- Q & A
This 223 Rem round by Speer is made for law enforcement professionals. (Not a law enforcement professional? Don’t worry, you can still order this ammo without law enforcement professionals coming to bother you.) Its 55 grain Reduced Hazard Training bullet is made by SinterFire, which means it is frangible. Instead of bursting into dangerous flecks of solid lead and copper upon impact with a hard surface, this bullet disintegrates into copper and tin particles. If you’re slapping tin or firing against a rocky backdrop, a frangible bullet is a WHOLE lot safer in the long run.
This ammo also makes indoor shooting safer. Its lead-free bullet won’t scatter toxic particles into the air where they’ll inevitably make their way into your lungs, and its CCI Clean-Fire primer contains no lead, antimony or barium. They’re all set in a reloadable brass case and waiting to help you safely work on your aim!

- will this work in a smith wesson MP15 sport 223/556? ok for self defense? Posted On: 9/4/2020 By: BENNY WALDEN
- Hi Benny! This ammo should function fine in your M&P Sport. Frangible ammo is most often used for safer training with steel targets. That said, this ammo is perfectly capable of neutralizing a threat as well. It's not designed for terminal expansion, but on the plus side a frangible bullet has a lower chance of penetrating multiple walls. That could prove of value for home defense when you'd want to avert jeopardizing innocent bystanders.
