, it's worth a look. There are lots of other tests that he had done that you should find interesting as well.

Very interesting test. It does look like it would have been fun to watch as it happened. While it shows that the rounds do as they say in regards to not over-penetrating and "exploding" apart to disperse the energy, it would be interesting to know if they will indeed penetrate enough if the need arrose to use them in a self-defense situation.

That seems to be the thing for a lot of those cartridges that are incredibly over hyped, I'll stick with the major brands myself!
