Police officers have a dangerous enough job as it is. (We only think sitting at a computer all day stinks because we never had to face down a tweaker holding a pair of fabric scissors.) Training at the pistol range shouldn’t makes things even harder for cops. Speer creates their 357 Sig Lawman ammunition so cops – and everyone else, for that matter – can tone up their aim more safely!
This round’s 100 grain bullet is made out of sintered tin and copper powders instead of more conventional solid lead and copper. When a frangible bullet thumps into a steel target, concrete barrier, or even a rock concealed beyond an outdoor range’s backdrop it will shatter apart into harmless powder. That pretty much does away with the chance of splash-back or a nasty ricochet ending your training session too early.
This round’s Reduced Hazard Training projectile is lead-free, as is its Clean-Fire primer. This means neither the heat of ignition nor the force of impact will produce toxic airborne particles, making this round even safer still for training at indoor ranges.
A frangible bullet is a whole lot lighter without any lead to weigh it down, so this cartridge offers an accordingly zippy 1,450 fps muzzle velocity out of a 4” barrel. Its ballistic coefficient is unusually high for a 357 Sig – 0.121, which carries with it a very flat trajectory. Speer makes this dedicated range training round easy to recognize with its distinctively marked bullet, and loads it with their usual clean burning propellant.
Please note: 357 Sig is not the same as 357 Magnum. This ammo will not work in 357 Magnum firearms.
