Sellier & Bellot pistol ammunition in 9mm (9x19 and 9x21)

Sellier & Bellot's NONTOX series pistol ammunition reduces the health burden on shooters and supervisors on the shooting range. S&B uses brass cases for the manufacturing of these pistol cartridges. The NONTOX primers work with an environmentally friendly detonator mixture. The TFMJ projectiles reduce the lead evaporation after the shot through a copper cap.

In the segment of rifle cartridges there is a very interesting innovation from Sellier & Bellot: Screen Ammo for shooting cinemas

Sellier & Bellot Screen-Ammo
Screen-Ammo: the core of the bullet is made from zinc, granting that there is also no vaporization of heavy metals into the air.

Sceen-Ammo has been especially designed for the use in modern shooting cinemas. These cartridges are also equipped with a unique NONTOX primer without any heavy metal emissions. Use of this special ammo does not harm the shooter’s health nor pollute the environment. The core of the bullet is made from zinc, granting that there is also no vaporization of heavy metals into the air. Additionally the bullet is nickel plated, to reduce friction in the barrel.

Muzzle velocity of this special ammo has been decreased to reduce recoil. That’s good for intense training sessions in a shooting cinema, especially for beginners and women. Compared to standard hunting ammunition, the mean point of impact – when shooting at short distances – remains unchanged. The advantage: there is no need to adjust your riflescope in the shooting cinema when using this special ammunition for your training.
