This round features Federal’s groundbreaking Total Synthetic Jacket (TSJ) projectile. The 130 grain bullet has a traditional solid lead core – what makes it special is its candy apple red polymer jacket. The TSJ thus eliminates lead and copper fouling, and it reduces friction so dramatically that it appreciably extends a barrel’s lifespan.
The TSJ’s polymer jacket virtually eliminates the risk of splash-back while you are firing upon steel targets. It also prevents any vaporization of the lead core during ignition, which alongside Federal’s lead-free Catalyst Boxer primer serves to keep your rifle – and your shooting environment itself – cleaner.
This cartridge’s TSJ possesses a profile that enhances smoother feeding in a carbine platform. Its 1,140 fps muzzle velocity (16” test barrel) is similarly optimized for more reliable performance in carbine-type firearms. Brass-cased, reloadable, and great for 9mm pistols as well!
