Speer Bullets expands its reloading supplies, adding .224 and .308 caliber bullets to its Total Metal Jacket series.
The new offerings feature a 55-grain .224 cal as well as a 150-grain .308 cal TMJ rifle bullet. The TMJ series offers a seamless jacket, fully encasing the bullet’s lead core. Speer says this construction delivers better accuracy and performance.
“Standard FMJ bullets sacrifice accuracy by adding a separate piece of jacket to cover the bullet base—or leave exposed lead. Speer TMJ bullets, however, totally encapsulate the lead core for cleaner, more accurate performance,” Speer said in a press release.
The TMJ bullets reduce fouling as well as airborne lead with their design and ship 100 to a pack. Speer says the bullets, created for reloaders, are available now and are shipping to retailers and dealers. The .224 cal retails for $16.95 while its .308 sibling is priced a little higher at $21.95.
