    Cool, any chance they are going to look at making a hunting round?

    I like the idea of lead free hunting rounds for meat. It will be interesting to see how they develop.

    You know about barnes-x bullets right? We've been using them to drop animals with authority for years, no lead in those.

    So it has a spin rate of 109,000rpm... What's the twist in a typical 9mm barrel? Imma do some head cheese calculatios and see what I see.

    So in a standard 9mm P226 we have a twist rate of 1:10" and the listed muzzle V is 1425 fps if I rad that right. (12/10) x 1425 = 1710 Rotations Per Second.

    RPM = 1710 x 60 = 102,600RPM at the muzzle...

    So do the little vanes carved in the front of the bullet impart additional spin on the round?

    Also, what kind of composition is the round made up of? Is the round sintered? What kind of long term effects will the composition have on the barrel?

    -S.
