.223 Rem., DRT, TerminalShock FMHP (Full Metal Hollow Point), 79 Grain, 2730 fps, 20 Round Box.

Years of research and testing by Dynamic Research Technology (DRT) in conjunction with elite agencies world wide have created the deadliest ammunition available. This is the only ammunition used to safeguard officials and has earned the name "Dead Right There". The uniqueness of this copper-jacketed ammunition is in the compressed powder core which is as fine as talcum powder, as the bullet is fired it is spinning at such a high speed, when it reaches any part of the "target" and comes into contact with the organic tissue the hydrostatic shock of the soft material going into the hollow point actually makes the entire core projectile expand creating a fatal wound. The bullet will not pass through the "target" making it perfect for home defense or close quarter combat. Hit any part of the body to stop it dead in its tracks.

Ammunition is non-returnable. Please contact DRT directly for quality issues or concerns. (660) 564-2537

Frequently asked questions:

1. Is it safe to eat the meat of animals shot with DRT ammo?

Yes. The bullet does not open until it reaches liquid under hydraulic pressure or something small enough to get into the meplat of the bullet and blast the jacket off of the core. Example: a whitetail deer is standing quartering to the hunter. Putting the .223 79 grain or .308 175 grain, bullet into the point of the shoulder will have the same effect. The bullet doesn’t open until it is through the shoulder bone and into the body cavity. It will then continue to expand for 11-12”. At that time, the opposite side of the rib cage will be bruised. The area around the entry wound is bruised just like any lead bullet would do. That meat is ruined because of the bruising only. The internal organs contain 99% of the metal powder core. The hunter can cut around the damaged meat. If the powder core happened to get into the meat, it is easily identified and resembles shot from a shotgun shell.
2. How does it work?

The bullet has a copper jacket, just like any other lead core bullet. The difference is the core. The core is made from compressing 2-3 metals into a small cylindrical core. This core is placed in the jacket and has a cap placed on top of it to contain the core when the bullet is formed. The outside of the bullet will look just like a normal bullet.

The bullet opens after 1.5” of penetration. The bullet will continue to open for a funnel like pattern until it stops at 11-12” of penetration. Currently, all of our bullets are meant to penetrate the same depth. The different calibers and bullet weights will cause a different diameter of wound cavity due to several different factors. One is velocity and another is twist rate of the barrel. For instance, a .223 Remington round in our 79 grain bullet will typically cause a 4-5” wound cavity in 10% ballistic gelatin. The bullets will not ricochet on steel, but will penetrate bone and mild steel such as car doors.
3. Will it penetrate barriers (body armor, bulletproof jackets, auto glass, clothing, and bone)?

The bullet will go through anything that is not as hard as it is. The bullet proof jacket will contain the bullet. Auto glass is no match for our .308 175 grain bullet, which will not deflect as it goes through the glass and hits its target. Clothing is one of our most frequent questions. The handgun rounds will go right through any clothing and continue on just like they were designed. It takes the liquid matter under hydraulic pressure to make the bullet open. Water is not a good test because it is not as dense as human or animal tissue and temperature can have an effect. Bone is no match for our bullets either.
4. Is it accurate at long range?

All of our rounds are made to be accurate at long ranges. The rounds are made using only the most stringent manufacturing processes. All of our rifle rounds are weighed and inspected after loading to ensure that they are properly loaded. The bullets are inspected by hand as well. To get quality ammunition, you have to have hand loading standards.
5. Will it hurt the handgun or rifle that I am using?

No. Every bullet that is made in our facility is copper jacketed, just like 99% of all ammunition. The ammunition is all made to SAAMI specs using components from the most well known manufacturers.
6. What twist rates are recommended for the calibers that are available?

.223 – 79 Grain bullet – 1:7-1:9

.308 – 175 Grain bullet - 1:9-1:11

Handgun Rounds are short barreled and short range, so the twist rate for it to stabilize the bullet is not as crucial. If the twist rate was radical compared to the average twist rate, it could make a difference.
7. What advantage is there to using frangible, penetrating ammunition?

No pass through, bigger energy dump, and bigger wound cavities.

No Pass Through- the bullet is coming apart and only penetrates to 12”. If the target has an exit wound, it is not the bullet, just pieces of the core. If the core passes through, it would be like getting hit with a snowball if you were on the backside of the target.

Bigger Energy Dump – by not exiting the target, the round expends all of its energy inside of the target, thus hitting the target full force.

Bigger Wound Cavities – Typical wounds from our rounds are at least 2.5” in diameter. If it is a 9mm 85 grain round, that is a .355” bullet. So the bullet expands to roughly 7 times the original diameter. A normal bullet will expand to at most 2 times the original size. Bigger wounds, faster expiration date.

5.0 Rating accurate and deadly... the new NATO round? - 10/15/2008
Reviewer: c0untrysh00ter
The review is true, (despite the horrid grammar) DRT rounds are as effective as claimed. I tried a box at various distances and these are accurate up to 300 yards, (as far as I was shooting) and these things completely destroyed a cantaloupe.

5.0 Rating WOW - 11/26/2008
Reviewer: Chrissy
I have purchased these bullets and reloaded with LC brass and my own powder. Flawless operation, great recycling, no problems. I used it in my M4. No complaints.

5.0 Rating accuracy verified - 2/9/2009
Reviewer: gooseman80
Compared this ammo along with Black Hill's MK262 over the weekend out of a LWRC M6A2 14.5". Gropings were about the same at 100 and 200 yrds. On a previous test, the MK262 out preformed the Hornady NATO Tap which had about the same groupings as the LC 62 grain ammo. This is good accurate stuff and still cheaper then MK262 if you can find it.

5.0 Rating works good - 7/16/2009
Reviewer: non-operator
I shot a few of these with a buddy of mine into some water-filled gallon jugs. The results were fairly spectacular: The jugs would virtually explode -- sometimes coming off the ground. Inspection would find a typical .223 entry with a shredded plastic hole of about 2-inch diameter exit, and bits of copper jacket inside the remains of the jug. Hey, it's not fruit and I don't get to shoot at people much, but it looks like DRT works as advertised -- at least in this caliber.

4.0 Rating DRT is AOK. But... - 7/19/2009
Reviewer: VNvet72
If you need explosive terminal ballistics at closer range, it will work. But when I want to reach out a little further it was not meeting up to the 77-SMK in my rifle.
