    As far as "real world applications. . . Sounds like a great home/self defense round to me.

    My reaction was along the same lines. If I wasn't hearing it here I would come here to find out the straight scoop. Mac

    3). Doesn't destroy the rifling like original frangibles.
    4). Functions, feeds, and shoots just like 123 gr FMJ in an AK
    5). Fragments into dust upon impact with hard surfaces like steel, concrete etc..
    4). Will not over penetrate a person, head or body shot. Damage is very extensive.
    I would say "show me."

    Corbon has cooperated with Barnes Bullets to produce a line of ammo called MPG. (It is a silly sort of name "multi-purpose green"...I would prefer Malignant Personality Grenade, but that is just me.) My guys at Barnes advise it is a sort of 7.62x39 version of their varmint grenade.

    It is sold by Corbon as a frangible training round. I was speaking with Mike Shovel from Corbon and with a friend of mine at Barnes and they agree with the "dual use" purpose of the round. It is not a general use cartridge, but rather, I see it as a CQB "inside" load.

    This is what the "official" word is -

    New Multi Purpose Green Line (MPG)

    This innovative ammo from CORĀ®BON is perfect load for target shooting and lead free ranges. Its uses a gilding metal jacket with a compressed copper core. MPG disintegrates on impact with steel targets and is non-ricoceting. This low penetrating round can also be used as a self defense round.

    It runs a108gr Barnes LRRP Bullet at 2500fps (Energy 1499ftlbs). No...nobody has been shot with it yet, but we have some folks that are planning on shooting something hairy and toothy with it.

    On concept, it looks very good.
