Anoka, MN -(AmmoLand.com)- Federal Ammunition is pleased to announce a whole new concept for range ammunition with introduction of American Eagle Syntech: A smoother way to shoot. Shipments of this new product are now being delivered to dealers.
American Eagle Syntech is the first range-specific ammunition designed to reduce fouling and extend barrel life with a high-tech polymer bullet coating. Combined with specialized clean-burning powders, your gun will stay cleaner, longer, so you can shoot more—and shoot better. The exclusive Catalyst primer provides the most reliable, consistent ignition possible.
The Syntech system offers target shooters the most advanced range ammunition available and the perfect way for handgun owners to protect their investment from the inside out.
Features & Benefits:
- Polymer-encapsulated Syntech bullet prevents metal-on-metal contact in the bore, eliminating copper and lead fouling, while extending barrel life
- Exclusive primer formulation provides reliable, consistent ignition
- Clean-burning propellants minimize residue and fouling
- Significantly reduces the required frequency of cleaning
- Absence of a copper jacket minimizes splash-back on steel targets, perfect for target practice or competition
- Less perceived recoil

for 9mm Can I use it for self defense? I mean to causing enough pain without kill?
Not me!!! I’ve read and heard from too many shooters about this stuff really screwing up barrels. It’s PLASTIC for cripes sake and you’re igniting a small rocket charge behind it, sorry I don’t want plastic shavings or melted plastic in my barrels. I’ve spent WAY too much on my firearms.
Besides, I can buy good defensive ammo for the price of two boxes of this maybe even only one box of this if I catch a sale price. Personally I’ll stick with REAL ammo.
I was told by the management of my indoor range that polymer coated handgun ammunition cannot be used (and they check your ammo before shooting). They claim that the polymer coating melts upon firing and sticks to the backstop making lead cleanup/recycling more difficult. Not sure about the claim but I have to abide by their rules.
AND they are twice the price of standard ammunition. I will stick with regular ammo AND twice the amount of shooting for the same price ! Oh, and still clean the gun that I would firing EITHER. More “gimmick” ammo…
They may have issue with the clean up. Where I shoot we paint the steel after each stage shot with white paint; but don’t clean the plates. They are expensive too.
