I'm totally spit balling here and hoping Robo or another LEO Can weigh in?
Taser international makes different cartridges, they are identified by the color coded blast doors. The basic field cartridge has a yellow blast door, it has a range of 15ft with a probe length of 9.65mm. The silver cartridge has a range of 21ft, has a probe length of 9.65mm and is also basic field use. The cartridge that we used for colder months is the green"XP" cartridge, it has a range of 25ft with a longer probe length of 13.5mm. They are able to pierce thicker clothing.
