Well, here's the interesting thing- if they make the shell heavier, it will serve to destabilize the round by moving the center of gravity closer to the likely center of pressure (near the equator).

So, I wonder if they will be encapsulating the .50 balls themselves. If so, this may afford the opportunity for a heavier fill but, this would bring the round closer to violating the FSR patent.
