You don’t have to find Doc Brown and his DeLorean to go the year 2050 to get your hands (or at least your eyes) on Space-Age technology. Federal Premium Ammo (you probably have some boxes of their ammo in your case right now!!!) has found a way to reduce shooters lead exposure, while at the same time providing all of you wacky shooters with reliable, affordable, productive ammo!!!
One of the most revered brands under the Federal Premium Ammunition umbrella is American Eagle. The researchers at American Eagle have (within the last 6-8 months) developed a wonderful new round to be used mainly for target practice (not really a good choice for self-defense). As my dear old grandma used to say: practice makes perfect…especially with the zombie apocalypse fast approaching!!! American Eagle Syntech Ammo was revealed at Shot Show ’16 and can be considered as the answer to the costly question of target practice. The red polymer coating that you see eliminates the need for full-metal jacketed rounds. This in-turn has several upsides. These polymer coated rounds effectively reduce the metal on metal contact that is so common with discharging traditional rounds. This will reduce fouling of the barrel which allows the shooter to shoot cleaner and longer. American Eagle boasts that these rounds use a cleaner burning powder that will also reduce the shooters exposure to lead particles. Syntech Ammo also effectively reduces recoverable fragments that are common with firing full-metal jacked rounds. In one word: SAFE! All in all these little doo-hickies seem to be a must have for the avid target shooter! We will give you a quick peek at these rounds in some of the pictures below!!!
***If you are not familiar with the utility of different types of ammo, PSA strongly suggests that you find and enroll in a reputable safety course. Responsible and safe firearm ownership is of paramount concern for all of us!!!
