This round’s 135 grain bullet is not a typical FMJ. It is a frangible bullet, which is composed of fine copper and tin particles. A frangible bullet is hard enough to clear the barrel but brittle enough to get pulverized the instant it collides with any surface harder than itself. If you’re firing on steel targets, then a frangible bullet’s crumbling terminal performance represents a much lower risk of taking a little fleck of shrapnel to your face or torso.
A frangible bullet also happens to be lead-free. That means this ammo won’t scatter toxic lead particles into the air during ignition or impact, and it also means it won’t deposit any lead fouling inside your barrel.
Its special bullet aside, this is Winchester’s usual high-quality American-made ammunition. These lower-recoil training loads have the reloadable brass cases, non-corrosive Boxer primers and low-fouling powder you expect from one of the world’s biggest names in shooting.
