The NXG bullet is made of SinterFire’s special copper blend. It contains no lead, which makes it lighter than usual at 100 grains and gives it much cleaner performance. The lead-free bullet puts a stop to lead fouling of the barrel, and it doesn’t produce toxic vapor while propellant gasses heat it up during ignition. This lead-free bullet is not frangible – it will not erupt into dust and fragments when it connects with a hard surface or object, although the ductile material it is made of does present less chance of ricocheting or splashing shrapnel back at the shooter.
SinterFire’s lead-free bullet is a wise choice for training in indoor ranges, where lead vapor can hang in a thick, carcinogenic fog. The copper bullet additionally features a flat nose profile that punches a clean hole through paper, as well as a cannelure to prevent setback. SinterFire’s ammo uses conventional Boxer primers and brass cases with central flash holes, so it’s worth reloading.
