Team Never Quit (TNQ)’s Training line has been created to provide a lead-free projectile to traditional ammunition. This provides not only a Green solution to training, but is specially designed for dynamic training on steel targets to minimize the environmental hazards associated with the by-products of lead bullets. It is ideal for close quarter training as it eliminates the splash-back and ricochets that are typical of lead bulleted ammunition.
TNQ’s Training line utilizes a SinterFire® bullet designed to break up into small pieces upon impact with hardened steel or other materials that are harder than the projectile itself. The projectile is not jacketed or plated. The copper/tin material is non-hazardous and recyclable which allows for less expensive range operations. The consistent uniformity of the SinterFire® projectile gives TNQs Training line exceptional accuracy, reliable functioning, and the same felt recoil as traditional ammunition.
Frangible ammunition performs just like traditional ammunition and possesses the ability to cause injury or death if deliberately or accidentally misused. Extremely shallow angle impact against hard targets may not provide sufficient resistance to force complete bullet breakup and may result in larger particles ricocheting. Appropriate protective gear must be worn by shooters and bystanders.
In order to have reliable bullet penetration and/or breakup the user is advised to conduct controlled testing prior to full scale use. Higher or lower velocities due to unusual barrel lengths, soft target materials or untested materials can produce unpredictable results
