Ammunition loaded with full metal jacket (FMJ) bullets is often referred to as ball ammunition. It’s designed to feed reliably in semi-automatic handguns, but the bullets do not expand when they hit targets. Syntech® ammunition uses a polymer jacket to completely encapsulate the lead core, for cleaner, cooler shooting with less splash back on hard targets. Wadcutters and semi-wadcutters are designed to cut clean holes in paper targets. Lower velocity rounds also can utilize plain lead round nose bullets that have no jacket.
- Accurate and affordable
- Perfect for training, plinking and competition
- Available in most calibers and grain weights
FMJS DO NOT:
- Stop within the target, penetrating additional barriers such as walls and posing a serious threat to bystanders
A hard copper jacket and lack of a hollow point prevents expansion of FMJ bullets through soft tissue; fired bullets look virtually unchanged after being recovered.
