For the eco-conscious folks that shoot a lot at the range, or for those who want a frangible, fully jacketed projectile for urban environments, SinterFire produces a lead free, frangible range ammo that can double duty for those who prefer ball ammo frangible loads for personal defense.
This is a .40 Smith and Wesson load with a 125 grain projectile made with a pressed metal powder in a process that creates a sintered metal composition. The real story here is the reduction in ricochet for steel target or indoor range shooting, or for when you need to know that your lead content is non existent. The bullet effectively dissipates back into small pieces (and in some cases actually pulverizes into metal powder again), upon impact on hard targets, reducing ricochet and improving the life of steel targets and backstop materials.
The benefits of frangible sintered metal type projectiles are plenty, but they are a very specific product that fits best with people who want less lead involved in their shooting process. Generally speaking sintered metal is good to reduce deflection and improve energy dump at the target, without having lead involved.
If you are concerned with lead exposure or waste, ricochet potential; or you want a frangible round, this is a solid option in .40 S&W and offers a quality construction from a known company in the space.
Suitable for use in any firearm that shoots .40S&W. Packaged 50 rounds per box.
