Pure copper bullets?

From what I remember of when the high velocity ammo came out years back, it was aluminum bullets.

oops. Not these... From their website. "Lead free, copper monolithic, nickel plated projectiles."

I'll stick with my 230gr HydroShoks. wink

Is that the stuff that's supposed to defeat soft body armor?

Yep, A friend of mine shot some out of a pc carbine at 1/4 ar 500 plate at 80 yards and punched right through it.

Maybe I am a moron, but how can a solid copper bullet have the right diameter and sufficient seating depth and weigh less than half of a smaller sized lead bullet (185 gr) or a third of a well-accepted standard (230 gr)? IF I remember my science courses correctly, copper is only 20-25% less dense than lead.

Regards,

Kris

Interesting theory espoused on the NovX site.

Quote
At the heart of NovX ammunition is the exclusive, cutting-edge SST Stainless Steel/NAS3 shell casing. Stainless is stronger than brass, delivers more energy to achieve unmatched velocity and power, and is vastly superior across all levels of performance. Instead of energy lost when brass expands and contracts upon firing, the stainless steel case of NovX ammunition generates energy gains through limited expansion, allowing more energy to be directed at driving the projectile forward at previously unattainable velocities


Now, first, the stainless case must expand enough to seal the chamber, no? Or am I missing something.

Second, could the "previously unattainable velocities" be achieved through much much higher pressures? And how much higher?

I've seen mention of the cases in the gun literature, but I don't recall seeing the pressure levels mentioned.

I wonder, especially with that .223 round in an AR, will upgraded buffers or recoil springs be necessary? Will use void a mfg warranty?

In the case of NovX yes, a composite of polymer and copper I think they say.

I can't speak for the Liberty ones in the OP
