probably hornady TAP or something, I use off-brand JHPs since they only have to go 60 feet.
>>
>>28930355
This is the only correct answer
>>
m193 fmj is adequate for killing people
>>
>>28930350
For close range, XM193 works just fine. If you don't trust it for whatever reason, then Mk 262/its clones work perfectly fine too.

Just don't get varmint rounds- you'll blow a bunch of little craters, not pierce holes.

I like the idea that if I hit the perp in a limb (a probable outcome) I'll probably blow the limb clean off instead of making a hole through it.

If the perp is DOA at the hospital, no lawsuit, so catastrophic injury is best injury.
>>

>I like the idea that if I hit the perp in a limb (a probable outcome) I'll probably blow the limb clean off instead of making a hole through it.

5.56 is not going to make this ever happen without egregious volume of fire.
>>
>>28930761
Just shoot the burgler in the heart when he's down.
>>
>>28930823
I don't think execution-style wounds are going to look good if it goes to court, anon. Better that he bleeds out on scene from massive, but relatively poorly placed tissue trauma.

Nobody is going to believe I had the presence of mind to make a heart shot while legitimately fearing for my life.
>>
>>28930805
Have you seen 5.56 wounds? Like just from standard FMJ? Take that energy and dump it all into a couple inches of tissue (the standard thickness of a human arm) and depending where it hits it damn well could take a limb off, or at least render it a tissue flap.
>>
>>28930841
This.
HP .223 is a beast.

MK262 exit2.jpg

Mk. 262. Here is a live tissue exit wound of one.
>>
>>28930914
Mk. 262 is utterly wasted at home defense range, unless you are defending your home from like 400 yards with a carbine.

It's a round designed to extend effective range, not be more effective point-blank. Inside 20 feet you might as well use XM193, literally everything you shoot will be devastating.
>>
>>28930858
Shit, cannot unsee.
>>
>>28930945
My property is 18,000 acres. I honestly need a .338 AR to cover every angle.
>>
>>28930945
This is true. The *best* choice for defensive ammunition would be something that performs well against common barriers, minimized over-penetration, and maximizes expansion. There are some great rounds out there that do this, but Mk. 262 isn't one of them.
>>
>>28930963
>performs well against common barriers
>minimizes over-penetration
Ballistics dictates that you can't have both. I'll sacrifice barrier penetration for less overpenetration and greater expansion, personally. Give me polymer tips.
>>
>>28930956
So you're going to literally murder someone from 800 yards out because they were "on your land?" If I was on that jury I'd fucking send you to jail without remorse. You're a fucking monster.
>>
>>28931013
I don't think you understand.

That man has 18,000 acres. No one will find the body.

Also, meth heads and cults tend to squat a lot and cause a ruckus. No one will miss a meth head or a devil worshiper.
>>
Has anyone made their own rounds? Using, say.....magnesium, titanium, and some type of gel.
>>
>>28931009
really depends. If I'm in my house, yea, I'd go for that since I most likely also have the police on the line as well if something were to go horribly wrong.

If I were out in the woods or some shit that isn't in a wide open space, I'd probably opt for something a bit more barrier penetrating.
>>
>>28930956
just install mines, problem solved.
>>
>>28931022
>Meth heads and devil worshippers
Maybe. But he wouldn't even be able to tell at that distance. For all he knows he's blowing away some down-on-his-luck stranded hiker that went the wrong direction or something. Not identifying your target before pulling the trigger is fucking gross willful negligence, plain and simple. A kill at 200 yards could maybe be defended with a good enough scope. Outside that, naw. I'm not even talking about legal issues now, just plain old ethics. Sure he could get away with it, but he'd still be a murderous cunt.

Whats the difference between steel and brass cartridges?

It is more coyotes(the human type) and drug smugglers coming through my property.
>>
>>28931046
If you're having a firefight in the woods, it's probably not a "defensive" shooting at that point, which takes it beyond the scope of this thread.

I mean, yeah, I would choose Mk. 262 or equivalent if I was in literal open-field combat for some reason.
>>
>>28930534
Just found this stuff. Any opinions on it?
>>
>>28930534
thanks anon, just bought 240 rnds.
>>
>>28931064
steel is better quality than brass
>>
>>28931111
Quads confirms for truth

Kill the bad guys with Wolf
>>
>>28931064
the steel cartridge fires the whole thing, giving it extra power, while the brass cartridges ejects the case.
>>
>>28931111
shit bait
>>
>>28931133
hahahahahahahahahaha
>>
>>28931085
What's this ammo all about? Like, what is the point of a "bonded bullet" in .223? What is it supposed to be good at?
>>
>>28931155
It has more time to get to know you, so it does a better job to try to impress you
>>
>>28931009
You can find a decent compromise between the two.

Monolithic-copper hollowpoints (the non-tipped ones like the original TSX or Tac-X) don't really deflect, have decent barrier penetration, and are still devastating in tissue. They've got the same expansion diameter as the tipped versions (TTSX, Tac-TX, Hornady GMX) but take an extra inch to get to full diameter.
>>
>>28931196
lol

Is SS109 on par with M193A1?
>>
>>28931259
No. SS109, like M855, is garbage. Don't even bother buying it, the price isn't worth the product.
>>
>>28931297
Is there is a cheaper-esque version of M855A1?
I found some ZQI SS109 for a very cheap price, like the same price as FMJ....but i guess that's for a reason
>>
>>28931133
You see Ivan when you shoot steel cartrige bullet, you shoot whole bullet to kill whole enemy
>>
Can you make explosive/incendiary 556 rounds?
>>
>>28931355

Why would you want it? M855A1 isn't that great. Sure, it's better than M855 but that's not saying much, M855 isn't that great. Just buy some Mk. 318.
>>
>>28931375
Penetration. Putting a hole through something has more stopping power than getting half way through
>>
>>28931375
you wouldn't understand penetration.
you gotta leave your house and not be a faggot virgin
>>
>>28931401
Then buy monolithic copper.

Also, do you plan to shoot cars or what? If so, that is stupid.
>>
>>28931431
Nope, just a home defense magazine. I intend to mix and match different rounds for maximum efficiency.
>>
>>28931440
>Mix and match rounds

Do not
>>
>>28931440
Enjoy your 20 year federal sentence for using an illegal dutch load.
>>
>>28931445
why not?
>>
>>28931445
2 steel core, a hollow point, back to the steel core, 2 hollow points, monolithic copper, razor tips, bonded rounds...LET FREEEDOM RING!
>>
>>28931449
Not sure of the legality mentioned in >>28931448
But for one it's got a small chance to fuck your gun, and you'll never be able to keep track of what got shot when. You could put an FMJ through dindu and SO/child/dog/glorious nugget collection when you thought a hollowpoint was up next. This is the same thing they tell you to NOT do with shotguns too
>>
>>28931448
its not illegal though
the rounds are made in america
>>
>>28931464
A Dutch load is when you use alternating types of ammunition
>>
>>28931462
thanks anon
educating the stupid. i learnt some stuff today
>>
>>28931482
All good. You're also more than likely better off finding one good type of ammunition for HD anyways, and don't do steel core

I've only got steel core 5.45 and .30-06 ball, so if a dindu breaks in I'm gonna have holes in all my walls. Don't make the same mistake I'm bound to make
>>
>>28931448
I dutch loaded your mom when she was 20 years
>>
HP will always be better than FMJ for home defense.
>>
>>28931504
monolithic copper hollow points! as mentioned earlier.
I think thats going to be my go to HD.
>>
Anything is sufficient.
>>
>>28931544
your dick is sufficient
>>
>>28931700
oh stoppppp:)
>>
>>28931013
Don't worry, I'll null your vote with a "not guilty."
