    It has a little better Ballistic coefficient and itís non lead. They pretty much the same. Mod 1 is a silver looking projectile vice copper colored.

    Interesting. What do you base the fragmentation data on? Gel, game, industry data?

    The lowest velocity I've seen Mk 318 tested with came in at 1990ish, with great expansion/fragmentation. I'd also love to see the 1500fps test.
