Description: A direct fire 40 mm round which fires approximately 69 each, 14 grain, 80 durometer rubber projectiles. This round produces a painful and powerful blunt impact and was designed for single or multiple target engagement allowing escalation of force from a safe distance prior to use of lethal means.
Background: The Hornets Nest was developed to overcome the shortcomings of conventional rubber ball ammunition. Most rubber ammunition is designed to be skipped off the ground into the target. This form of firing can be adversely affected by snow, mud, and soft grassy terrain. The Hornets Nest is designed as a direct fire, behavior modification round which is fired using conventional target acquisition techniques. The Hornets Nest can also be skip fired in close proximity situations.
