I used your 223 60gr DRT bullet for deer hunting this year. Some will never understand how well this bullet performs on deer. The deer was about 75 yards away, when I put him in my EOTech sight and let the bullet fly out of my AR-15 1-9 twist. The deer just simply dropped. It did not even try to turn and run. It just simply dropped. All I can think about is next deer season to see it happen all over again. Drop, Drop, Drop..

This is Chris Velez, (Waterfront Commission Police, NYPD retired) you sent me some of your ammo to T&E. Well I finished some more range shooting today with the 308 and 223 ammo. I ABSOLUTELY LOVE YOUR AMMO. I WILL BE RECOMMENDING THIS AMMO TO EVERY LE SNIPER I COME ACROSS! I was able to pull off 1 inch groups at the 200 yard line and 1.5 inch groups at the 300 yard line with the 308. I am looking forward to finally meeting you at the North American Sniper Summit in a few weeks. I have also formally submitted the request for my agency to change to the DRT ammo for our patrol rifles as well. I am hopeful that the change will be made.
I’ve spent most of my life training in various shooting arenas, with 20 years of it serving in the US Navy SEAL Teams, 11 years as a USMC trained military sniper.
My experience with non-lead projectile technology is extensive. Having applied DRT’s technology in military, hunting and target applications, I believe their non-lead projectiles are the answer. DRT bullets continue to amaze me with their unlimited performance and application potential. more »
Thank you for the opportunity to test some of your company’s ammo. To say that we were impressed would be an under statement. The ammo did everything that you said it would. We shot the .223 using a Colt AR-15 from 25 yards. On a 6″ pine tree, we had entry but not exit. On a 4″ pipe made of 1/4″ steel, we had a clean entry, but again no exit. On a 6″ plate made of 1/2″ steel we had a clean penetration. more »
I went hunting yesterday and ran into some hogs. I was able to take one hog with your 223 ammo and boy did it work. The hog was about 200 to 225 pounds and I shot him from about 75 yards. He went right down and didn’t go anywhere. When dressing him out I was amazed at the internal damage your ammo did to him. Can’t wait for some 270 ammo. Take care and I’ll let you know if I get something else. I will make sure my friends hear about this.

I am in Namibia right now – the DRT ammo drops them good! Wish I had them for my daughter’s 7mm-08 … phenomenal bullet performance both in flight and upon impact. The footage is incredible.

I had a chance to test some of the ammunition that you sent side by side with some of the currently marketed frangible’s as well as some popular LE loads. I was very surprised! Bad news is, that the photographs (memory card) have been misplaced. First up was the Glaser 9mm 80 grain “Silver”. The muzzle flash was pronounced even in day light. The recoil and muzzle flip were snappy and what one would expect from a 9mm +P+. more »

that, animal can pack some lead… He assured me the ammo would do the job…
