Greenshield are truly frangible, lead-free, full-energy training ammunition, designed to reduce health and safety hazards by eliminating exposure to lead and other heavy metals. The bullets are composed of a patented, copper-tin-polymer compound and do not require a jacket, so splash back and ricochet dangers are virtually eliminated – the projectiles disintegrate into powder upon impact with a hard surface (steel target or backstop material). Greenshield frangible cartridges deliver equivalent accuracy and ballistic match with service ammunition out to tactical ranges, and function without any weapon modifications. The environmentally friendly rounds generate similar recoil and noise levels to duty ammunition and are available in 9mm caliber for training on indoor and outdoor ranges as well as in MOUT and FIBUA environments.
