One Shot, Five Wounds: Multiple Projectile Ammo


November 28, 2020

What is superior to one .44 Magnum projectile? What about five of, all conveyed with one draw of the trigger? Better believe it, that is our opinion. More is in every case better.

Ammo pioneers, Lehigh Defense have built up a gun round that shoot various shots with one draw of the trigger. Their reasoning is that one injury channel is incredible, yet five is phenomenal and since the slugs spread out it makes hitting your objective in a high-stress circumstance simpler.

Here is the depiction of the Multiple Projectile Ammunition from Lehigh's site.

Various Projectile Technology centers around our conviction that numerous injury trails are superior to one (the FBI vouches for this in their Handgun Wounding Factors and Effectiveness Training Manual. It offers clients the advantage of various shots from a solitary cartridge through the cautious machining of strong copper or metal projectiles intended for controlled scattering.

The joining of settling cones permits us to make enormous frontal measurements, improving terminal execution while expanding the quantity of shots a cartridge can hold. This offers critical enhancements over other plan ideas utilizing delicate lead balls and washers.

Various Projectile ammo gives a critical preferred position in high-stress shooting circumstances where control is restricted or shooter experience might be being referred to. The way that a solitary shot spreads out as it moves toward its objective factually improves your odds of viably disposing of the danger in your current circumstance.

spread:

15 ft: "Five injuries in a 2×3 inch gathering"

25ft: "Five injuries in a 4×4 inch gathering"

35ft: "Five shots in a 5×7 inch gathering"

The Firearms Blog results were as per the following:

5 yards: 1.4″ gathering, 4 shots inside .73 with one anomaly.

10 Yards: 6″ gathering (one adjust target upper left), 4 shots inside 1.8″ with one anomaly.

15 Yards: 10″ gathering, pretty even spread between shots

Top: 5 Yards Middle: 10 Yards Bottom: 15 Yards

Overall they felt the spreads was pretty consistent and close to what was advertised.

Recoil:

 

The tester from the firearms Blog stated that he did not even think he was shooting a .44 magnum, because the recoil was so lite. Which is not surprising because the round is only half the muzzle velocity of a standard round.

Penetration:

Penetration was defiantly lacking. The round barely left a dent into the steel plate that The Firearms Blog shot at. They stated that:

Shooting the rounds at steel plates at a distance of 10 yards also yielded some interesting results.   I fired a round at an 8″ steel plate on a Texas Star array.  To drive home how slow and soft-hitting these rounds are, I watched the main round softly blip off the plate and land directly in front of it, on the wooden railroad tie that was weighing down the target.  The impact did not even knock the plate off the star… This leads one to conclude that minimal energy transfer took place, apart from the main projectile.  I also came away with serious doubts as to the ability of the segments to penetrate heavy clothing or tissue.

Conclusion:

While the round is pretty cool and the concept is sound the round seems to lack in the one place it is supposed to preform, knocking down the bad guy. This round may need to go back to the drawing board. Maybe take out one of the projectiles and add a little more propellent.
