Typical Lead Ammunition Contains a Lead Core within a Copper Jacket, and a Lead Primer. The Core Can Penetrate Many Solid Objects, with the Copper Jacket Breaking Apart and Sending Dangerous Metal Shards Back to the Shooter. The Lead From the Round Contaminates the Environment and Aersols Generated During Primer Ignition at the Base of the Bullet Contaminate the Shooter and Others Near the Shooter.
Non-Toxic Frangible Ammunition Contains a Non-Toxic Projectile, and a Non-Lead Primer. Projectiles Are Typically Composed of a Metal-Polymer or a Compressed Metal Powder. The Projectile Breaks Up Into Small Pieces on Impact with Surfaces Harder Than Itself. Non-Toxic Frangible Ammunition Reduces Contamination of the Environment and the Shooter, While Significantly Reducing Over Penetration and Ricochet Hazards.
