    New polymer jacket ammo.

    I know its a no-no to reload for SD but, with higher ammo prices (due in part to metal shortage) would going with new technology be feasible? Hear is a link to a new polymer jacketed bullet:

    I don't really care about the efficiency as much as lowering the copper cost. Brass can be reused and lead isn't going up as fast. It might be a partial solution to range work. This would save your praemium SD ammo primarily for carry.

    In the end will poly-jacketed bullets be the future? Just like polymer frames have gained ground?

    I have heard about a lot of people loading their own bullets for self defense in their rifles, but not commonly in pistols.

    I've reloaded Bear creek moly
    coated bullets in 38spl,357mag,
    44spl and 45 colt.What i like the
    best is the lack of airborn lead
    dust on a indoor range.They are
    just as accurate as jacketed bullets and just as easy to clean
    up after.

    Don't know about poly coated bullets, but I have had good luck with plated bullets (berry brand) for reloading.

    Polymer Bullets

    Did a fire inspection on a business that makes projectiles for 20mm cannons once. They gave me a projectile that was a Tungsten cored plastic bullet with a thin Aluminum base. The plastic was super heavy duty stuff like a Pelican case, and the base was only a thin bit of anodized aluminum. I was told that the plastic rode the bore and fouling was cleaned by the soft Aluminum disc and the light weight made for a much faster velocity. On impct the Tungsten did all the work. I lost the projectile a few years ago, but if it worked in a super fast 20mm, Why not in a 9mm?

    Oh, BTW for those tht dislike CCI Blazer I was told the cases were Aluminum and were made at a different facility for 20mm, 25mm and 30mm (think A10 aircraft cannon). If it can work in something that hot...

    I wont use reloads for defense , IMHO its just a matter of time tho till we see " Nyclad " again and it was some nasty stuff for its time .
    Make sure you get full value out of today , Do something worthwhile, because what you do today will cost you one day off the rest of your life .
