This cartridge features a steel shell casing. The big upside of steel is that it’s significantly more affordable than traditional brass, which is mostly made out of copper. The big downside to steel is that it isn’t considered suitable for reloading, save for in particularly dire circumstances. This round’s non-corrosive Berdan primer won’t require additional steps during cleaning.
This round has a 62 grain projectile. Its jacket itself is made of cartridge brass, which is tougher than traditional copper. As a result, this ammo will be allowed at ranges that don't allow steel projectiles.. A full metal jacket bullet isn’t generally considered optimal for self-defense, but on the other hand no living thing has ever been better off for having 62 grains of metal slamming into it at supersonic speed.
