This round has a Berdan primer, which unlike many old milsurp rounds’ Berdans is non-corrosive to save you extra steps while you’re cleaning. Independence implements a Berdan to discourage handloaders from reusing an aluminum casing, which lacks the elasticity to return to its original dimensions after being fired. Do also note that some ranges dislike aluminum shell casings, which can’t be separated from brass with a convenient magnet.
This cartridge is capped with a 230 grain projectile, the classic bullet weight for the 45 ACP. Its full metal jacket prohibits terminal expansion, but for plinking and target practice the cost-effective, smooth feeding, and clean shooting bullet design is unparalleled. Independence’s propellant burns clean to deliver a steady 890 fps muzzle velocity.
