How it’s made: Sinter Fire bullets

Posted May 16, 2014 by muzzlevelocity in Ammunition

Among the growing number of small manufacturers producing lead-free projectiles, Sinter Fire of Kersey, PA is undoubtedly noteworthy. The company’s bullets (available in a variety of common calibers) consist of compressed metal powder and disintegrate into dust when they impact a hard surface, but are still capable of producing an impressive wound channel in tissue.

Applications include any situation where ricochet and over penetration are a concern such as close range engagement of metal targets, urban and suburban wildlife control, and countless law enforcement and personal defense scenarios.

This 10-ish minute video produced by the company gives an overview of the production process for Sinter Fire projectiles and includes some pretty cool high speed footage of the bullets turning into a dust cloud on impact with metal targets. Bullet technology has made amazing leaps and bounds in the last 20 years.
