I found this today and was wondering if anyone knew anything more about it...

117gr.Hollow Point,1450 FPS,this bullet has very high penetration capabilities in hard surfaces, consistently perforating a 3/4" ballistic polycarbonate plate plus 12" of ballistic gelatin, however it transfers all of its energy into soft targets, when fired in ballistic gelatin the 45acp High Power bullet breaks up into 3 to 4 sharp fragments each piece going in seperate directions. This is a great home defense round.

Found this too...

This ammo is brand new on the market. This ammo has a special 117 grain intelligent bullet, which travels at 1450 FPS. This new line of ammunition is loaded with the first intelligent bullet, made of an alloy (no lead) with a low specific weight. This feature allows light bullets like these to have a size similar to those projectiles made from lead. These are called intelligent bullets because they recognize the hardness of the target at the moment the projectile hits it, and in nanoseconds the projectile configures accordingly. Thus, if the target is very hard, the IQ bullet will have superior penetration while maintaining its weight and size. If the target is soft like ballistic gelatin, it will not overpenetrate, transferring all the energy into the soft target, and breaking apart into three or four sharp fragments, each creating independent wound channels. Two additional features that make this high performance ammunition unique is that they can be fired in any firearm made for the corresponding caliber, without any modification to the firearm, and recoil is substantially less than when shooting regular ammunition. The IQ line of ammunition was specially developed with personal defense and law enforcement applications in mind and it is also suitable for hunting.

Thanks for the input, your post and that link was a real eye opener!
To be more accurate it would be like shooting someone simutaneously at the same point of impact with 4 25 acp rounds from converging angles, but thats still not very reassuring. I'd rather have 230gr Ball than that!

As they say, When something seems too good to be true...
But then thats why I asked here.

Thanks again
