Most hunters I’ve talked with in the last year have never heard of the centerfire rifle ammo made by Dynamic Research Technologies (DRT), in Grant City, Missouri. That’s too bad because DRT rifle ammo packs an awesome punch, leaving game animals “Dead Right There.”
DRT rifle rounds are lead-free and frangible, made from a highly compressed core of metal powder inserted into a copper jacket. They’re engineered to punch through bones and heavy muscle, and then explode into the soft tissue. The frangible projectile erupts into multiple wound channels, and every bit of the bullet’s forward energy is transferred into the animal. Photos of DRT .223 and .308 fired into ballistic gel show the awesome stopping power of these rounds.
