This is non-toxic, lead free, reduced hazard frangible 9mm ammo. These rounds are loaded with bullets that disintegrate upon contact with a hard surface, essentially turning the projectile into sand. These rounds are ideal for close quarter training because the risk of ricochet is minimized with the frangible projectile.
