Frangible reloads

Post by Sojurn » 01 May 2022, 07:16

Hi all, new FsN owner and new to the forum. Not new to reloading though.
I'm loving the pistol so far, but I find that I'd like to be able to shoot steel up close with it. We had a class yesterday and I'm just not comfortable shooting AE rounds at regular 9mm distances.
So here's my question. Is there a good frangible bullet people are using (that's currently available), and is there any data for it?
I looked through the forum but couldn't find anything, lots of good info, just not on currently available frangibles specially.

Welcome to the forum! I think “readily available” components, in general, is a misnomer in this country at this time. Frangible’s will likely be copper monolithics which will be pricey relatively speaking and hit or miss with regard to availability . I think the low qty (50pcs) and price will make for some very expensive shooting. 😎

I've never used them but there are places selling it, I googled "frangible 223 bullets" & it showed loaded ammo & bullets for reloading.
I don't think there's any load data on the forum for them either, pretty special niche.

I checked there but didn't see where you could place an order, do you just email & ask?

Yes they normally only supply commercial accounts, but with all the covd BS who knows if they have anything.

Let me know what they say. I might have a few hundred I can sell you.
