This round ends in a 115 grain full metal jacket projectile: simple, accurate, and non-expanding. The bullet’s jacket fortifies it against catching in a feeding mechanism or deforming under the stress of ignition, and also lets it leave less lead residue behind in a firearm’s barrel. Blazer’s FMJ is extra nice because its base is protected by its jacket. This prohibits hot propellant gasses from cooking and evaporating the bullet’s lead core, promoting a healthier training environment – particularly indoors, where the ventilation ain’t so good.
No surprises here: Brass label ammo features new production brass cases, which shooters like for their tendency to keep an action cleaner than aluminum could have, as well as their suppleness which permits handloading. Blazer uses CCI’s Boxer primers, which are sensitive and non-corrosive, and loads consistent charges of propellant to promote steady muzzle velocities. This round’s 1,145 fps muzzle velocity was recorded out of a 4” barrel, same length as a Glock 19 or Walther PPQ M2.
