  • Patent number: 10222185
    Abstract: An improved shotshell of the type having a hull, a head at the proximal end, propellant disposed in the hull, a wad disposed in the hull distal to the propellant, and a load disposed in the hull in distal to the wad. The improvement comprises the load including a plurality of individual shot, at least a portion of which are at least partially surrounded by a friable material that breaks up upon the firing of the shell to release to the shot and results in a reduced rate of dispersion of the plurality of individual shot compared to cartridges without the friable material.

  • Patent number: 9562753
    Abstract: A projectile according to exemplary embodiments generally includes a jacket with nose, middle, and heel portions. The nose portion includes a forward cavity. The heel portion includes a rearward cavity having sidewalls. A dense core is within the rearward cavity and bonded to the sidewalls. Upon upset of the projectile, the portion of the jacket forming the forward cavity peels generally back toward the heel portion thereby forming petals, and the sidewalls and the dense core axially compress and radially expand to define a bulge portion, with the jacket material substantially covering the dense core material thereby inhibiting exposure of the dense core material to the upset media.

  • Patent number: 9434616
    Abstract: A sodium hypochlorite composition comprising between about 25% and about 40% sodium hypochlorite, in the form of a slurry of sodium hypochlorite pentahydrate crystals in a mother liquor saturated in sodium hypochlorite. The composition can include sodium chloride, and an alkai stabilizer such as sodium hydroxide and sodium carbonate. The slurry is preferably between about ?15° C. and about 10° C. A method of transporting or storing sodium hypochlorite is also provided in which the sodium hypochlorite is in the form of a slurry of sodium hypochlorite pentahydrate crystals in a mother liquor saturated in sodium hypochlorite. The composition can include sodium chloride, and an alkali stabilizer such as sodium hydroxide and sodium carbonate. The slurry is preferably between about ?15° C. and about 10° C.

  • Patent number: 9046333
    Abstract: A bullet having a jacket, having a rear section, and a front section, having an open front end; a rear core disposed in the rear section of the jacket and bonded thereto; and a front core, separate from the rear core, disposed in the front section of the jacket, adjacent the open front end. The front section of the jacket can expand after impact with the target and release the front core to form an initial volume of disruption, while the rear core and at least the rear section of the jacket penetrate, past the initial volume of disruption.
