New Rounds I bought

I bought these new rounds, they are called Galser Sliver Safety Slug. They were first created for Federal Air Marshals. I got them for my Wife's gun since she keeps it in the house.
Check them out and let me know what you think...
Also, has anyone else used these before or know anything about them?

New Rounds

Sytasyn_syn, I don't know anything about these rounds, but ran across this thread last night when looking for some ballistic and effectiveness reviews.

http://www.e-gun.net/forumThread.asp?threadID=1000934

Take the info for what its worth, but the guy says that these are unreliable in an auto feeder. If your wife's gun is a revolver, then they may be ok, but you might check out the thread.

First, what caliber are they? I understand the reason they were developed was to stop over penetration and/or ricochet, but if you hit your target center mass, with lets say a 9mm, there are plenty of lower powered JHP's where you won't have to worry about OP or ricochet. Just don't carry +P, or +P+. Other Frangible ammo like Mag Safe follows the safe philosophy, but are they really needed or even effective?

I've shot silver slugs, blue slugs and mag safe before, but didn't do any testing with penetration or expansion/fragmentation of the jacket. Just checking proper function. I've always worried about under performance with products like those, especially with thick layered clothing or light barriers. Will they reach vital organs? The gel tests with Mag Safe look decent, but I sure don't have any real life experience with them.

There were supposedly some tests done on goats using frangible ammo in France called the Strausburg tests... but its probably B.S. You can research it.
here is one link, but there is a lot more out there...

DRT (Dead Right There)

This is some great ammo. Might want to try it out and see what you think. I ordered three boxes of the 124 grain 9 mm so I can try it out on some Mellon's and such.

CORBON Ammunition of Sturgis, SD is pleased to announce the establishment of a strategic alliance with Dynamic Research Technologies (DRT), headquartered in Grant City, MO.

CORBON, known for producing high-quality, performance-enhanced ammunition, is now offering the revolutionary, lead- free, accurate, long-range, frangible DRT round. The DRT bullet has been used by Special Government Agencies for over ten years, and now it will be available in the most popular CORBON law enforcement, self-defense, and hunting loads.

“Our decision to align with DRT was based on the growing need for lead-free ammunition and the remarkable performance of the DRT bullet” said Peter Pi, Sr., President of CORBON Ammunition. “The current trend across the United States is to pass legislation banning leaded ammunition. We’re staying ahead of that curve by offering the ultimate lead-free round.”

DRT™ lead-free centerfire ammunition is designed to out-perform all other ammunition and it is environmentally friendly!

It seems you've studied many tests and performed a lot of your own... What do you think of Safety Slugs and Mag Safe?

Glaser Safety ammo

I was with Calgary Police, Canada, back in 1979, when we were issued this ammo as our duty ammo, fired in a .38 special, S&W Model 10 bull barrel. Back then they were a great round and would create a devastating wound 4-6 inches. We carried these for a few years, but after the founder died, the quality went down and they switched to a different duty ammo. It's been a lot of years and they are still around so I would expect its still a great round for self defense. Little fear of over penetration or going through walls.

yeah, they are back to being a premium ammo again. They also are selling a line of DRT, I think they licensed it or out right bought the design, not sure...
