nP Technology 100% Lead-Free Frangible Projectiles & Ammunition

With increasing pressure on hunters and sportsmen alike, lead-free ammunition is starting to become more popular; however, lead-free ammunition still has many drawbacks with the first one being its price. Secondly, lead-free ammunition can still rebound off of steel targets during close-range training causing injury to shooters and/or bystanders. nP Technology has set out to solve both of those problems for both the Civilian and Military markets with their 100% lead-free projectiles and ammunition.

nP Technology 100% Lead-Free Frangible Projectiles & Ammunition

Our innovative lead free nanomaterial composite materials combined with the production advantages of the molding process allows us to develop and produce superior quality projectiles.

The nP Technology projectile delivers unsurpassed quality that extends the life of your steel, your barrels and your range. This is also an ideal projectile for Bowling Pin Matches.

Accuracy and energy on target are not compromised. Our projectiles provide genuine “train with what you carry” experience. Shooters can hit targets out to distance or up close without configuration changes.

During a demonstration, I was able to participate in I saw not only handgun calibers being used at extremely close range, but also rifle calibers as well. What is even more impressive is that nP Technology has been able to scale their projectiles all the way up to a 1095 grain 50 BMG bullet that is both capable of surviving launch from the barrel and still avoiding any projectile splashback.

nP Technology has projectiles in many grain weights for 9mm, 380 ACP, 40 S&W, 45 ACP, 5.56/.223, .308/7.62mm, .50/12.7 MM, and even buckshot. All of the ammo is frangible and lead-free so even reloaders in the ever more restrictive European union, which is attempting to outright ban lead ammunition, can look to reload.

I spoke to Managing Director Robert Folaron about the pricing on their projectiles and with large enough order numbers, Robert says their projectiles can bring production costs of completely lead-free ammunition down to within 15% of commonly available lead ammunition. This means that departments who want or need frangible ammunition for close-range training could more easily switch to the safer less environmentally harmful ammunition more easily. With lead-free ammo, we can keep our wetlands, prairies, forests, and hunting grounds cleaner for generations to come.
