FederalPremium.comANOKA, Minn. -(Ammoland.com)- Federal Ammunition is pleased to announce it is now offering popular American Eagle Syntech Total Synthetic Jacket (TSJ) bullets as components for handloading, allowing both competitive and casual shooters to load Syntech to their own specifications and pressures.

The competitively priced component bullets are available in three popular handgun caliber options. Shipments are being delivered to dealers.

With an exclusive TSJ polymer jacket that eliminates copper fouling and decreases heat and friction, Syntech loads have redefined the range ammunition category.

Now handloaders can get the benefits of the same groundbreaking design in Syntech component bullets. The advanced range projectiles provide clean, accurate, consistent performance, as well as less splash-back on steel targets.

  • Polymer-encapsulated Syntech bullet prevents metal-on-metal contact in the bore
  • Eliminates copper and lead fouling
  • Decreases heat and friction, extending barrel life
  • Significantly reduces the required frequency of cleaning
  • Absence of a copper jacket minimizes splash-back on steel targets
  • 100-count packs

Part No. / Description / MSRP:

  • AE9SJCB1 / 9mm, .355” 115-grain Syntech, 100-count / $16.95

    Bob its been awhile but maybe you look back on occasion. I was curious if you ever determined the cause. Almost sounds like a sqib load, as if the previous shot did not clear the barrel. Bolt destroyed or barrel split? . .22 do not hold allot of powder. no more than 2 grains. I bought my last center fire cartridge in 1978. I moved to RWS, and then also Eleys and Lapua for rim fire.

    I have no real faith in federal ammo myself. Reload several cals and their factory ammo is often weak power loads. I had an entire lot bought that had un-burnt powder spill.

Federal is just entering an… Read more »

    David,
    I don’t get it either. Reloaders have had access to polymer coated bullets for a while now and they have always been at the bottom end of the price range. When Federal came out with their Syntech ammo I thought “Cool, a new, cheap ammo option” until I saw what they were asking for it. I guess it is Federal’s “super-special-premium” polymer coating.

    So what kind of fouling does IT cause? Polymer fouling that is a real PITA to get out.

    Why so much. I have been buying polymer coated bullets for $11.00 per hundred in 45 ACP 230 gr.round nose
