The ABC’s of Multiple Impact Bullets
Advanced Ballistics Concepts, LLC (ABC), a ballistics research and development company, says it has invented the first multi-part bullet that immediately unlocks and expands to a predetermined diameter upon leaving the tip of a rifled barrel.
The company claims this new Multiple Impact Bullet, or Mi-Bullet, significantly improves a shooter’s hit probability in ultra-close and mid-range engagements because the bullet produces a web-like strike profile prior to impact.
Mi-Bullets are similar to multi-pellet buckshot in that both deliver multiple strike points. However, a Mi-Bullet round enhances performance by harnessing the spinning forces from a rifled barrel to expand the fragments to the predetermined set diameter up to 3x faster than buckshot.
The patented Mi-Bullets are the first to interconnect three separate segments with ballistic grade tethers that allow the fragment to expand like a web to a predetermined diameter, 14 inches for a handgun or 24 inches for a shotgun spread pattern.
The company says this process occurs without disrupting the normal flight path of a spinning bullet because they deploy a proprietary accelerated radial spread.
Jaye Kuchman, co-founder of the company, said, “According to national law enforcement statistics, more than 93% of 1st shots and nearly 80% of all shots fired in life and death situations miss their mark. Our research shows that these missed shots are the effect of ‘last-second twitch,’ which occurs to some extent whenever a gun is fired, particularly in highly stressful situations. Because every Mi-Bullet offers a wide shot profile, they compensate for marksman error.”
