This cartridge’s biggest draw is its heat-treated aircraft-grade aluminum casing. Aluminum costs substantially less to get out of the ground than the copper that’s requisite for brass, so the lower expense of making this cartridge’s casing is pleasantly reflected in its attractive price tag. Aluminum only weighs one third as much as brass does, too, so lugging a few boxes of these rounds around will hardly feel like a chore.
Its lighter weight is partly why the 30mm rounds fired by the GAU-8 Avenger Gatling-style autocannon have aluminum casings. If it’s good enough for the gun on the Fairchild Republic A-10 Thunderbolt II, then it’s certainly good enough for your Glock 35!
