If you’re a regular reader, you may remember our 2013 Readers Choice Awards. The honor for best new ammunition went to Lehigh Defense for their .45 Colt Maximum Expansion round. As ShootingTheBull410 demonstrated, that’s one devastating handgun round. G2 Research seems to have been inspired by that design for their new nastily named .300 Ripout round, a 200 grain bullet that peels back on contact creating a wound channel that should have pigs positively panic-stricken. But there’s worse news for Porky yet; G2’s sending some of this stuff to Nick for testing. Mmmm. Bacon . . .
Winder, GA, December 18, 2014-G2 Research announces a devastating new subsonic .300 AAC Blackout-caliber round for hunting or tactical use. The new G2 Research .300 Ripout Round produces a massive wound channel that ensures hunters of an accurate, sure and swift kill.
This new subsonic (suppressor-friendly), premium-grade, 200-grain .30 caliber round quickly expands at reduced velocities, creating a devastating, energy-depositing wound channel of one inch or more. Bullet weight retention is an astounding 98 to 100 percent, which creates more than 17 inches of soft tissue penetration.
Free from the massively overdone hydrostatic shock prevalent in so many of today’s ultra-high-velocity loads, the sub-sonic G2 Research .300 Ripout Round will kill ’em quick and quietly without turning good game meat into useless jelly. Needless to say, this round is excellent for tactical use too.
G2 Research national sales manager Chris Nix says “if the idea is to put the animal down efficiently, quickly and humanely without over-penetration and vaporizing good eating meat, our .300 Blackout Ripout Round, with its unique three copper petal controlled expanding bullet, gets that job done.”
Individually manufactured in highly specialized CNC machines, each expensive-to-make bullet is precision machined to open up within the first two to three inches of impact, resulting in a controlled expansion of three large copper petals called tridents that make up the first half of the bullet. (A .30 caliber bullet, for example, will expand between 1 and 1.5 inches while the bullet shank remains attached for controlled penetration even at subsonic velocity.)Specifications:
