SIM-X bullet technology accomplishes what was before thought to be unattainable–penetration control regardless of velocity. Using our proprietary SUBMASS™ bullet core materials, combined with ultra-high velocities, we have achieved terminal bullet performance that is controlled and predictable shot to shot.
PENETRATION DEPTH CONTROL
SIM-X DutyCore™ ammunition incorporates our proprietary kinetic-ceramic core material. This solid material behaves as a non-Newtonian fluid in that it acts differently depending on the amount of force applied. Our ability to blend this material matched specifically to the desired penetration and upset level allows us to design projectiles that will penetrate to equal depth, regardless of muzzle velocity.
When a bullet reaches its target, the only way for the bullet to expend all of its energy in the target is to penetrate the target, expand and come to rest without exiting the far side. SIM-X high-velocity, SubMass™ technology accomplishes this using our proprietary core material which can be tailored to the desired penetration, regardless of velocity. 100% of the bullet’s energy is therefore transferred into the target, resulting in quick elimination of the threat.
PERMANENT WOUND CAVITY
Permanent vs. temporary wound cavities. A cartridge’s ability to stop a threat is dependent on several factors. Among these is the wound cavity that the bullet creates in soft tissue. Traditional pistol rounds, only the actual ability of the bullet to expand and its consequent outside diameter contribute to the wound cavity in soft tissue. For the temporary cavity to be larger and more permanent, a round must be traveling at a much greater velocity than traditional pistol rounds. SIM-X SubMass™ technology with velocities twice that with traditional pistol rounds create permanent wound cavities. The result equals threat elimination.
