These Varmint Grenade, made by Barnes are amazing. I am going to have to try them out in the near future 🙂

In the below video they fire one of them into a grape and the bullet completely disintegrates.

Barnes makes these in .243/6mm (62 gr), .22 (36 – 50 gr) and .204 (26 gr) caliber.

More on the bullet here.

    can anyone tell me what company loads them in .22? I live in canada, if that affects availability.
