I'll have to take your word for that, I know when I was in the were replacing the lead cores with a Green nylon material and those were classified as Green because they were lead free.
These however will go through things that fmj and jhp would not, I was impressed by what saw in the video of the test that people performed on things other than gel and multiple water jug assailants.
This stuff is great if you can shoot, some say it doesn't penetrate deep enough to kill, the is a story of a contractor that shot a hostile in the ass and the round killed him. Maybe this stuff is urban legend and maybe the is the stuff that Lee Harvy Oswald was packing, I dont know but I purchased some and it what I'm carring until I believe other wise.
