    Hi. There's a really good picture of one of 'em that has been cut open to show the construction here. Really just a thick jacket. I suspect they were more marketing to PD's than actually tested.

    If you have any, don't shoot it. The stuff is worth a fortune. $7 each. Apparently there some on Gunbroker last summer at $15 each.

    The name does more damage then the round does in real life. Winchester made these for years in .38 spl as well as .357 Magnum. The .38spl was so strong they...BOUNCED of car bumpers. Barely made it through the trunk lid. Not any better then military ball ammo. I never had a chance to try the .357 Magnum but based on the .38 spl I doubt there would be a big difference. A good Federal or Remington .357 magnum with 125 gr. HP works much better all the way around.
