    TECHNOLOGY
    With lower velocities and projectile weight, the Civilian Target Ammunition (CTA) is designed for complete safety and reliability, bringing target practice with your weapon to a whole new level – without the need for a range and free from live fire restrictions. The CTA utilizes the same core technology the U.S. Military, Special Forces and Law Enforcement Agencies have been using in their operational weapons during training for nearly a decade.
    • Plastic projectile weighs less than 1 gram
    • Average velocity of 375 fps at the muzzle

    • No Need for Hearing Protection – 113db
    • No Gunpowder – primer actuated systems
    • UNIQUE patented, proprietary and exclusive dual primer system and projectile driving band system.
    • The UTM RBT Civilian Target Ammunition (CTA) Conversion WILL NOT fire standard .223/5.56mm live rounds because of its offset firing pin design

    UTM is clearly very enthusiastic about this introduction, but I wonder how much success the new product will achieve. At $0.60 a round, most civilians will find, I think, that normal target practice is cheaper.

    It does, however put more realistic threat simulations and experiments within reach of casual hobbyists, opening the door to a whole new kind of YouTube gun channel.
