TYLER, TEXAS (KETK) — A new powerful bullet hit the firearms market Tuesday. In fact it has impressed the firearms community so much one vendor sold out in five minutes. It's ammo many people want to get their hands on for self-defense.
The ammo is G2R R.I.P 9MM 96 grain hollow point ammo, which has eight shards and has three angles that taper to a point.
"It expands like nobody's business, it's an awesome round," said Robert Quates, Firearms Instructor at Lock & Load Shooting Range in Tyler.
The ammo is designed by Georgia based G2 Research. The distributor is "AmmoZone" in Flippin, Arkansas which is currently selling the bullet in store- only. Pacheco can't ship the product from AmmoZone, but it's sold through their online vendors.
Folks at Lock & Load tells us that's the ammo they'd like to see on their shelves. "Anything that's better for the end user to protect themselves why wouldn't you want that," said Quates.
Pacheco says, it's different than any other ammo because it's solid copper rod and has the ability to penetrate through sheet rock, plywood, sheet metal or glass.
"Once it hits it breaks up and transfers all this energy into your target, which is a plus because you need all that energy to hit your target, gives you a lot of trauma," said Quates.
The 20 round box is retailing around $45-55, and bids are be placed for more than $200. Pacheco says, in the next four to six months the rip will be available for 40 and 45 calibers.
We're told it's the last round you'll ever need.
