Using lighter-than-typical bullets, the new HPR Black Ops ammunition promises to deliver superior accuracy and “unparalleled takedown force.” Initially, the Black Ops ammo will be offered in 9mm, .40 S&W and .45 ACP. Another load in .223 Rem is said to be available soon.
According to HPR, the bullets used in the new ammo are Open Tipped Frangible (OTF) projectiles. The OTF bullet has a powdered metal core with a jacket. The jacket and core are designed to separate when striking soft tissue, yet hold together and track straight when encountering an intermediate barrier such as auto glass, sheet rock, and car doors.
