Default Has anyone used/seen this ammo?


I was at a local gun shop today and came across this new designed ammo for range use. According to the salesperson at the store the ammo is copper dust compacted together to form the bullet. The firing cap is brass/ traditional design. The name of this ammo mfg. is Precision Ammunition and on the back of the box is written; "Frangible ammunition is primarily designed for range use." The ammo is lead-free and comes in a box of 50. I saw all the popular calibers for sale. According to the salesperson .380 won't be manufactured and .357 Magnum, but .38 Special will. I guess the ammo mfg. (Precision Ammunition) felt that a .357 Magnum user can use .38 Special instead. It seems that the ammo is new to the market and is intended for indoor air conditioned Gun Ranges that EPA is regulating to be Lead-Free. I must say for $14.99, I have found some new range/target ammo. The ammo is "Made with Pride in the USA" in Florida.
So what do you all think?

What weight bullet is that ammo you bought? I have heard of this type of ammo in shotgun loads for LE to breech doors and for self-defense in handgun rounds where overpenetration is a concern. The price is not outrageous, but I can buy WWB .40 S&W FMJ's at Wally World for $28/100.

I asked the same question, the salesclerk said "158gr."
The box pictured above is .38 Special's. I'm going to run them through
my S&W .357 Mag. model 581. IMO; "Wally World" is the best place to get ammo, if it's in stock. Blazer Brass .40 FMJ goes for $12.97 for 50 rounds, in my neck of the woods. This new range ammo for $14.99, I'm liking it, cuts down the cost at the range where I normally squeeze off anywhere from 200-500 rounds monthly. Hope the price doesn't go up, but as it gets popular I'm sure it will.

Yes I see that. Not good for me - my guns are sighted-in for specific weights - .38/.357 I only use 158gr. .40 S&W I only shoot 180gr. Those rounds are ok for target practice, but not self-defense - not enough energy.

This ammo is sold as range ammo only.
