Frangible rounds have a variety of uses, and if you’ve never tried them, it’s probably time you did. Frangible rounds are put together much the same as your average round with the exception of the bullet, which is made of compressed copper powder instead of solid lead. When a frangible bullet impacts a target that’s harder than itself, it simply shatters. That makes frangible rounds a good choice for certain close-range uses which is why you’ll find law enforcement using them to shoot the locks off doors, among other things. They’re also good for use with steel plates because they drastically reduce the risk of ricochet. And, of course, they’re made from copper, so there isn’t any lead released into the air during range time.
These frangible rounds are for your .223 Remington-chambered rifle. At 45 grain they’re quite lightweight, which is normal due to the substance they’re made from, and that means they’re going to travel at greater speeds. As described above these are frangible rounds which shatter on impact. Each round leaves the barrel of your gun at the stunning muzzle velocity of 2800 feet per second. This ammunition is great for steel plate shooting and close-range tactical training but can also be used for normal target practice.
