155gr Frangible @ 1155fps too much for WB?

Would these rounds be outside safety parameters for the game?

Too light, too fast, not lead only.

Maximum velocity for Wild Bunch rifle ammo is (as in cowboy) 1400 FPS.  As others have said, bullet weight and material must also be compliant.

 

A friend attended a recent event sponsored by Palmetto State Armory that showcased some new products, including a lead free composite bullet that can be used on steel targets at close range.  I ended up calling a company rep to talk about the product.  Most of their bullets are powdered copper in polymer; not legal under current SASS rules but maybe an option for the future.

 

The use of copper makes the bullets lighter than usual.  They have some heavy bullets that contain tungsten but they are very dear.

Lots of recycling of lead bullets is done on some SASS ranges.   Copper, zinc, aluminum and other metals that dissolve in lead alloys are not conducive to reclaiming the lead cheaply.

 

Cost of frangible ammo is usually much higher than lead bullet loads, too.

 

So, not only against rules, but costly and non-recyclable too.

 

good luck, GJ

•Pistol and rifle ammunition may not be jacketed, semi-jacketed, plated, gas checked, or copper washed. It must be all lead

. Molydisulfide coated bullets, polymer coated bullets, or equivalent are acceptable.

•Pistol and rifle ammunition must be of “single projectile” design. “Multiple projectile” bullets are illegal.

•Pistol and rifle ammunition must have a minimum bullet weight of 180gr (11.66 grams).
