This cartridge features a 75 grain projectile with a total metal jacket. Such a jacket provides all the benefits of an FMJ -- the prevention of barrel leading, resistance to deformation under intense chamber pressures, and more certain penetration of the target -- but it takes things a step further by additionally encapsulating the bullet’s base. It thus shields the lead in the core against white hot propellant gasses, keeping your breathing space unadulterated by a thick haze of aerosolized lead that wouldn’t do your lungs any favors.
Federal’s brass casing is one that begs to be reloaded, and their non-corrosive Boxer primer means you can wait for as long as you’d like to crack open this box of 100 rounds. These rounds’ sturdy box will keep its contents fresh for ages as well!
