Just a decent video for now of the 3 ammo types:

Does anyone have any decent info on which ammo gives the best results?

I like how during the last one the killlog at the top right say "somedude Militia shotgun Blueprint someotherguy".

From what i remember

Hybrid = Large radius and long duration - Medium damage
Laser = Small radius, almost imidiate - high damage
EMP = Large radius - removes all shields

Yah, that was changed in a recent build, so that blueprints are distinguishable from non-blueprint equipment in the combat logs. I don't like it.

I heard the EMP one causes shields to be unable to recharge. At all. C/D?

It is probably a similar effect to the Flux Grenade, which I don't have a lot of experience using or being hit with.

I don't think there's a militia flux grenade, only a militia locus?

The latter was more of a general statement, not specific to grenades.
ie: nobody realizes there's other vehicles, drop uplinks, biotics, etc
