Lengthy history on this bullet, but I've always wanted to test it. So Velocity, Gel, Armor :)

I had ordered a box a long time ago and they said it was virgin brass but it was once fired brass as the casing was obviously showing signs it it. The copper seemed a bit softer because the tip would bent really easy. I was not impressed at all. Definitely a knock off but I would like to see some testing. They could have tweaked the load since then but eh.

Another great test. Very impressive performance from the P90 especially - desire to SBR intensifies.
