Interesting uses

I open my mailbox to find this today.

Purple-cased, and "Open-tip," printed right on the box, and it's "for training use only."

In the real world, we'd call this stuff "hollow point," but that's a nasty term that hurts some people's feelings, so I suppose this is some sort of Orwellian Newspeak, or some other rot.

This should run through your AR pretty well, however. (wink-wink, nudge-nudge, but that's not any sort of endorsement.)

As Pete at WRSA is want to say, time is short.

"Open tip" is often like a 69-grain Sierra Match-King or a "Palma." A bullet with a nearly microscopic opening, constructed such that if you spin it too hard it comes-apart in-flight. Can't put too much powder behind it or it won't even reach the target, so it may likely be less effective on walking-around targets too...
