This cartridge has a 124 grain projectile, though we have not yet determined its muzzle velocity. The bullet’s full metal jacket enhances more reliable feeding and wards off rapid barrel fouling. Its inability to expand following penetration makes it a suboptimal choice for personal protection.
Özkursan’s cases appear to be made out of brass, but they are in fact steel cases with brass plating. The plating does help them to feed more reliably into a semi-auto’s chamber, although steel cases are virtually useless for reloading and this ammo will attract a magnet. These cartridges also have Berdan primers, which perform indistinguishably from the more common Boxer primer. This Turkish-made ammo is non-corrosive.
