Remington Ammo’s new lead-free frangible pistol ammo offers no-ricochet performance ideal for training, competition, and law enforcement use where airborne lead or spent lead recovery is an issue. Made of compressed metal particles shaped into standard profile 9mm, .40 S&W, and .45 ACP specifications, the Disintegrator bullet core is completely protected with hard copper plating, ensuring accuracy comparable to lead core ammo. Not only does this ammo reduce wear and damage to bullet traps and backstops, it also virtually eliminates fragment ricochet even when fired against angled surfaces.
