From the Manufacturer:

The .223 55 grain round is the ultimate ammunition for hunting deer or wild boar sized animals, and the ultimate .223 round for self defense. Safe to use in both 5.56 and .223 Remington chambers, this bullet is what put DRT on the map. A non lead projectile, this bullet features a hollowpoint flatbased (HPFB) design. Accurate out to 350 yards and works well in a 1:7", 1:8", and 1:9" twist rate barrels. You can expect wound cavities of 3-5” in diameter with 14-16” of penetration. It is reliable, accurate, has reduced ricochet, and is lethal ammunition.

We insert a compressed core of powdered metal that is not bonded or sintered. At the end of this operation we have a projectile with perfect spin stability. In lead bullets you have bubbles in the core and impurities in the lead. In our cores we use laboratory grade materials that are 99.9% pure. We then combine the bullet with new brass using automatic loaders for making consistent parts.

The Terminal Shock bullet will not come apart until it hits something liquid or something harder than itself. This bullet is barrier blind - meaning it will go through barriers like bone, sheet rock, light steel, car doors, plywood, and siding, without expanding. It will not penetrate through a person, animal, water, or hardened steel, however.

When the bullet penetrates a gel block or organic tissue, the soft material going into the hollow point actually makes the jacket peel like a banana, exposing the core, which is now spinning at high RPM - unsupported. There are no large chunks, just fine dust doing the terminal damage.

The difference between DRT and other frangible ammo is that it will penetrate barriers like bone and muscle and stay together. Once it hits the liquid, it expands. So basically it expands in the organs, right where you want it to. Expending 100% of the energy within the animal or person allows the damage to stay inside and causing rapid incapacitation.
