Federal Premium Ammunition is expanding its American Eagle ammo line with the release of its all-new polymer-encapsulated Syntech bullet for 2016. As the product announcement notes, conventional ammo causes metal-on-metal contact between the bullet and bore, which shortens barrel life and can negatively affect accuracy. The Syntech bullet prevents this while also eliminating copper and lead fouling. When combined with specialized clean-burning powders, your weapon will stay cleaner for a longer amount of time, enabling you to shoot more and shoot better. In addition, the Catalyst primer provides a reliable, consistent ignition. See below for a rundown of features and pricing.
