Advanced Ballistic Concepts is a Colorado-based business that has introduced the Multiple Impact Bullet. It piqued my interest and I took a moment to talk to Todd Kuchman about their product.
I'm not going to lie, these rounds are not cheap. They're more expensive than the standard defensive round, but with a 14" spread from a .45 caliber round, that's a whole lotta center mass. Unlike standard defensive rounds, these fragments are tethered together. As the "bullet" leaves the barrel, it fragments into four pieces tethered together, so you end up with four points of impact: the middle slug travels down the center sight line, and the three tethered fragment spread to 14". One shot, four points of impact.
It's a round I'm excited to try.
