This ammunition is manufactured in the United States by Military Ballistics Industries. We normally sell MBI’s reloaded ammo, but this 45 Colt is exceptional. It features virgin, brand new, never before fired brass cases – as well as clean-burning propellant and noncorrosive Boxer primers, so you can reload it yourself if you’d like to.
This round’s 250 grain bullet is perfect for target shooting. The round nose flat point bullet’s name is somewhat self-explanatory. It has the same profile as a conventional round nose bullet, but its tip ends in a flat circle instead of a gentle peak. Its profile makes the RNFP optimal for lever guns’ magazines.
What really sets this round’s bullet apart is its jacket, which is made of polymer instead of gilding metal. A polymer jacket has several advantages. It cannot leave metal residue behind inside a firearm’s barrel. It significantly reduces friction as the bullet passes through a barrel, which helps to extend the barrel’s lifespan. And because polymer is much less rigid and brittle than gilding metal, this round’s bullet presents a much lower risk of hazardous splash-back if it strikes a hard surface. The bullet’s jacket also prevents heat from vaporizing the base of its lead core, which makes it optimal for training in stuffy indoor ranges.
