    Rumor has it Gunwerks was testing the Sonic Ripple specifically for that shot. Can anyone confirm the rumor?





    April 1, 2013. At the end of this year, Berger Bullets plans to introduce a new projectile that may truly be the most revolutionary bullet design since the advent of jacketed spitzers in the late 19th Century. Berger’s new bullet is unlike anything we have ever seen before. It features concentric curved ridges, or “ripples”, on the bearing surface. Tests show that this new projectile, dubbed the “Sonic Ripple Bullet”, has signficantly less drag than conventional bullets (no matter what their ogive configuration). In addition, the Sonic Ripple design provides increased stability at all velocities (allowing barrels with slower twist rates for a given bullet weight).

    Funny stuff!!


    Actually, there is an interesting (to me, at least) factoid about the video of the drone being shot down. That is some video released by the military of thier new ship born laser shooting down a drone!!.

    No balistic calculations or wind doping....just point and shoot!!
