    Fmj / Tmj ?

    I've been buying my 9mm ammo (Leller & Bellot) from Sportsmanguide. They are out of the FMJ I have been buying, but have another brand (Lawman) TMJ.

    What is the difference between full metal jacket and total metal jacket?

    Full Metal Jacket (FMJ) does not coat the base of the bullet.

    Total Metal Jacket (TMJ) coats the entire bullet including the base.

    Thanks, but still confused. The FMJ's from end to end are the same color, the TMJ the projectile part is a different color.

    Just the coating that they use. S&B is Czech and they use a coating that gives the cartridge a uniform color. You'll also notice that S&B has red around the primer and the bullet seating area.

    If you look at Remington or most US manufactured ammo you will find that the bullet is a different color than the cartridge case.
