This cartridge’s bullet is very light at 100 grains because it is completely unburdened by dense lead. You’ll get a fast muzzle velocity of 960 fps, but the cartridge is in fact standard pressure.
The lead free ball projectile is not frangible. It actually produces very similar splash-back as a conventional FMJ when it hits a steel target – realistic for training, but not optimal for super up-close and personal training exercises.
The nontoxic performance doesn’t stop at the bullet. This cartridge also features Federal’s Catalyst primer, which is lead-free, noncorrosive, and just as reliable and long-lived as traditional lead styphnate primers. The round’s Boxer-style Catalyst and virgin brass case make it just fine for handloading!
