This nasty looking bullet which has been given such nicknames as the “Medusa Round” and “Roto-Rooter Bullet” is actually a frangible training round. The bullet’s core are woven zinc strands that unfurl upon impact on a hard surface, reducing potential ricochets in close quarters; CQT on the box stands for Close Quarter Training. It’s been said that this is the ammo airline pilots train with.
There is some debate whether these are even worth using as defensive ammo since they’re training rounds. I don’t think they’re even in production anymore and are viewed as an obscure collectable ammo like Black Talons. It’s not to say they aren’t lethal however, just that some view jacketed hollow points to be more practical. (GRH)
