Two piece case. Claims of 65000 psi and magnetic properties making range pickup a breeze.

Part of me wants to call bullshit, the other half is a bit excited to be able to pick up my own brass without have to sort through other people’s garbage brass. Oh and load 9major with less of a chance of catastrophic failure.

Website featuring Coperators rappelling, shooting with gloves and Weaver stance? Check.

Special dies and custom loading process needed to avoid ripping in half? Check.

"Grueling 1000 round torture test"? (around here we call that 'a weekend') Check.

Seems legit.

I found it interesting and thought I might experiment with them until I saw the special dies and procedure for them.  I don't really see the point when regular brass works and I don't have to do anything special or buy anything to load them.

I know people who use them. Those people are jerks.

If one sneaks into your own regular brass then it comes apart in normal dies and is hard to remove.

Get the casefeed tube magnet. Catches that shitty brass-plated-steel crap too.

I especially like the barricade photo of the shotgun muzzle about two inches away from the other shmoes hand.  Gloves or no, that'll give a nice tingle when Operator X fires a 'Tactical' slug from the shotgun.

Probably snake oil, but I like the idea of picking up my brass with a magnet and being a lazy fuck.

That aluminum stuff is perfectly reloadable. Don't be so wasteful.

I loaded it for years... Until had a primer fall out of one inside the magazine when recoil worked it loose.

It all goes in the trash now.
I won an IDPA match once. It was neat.
