Anyone tried it? Any range reports? Promo video on the website shows 10 inches of penetration with full expansion after going through 4 inches of down. Fairly impressive for a small caliber.

It sounds impressive but I've never seen any other ammo tested exactly that way.

I carry it in my Kel Tec P3AT. I'm not convinced that it's any better than any other high quality personal defense ammunition, though.

I carry it in my Browning BDA 380. I haven't ran hundreds of rounds through it or anything. But I put a magazine or so through. No misfires, no problems. I did dig one bullet out of a hunk of firewood that I shot into (not exactly ballistics medium). The expansion was interesting, but thats a pretty hard object, so.... I even found the plastic part of the tip. I hope to shoot some into jugs of water at some point when it gets a bit warmer.
