The brand name SinterFire is almost synonymous with frangible ammunition. Well known around the globe for their lead-free frangible projectiles, SinterFire normally caters directly to the Military and Law Enforcement sectors and their suppliers. For the last 24 years, SinterFire has supplied government and military customers with their ammunition with pride but is now excited to offer their ammunition to commercial customers through their network of distributors.

SinterFire Military and LE Ammunition Now Available for Commercial Sale
So what’s available to you now as a customer? SinterFire offers several different lines of ammunition that are all lead-free but they have a couple of different lines that offer the end-user a few choices when it comes to feature sets. Their RHA (Reduced Hazard Ammo) features a lead-free projectile, standard primer, and is intended for casual range use or training. The GL (GreenLine) features both a lead-free projectile and lead-free primer and has the same uses but offers a less toxic shooting experience. The SD or Special Duty ammo features a lead-free frangible hollow point projectile and standard primer, and these are used for self-defense. Finally, their NXG or Next Generation ammunition features a monolithic copper projectile (non-frangible), standard primer, and is a direct replacement for standard ball ammunition that is used for indoor or outdoor training where the risk of ricochets is minimal.
Comprised of blended copper powder, the projectiles outperform other hollow points due to the engineered frangibility characteristics. Extremely effective when entering soft tissue, the projectile dissipates energy immediately for a large initial wound cavity. The base of the projectile retains much of its initial form for deep penetration. All this, while the ricochet risk is drastically reduced. As a result, it is the only bullet approved by Texas Commission on Law Enforcement School Marshals program.
SinterFire ammunition will be made available soon through distributors like Sports South and Kinseys.

Their product lineup seems quite interesting so I’d love to hear if any of you can attest to its quality and performance.
