PolyCase Ammunition is a Veteran-owned, Georgia-based manufacturer whose parent company has 60+ years experience with creating injection molded products. PolyCase started making ammo in 2012 with the intent to revolutionize bullet technology in terms of production methods, construction materials, and methodology of terminal effects. Their bullets, which are constantly evolving, are a blend of copper and polymer which not only poses zero lead poisoning threat to the shooter but is created through "green" processes which leave behind no heavy metal residue.
ARX projectiles feature three arc-shaped flutes which direct channel-opening energy in lateral directions while traveling through soft tissue. The flutes come to a rounded head at the top of the bullet like conventional FMJ rounds and have no issue with feeding nor with penetrating intermediate barriers without clogging or major deflection within 15-yard distances. While the flutes are most effective with right-hand barrel twists, they are still effective out of left-hand twist barrels and their polymer/copper material blend offers low friction and less stress on all firearms. 97 Grains is very light for the caliber but allows for a flatter flight trajectory and faster relative velocity while still using a smaller powder charge which results in less muzzle flip for the shooter.
While these Inceptor rounds feature a radical bullet design, the cartridges are assembled with traditional reloadable brass casings and fitted with non-corrosive primers for reliable function in common firearms.
