    “if you like .45 ACP combat round, try .223 Remington”…what does that even mean? Also, the DB15 is pictured with a backwards Aimpoint Micro. And the term “Megapistols” is begging for an anti-2A scare campaign. I love AR pistols, but this article is terrible…

    Another thing that should be noted is that the standard 55grain and 62 grain 5.56 projectiles need a velocity of 2700fps to fragment; this requires a 10″ barrel or more in testing I’ve seen.

    Most of these pistols are under that barrel length, giving you the incredible muzzle blast of a 5.56 SBR, without rifle level terminal ballistics. A .45 ACP JHP or 5.7 SS198 would most likely outperform them in a much smaller package, especially if the goal is HD. I would wager that even the MAC loaded with Gold Dot 124grain +p would perform better.

    Here’s some good testing that I was able to find with a 7.5″ barrel. Most loads either failed to expand, or expanded to sub- .45Ball levels.
