    I was sawing up scrap into blanks for milling into cube ammo today, and had a handful of bits going back to the steel barrel.
    So I'm thinking,"I d hate to get hit with these nasty, burr-covered sharp devils. Maybe they aren't scrap..."

    They have lame mass alone, so they need to travel as one, then split on impact :

    Some kind of light tape will act as a Sabot, and if this is on the end of a crossbow bolt we can eliminate tumble...

    The bolt hits with full energy of the 200+grams, tough zombie skin stops the scotch tape, then all of these plates do......?

    I'm not sure, but should be messy:D

    Any predictions? I'm not set up to test ammo this heavy (yet). Maybe the concept will interest someone who is.

    Hmmm, a brutal weapon. Not quite skull penetrating but if it hits a zombie neck, Its head won't be upright.

    This is a good idea! And that would be truly nasty to receive! Essentially, a rubber-fired fragmentation grenade...that is just disgusting and twisted and sick. I love it :D
