Default High-Tech Bullet That Does Something Pretty Cool to Help Hit Its Target

A high percentage of bullets fired miss their intended targets, especially in high stress situations. So a Colorado-based company has developed a bullet that makes it much easier for you to hit your target. How? It actually expands to “increase hit probability.”

Developed by Advanced Ballistics Concepts, the Multiple Impact Technology (Mi3) bullet “unlocks and expands to a predetermined diameter and pattern of spread upon leaving the tip of a rifled barrel,” the company explained in a news release.

The Mi3 bullet is effective for close and mid-range use, creating a “spider web-like effect prior to impact.”

Here’s more about the tech packed into the bullet:
Mi3 is the first bullet to interconnect three separate segments with Kevlar strings that expand like a spider web to a predetermined diameter and spread pattern that not only dramatically improves the accuracy and hit probability, but does so without disrupting the normal flight path of a spinning bullet. Mi3 bullets employ a proprietary “accelerated radial spread”™ that compensates for most, if not all, of typical shooter error.
At the time the bullet was introduced in 2011, the company was developing three types: the non-lethal Mi3 Stinger, the semi-lethal Mi3 Stunner and fully-lethal Mi3 Stopper. The Mi3 is available for handguns and shotguns.

Once deployed, the segments of our proprietary Wide Envelopment Bullet™ (W.E.B™) are tethered together (like a spider web), to offer the shooter a much wider impact zone, reducing the occurrence of missed shots and thereby reducing the risk of collateral damage. (A standard .45 cal slug is .452 inches in diameter and remains that way until it collides with something, where as a T3™ round of the same caliber can be made to expand (instantly upon leaving the barrel) to a predetermined diameter (range 6 “ to 16 “ or greater) . . .

T3 bullets are similar to multi-pellet buckshot in that both deliver multiple strike points. However, a T3 round enhances performance because the bullet expands up to 4x faster than buckshot. The bullet design also allows each segment to have a greater mass which in turn produces greater stopping power.



T3 is the first bullet to interconnect three separate segments with Kevlar strings that expand like a spider web to a predetermined diameter and spread pattern that not only dramatically improves the accuracy and hit probability, but does so without disrupting the normal flight path of a spinning bullet. T3 bullets employ a proprietary “accelerated radial spread” that compensates for most, if not all, of typical shooter error. . .

Because every T3 bullet offers a wide shot profile, it compensates for marksman’s error which significantly increases hit probability.

Multiple Impact Bullet Technology
Q: How much does it cost?
A box of 45ACP has a M.S.R.P. of $45.00; but most dealers are selling it competitively at a Street Price of $39.95. A box of 12 Gauge Mi-billets has a M.S.R.P. of $55.00 but most dealers are selling it competitively at a Street Price of $49.99. Less expensive than one would expect!
More info at the web-site regarding types, etc.


Beyond that,

I think I'll stick with my Crosman BB/pellet guns.

This is nothing new. In the 17 century pirates were fastening together multiple canon projectiles. This to break the masts of other ships....Hence the term "shiver me timbers" Also I recall back in the 1960's there was a law in the New Jersey fish and game code outlawing wired buckshot. In those days buckshot was the only legal missile for deer hunting. Someone came up with the idea of fastening buckshot pellets together with wire. It was quickly outlawed.

I do, however, admit that the manufacturer of these rounds has taken it to the next level.
