Federal Ammunition expands its Syntech handgun ammunition, adding a 9mm Luger load to the series.
The ammunition, which won the 2017 NRA Golden Bullseye Award, utilizes a polymer encapsulated Syntech bullet which eliminates metal-on-metal contact between bullet and bore. This design not only increases overall barrel life of the handgun but also aides in improving accuracy over time.

“Conventional ammunition causes metal-on-metal contact between the bullet and bore, which can shorten barrel life and hurt accuracy. The polymer-encapsulated Syntech bullet prevents this, while eliminating copper and lead fouling,” Federal Ammunition said in a news release. “Combined with clean-burning powders, your gun will stay cleaner, longer, so you can shoot more—and shoot better.”
The series features clean-burning powders which prevent build-up on guns, staying cleaner longer. To top it off, the Syntech line boasts the exclusive Catalyst primer, which offers a clean, consistent ignition. All in all, Federal says the Syntech lineup delivers less perceived recoil and “significantly reduces” the frequency of gun cleaning.
The 9mm offering joins the series which already boasts loads in .40 S&W and .45 ACP. The 9mm Luger load is currently on its way to dealers with a MSRP just under $20.
We got in two of our best-selling Turkish imports from Landor Arms – the AR-style LND-117 shotgun and the bullpup BPX 902 – to give them a whirl on the range and see if the reliability could be paired with the affordable price.
Marlin once claimed their Model 39 as the eldest continually produced, shoulder-fired rifle of all time. Though that record ended when the Marlin brand was parted-off to Ruger, the rimfire world is anticipating a return of this classic.
