ACME Bullet Company manufactures the 45 ACP 175 SWC-NLG Hi Tek Coated bullet. This new design is a non-lube groove that increases the engagement of the rifling during the firing process. This bullet is a favorite for 25 yard rapid target shooting for the reduced recoil.
The hard cast bullet is cast with 92-6-2 certified alloy, then coated with the Hi-Tek coating and heat cured to anneal to the lead alloy. This process is done 3 times to ensure a consistent bond. After the bullets are coated they are then sized to .452 for final product.
The benefits to shooting with the Hi-Tek line are: The bullet is completely encapsulated therefore reducing the exposure to bare lead. Less smoke as associated with traditional lubed bullets. Can shoot higher velocities than regular cast bullets. Safe in Polygonal rifling.
This is not loaded ammunition.
