I Love the Smell of Snake Oil in the Morning

Lehigh Defense's "Xtreme Defense Ammunition", machined from bar stock. They claim a permanent wound cavity 100% larger than other ammo.

Right. Since good .45 bullets will expand to .75",* it's a pretty bold claim that a solid, non-expanding slug will do better.

The "permanent wound cavity" stuff may look nice in a video, but when the bad guys are composed of ballistics gelatin, get back to me. Until then, I will hold with the opinion that handgun bullets work by cutting blood vessels and/or smashing bone and nerves. A bullet that expands is going to do better at that than a bullet that doesn't.

Thank you. I haven't kept up on this stuff for many years. I take it kindly that you have. As a .45 owner it is nice to know those Remingtons I liked still rated highly.
