    Default Fort Scott tumbling defense ammo

    While picking up a new pistol this weekend, Sig 1911 TACOPS, I was going to buy a boy of my go to, Hornady Critical Defense.

    The gun shop asked me to check out the Fort Scott defense ammo. They had a ballistic gel block with a Hornady and Fort Scott 9mm rounds in it and a tablet with youtube videos.

    The bullet is solid copper and after penetration it begins to tumble. Penetration was deeper than the HP but the wound cavity was aw inspiring.

    Anybody else shoot this or looked into it??

    This stuff looks interesting. One concern is both "other" bullets hit the spot they were aiming through. When they shot the Scott ammo it was low. Why?

    gel video reviews do show occasional over penetration.. however.. I doubt with all the tumbling, once it exits a human torso, it would be of any danger.
    My best guess is it wouldn't even go through a thick shirt or jacket as almost all energy has been transmitting to the body it just rampaged through

    As far as hitting low, I have not experienced that.. but was it truly low or did the shooter shoot low????? I know where he wanted to hit but was that truly an issue with the ammo

    If anybody wants to bring a block of gel to the July PAFOA shoot we can test it out :-)

    Probably because it is light and fast.

    Its doubtful I'll make it to the July shoot, but if you do get into testing why not try comparative tests of the Fort Scott stuff and Lehigh Defense? And of course post the results here.
