Lead free ammunition is becoming popular. Or at least popular with manufactures.
Earlier this week Fiocchi announced the addition of .40 S&W to their range of SinterFire non-toxic (lead free) frangible. The product is aimed at the training market, especially law enforcement.
From the press release:
Fiocchi’s innovative .40 caliber SinterFire non-toxic round is also the fastest in the manufacturer’s entire .40 caliber product line. Comprehensive ballistic testing has revealed that when fired from a 5-inch test barrel, Fiocchi’s hot, new round produces a sizzling 1,265 fps muzzle velocity due to its lightweight 125-grain bullet. With more than 130-year reputation resting on each round, Fiocchi strives to achieve ammunition perfection with every round it produces.
