DoubleTap Equalizer ammo uses two projectiles in a single cartridge to deliver a devastating blow on the target: Â both game animals and criminal attackers. Â The projectiles are of different design, each wounding the target in different manners.
The exposed bullet is a standard jacketed hollowpoint. Â The second projectile is stacked under the hollowpoint and is solid lead. Â Exact configuration of the second projectile – ball or wadcutter type bullet – depends on the load. Â There are some great photos of these cartridges and bullets at the IAA forum here.
Assuming everything works as advertised, the hollowpoint would strike the target and mushroom as designed. Â The second projectile would then penetrate deep, creating a second, and different, wound channel.
But, can both projectiles hit a single target? Â The key is in making sure the bullets do not spread too far away from each other. Â According to DoubleTap’s blog, the accuracy of these loads is exceptionally good. Â At 25 yards the projectiles are within 2″ of each other. Â Tom Gresham, host of the Gun Talk radio program, stated he was seeing a 2″ – 4″ spread on the projectiles at about 20 yards.
The hollowpoint hits point of aim, according to the information posted on the DoubleTap site. Â The secondÂ projectileÂ rises slightly, meaning it will hit a little higher than the JHP.
