Winchester offers their SuperClean NT line of ammunition to completely remove lead from the shooting experience in order to create a safer and healthier environment. This 5.56 NATO cartridge’s 55 grain jacketed soft point projectile has a tin core that still delivers excellent accuracy and devastating expansion on impact, but without contaminating the area where it ultimately winds up. Its non-toxic bullet is complemented by its heavy metal and lead-free primer and clean burning propellant, so you’ll take heart that you’re not harming the landscape -- or your health -- wherever you fire this round.
These cartridges further only provide 85 percent of the felt recoil that comparable conventional rounds do on average, so you’ll be able to fire them comfortably for longer periods of time. Despite all of its health and comfort promoting features, this round still delivers a 3,150 fps muzzle velocity and the kind of performance you need to shine while shooting targets or game. It’s a great solution when you’d like to shoot in areas where toxic ammunition is banned without compromising your experience.
