    I don't seem to understand what the problem here is?? Outside, of the rather unique marketing Extreme Shock employs, has anyone here EVER shot any of the rounds??

    From the responses, I can assume no one has. I carry a .45 Colt 1991A1 Commander loaded with the Extreme Shock .45 AFR (Air Freedom Round). I have nothing but good things to say about the bullets. They are reliable and DO NOT over-penetrate a target. Who cares about ninjas and nytrillium, the ammo works!

    Their new website is loaded with info: www.extremeshockusa.net

    Who gives a rats ***

    what the stuff is made of it works, we went boar hunting i was using the exploding nija round in 44 mag shot a big boar at 20 yards through the shoulder dropped him one shot buddies was using 308 put one right behind the shoulder the hog is still travling as far as i know other 2 was using barnes x bullets which used 5 shots to drop a smaller hog than mine and winchester 44 mag on the 4th hog 4 shots later after tracking half a day we finally got him.

    granted their first marketing sucked but the new stuff looks better and great customer service.

    Great product i have actually used it and good company

    And no, I am not about to buy 200 rounds of gumdrop bullets to see if they function reliably in my 1911. Pre-fragmented ammo is marginal in theory, and even worse in reality.

    That doesn't make sense. Maybe the round failed to work a intended. The FBI reccomends that a self-defense round go through at least 1 foot of ballistics gelatin, and the extreme shock rounds can't even do that.

    Welcome to the forums, Wildcard.

    You are evidently safe from complaints that you don't use the search function.

    Three posts as of this writing and you've used them to resurrect three long dead ES threads dating from:

    Feb 2005 (!)
    Feb 2008
    Oct 2008

    We're glad you like it. We're delighted that you evidently feel it's a solid value. I would however respectfully suggest that you're unlikely to change any minds being a one trick pony on behalf of ES.

    Many of us aren't likely to change our tune until and unless Box-O-Truth retests and finds it appreciably changed from its former construction.

    Besides, if I'm going to pay a premium for a spiffy box, it's going to have pictures of the Mandrell sisters on it - not mall ninjas.

    Relax, pull up a chair and set a spell.

    I believe I recall some testing of that particular round:

    Am I the only one that misses Birdman? That guy was a genius.

    And welcome to our other new member - have fun and stick around!

    Maybe Wildcard Rob will convince his company to give every member on THR a case of ES to test for ourselves. I'm sure it will create a new slew of posts of "which ES for Grizzly Bear?"
