Why Ecomass Material Is Right Choice For Frangible Bullets?

Posted by Michael Luis on March 13th, 2022

If you practice shooting, then you are already using self-destructive bullets. These types are mainly frangible. At present time, you find these bullets being used widely in all types of self-defense tools. These are also modern bullets.

When armed forces need to offer practice rounds to their recruits, then these bullets are safer options. Shooting clubs often recommend using Frangible bullets during the practice rounds.

•    The bullets are rated as more effective forms of pro-active tools
•    They are safe as the bullets would self destruct on their own during impact
•    It is also safe for the environment

There are many benefits of using Eco mass material for manufacturing these types of bullets and ammunition. Some unique benefits you can go through are below in the content.


The first advantage of using frangible ammunition is that they are more cost-effective as compared to original lead-based ammunition. Lead is a rare earth metal. It is very expensive to mine lead.

But as compared to lead, eco mass is much cheaper. It can easily be prepared in polymer industries. This is one reason why frangible ammunition is more cost-effective.

Safety reasons

If you are only concerned about target practice rounds then you want to use ammunitions that are safe to use. During the target practice rounds, you may not want anyone to get injured.

Lead in no way can be safe. It is tough and has the strength to pierce any metal sheet. So it cannot be used for practice rounds. Eco mass material is made up of quality polymer material. So it is safe.

Self-destructive capacity

Lead may not get self-destructed on its own. it will simply pierce on impact. To practice safe target shooting activity you may have to wear bulletproof jackets and gear.

Frangible ammunition is a self-destructive type. So on the mild impact, the bullet may only break into smaller pieces. The pieces do not pierce inside the target.

Easy availability

Lead bullets are not easily available. It is also not easy to reuse the bullets once they have been fired. Retaining the bullet is not an easy task.

Eco mass material is used to make frangible ammunition. You will come across many dealers that sell quality frangible ammunition. These are high gravity compounds and are easily available. You can purchase these types of bullets as they do not pose any serious threat.


Lead on burning will produce toxins. If inhaled, it can pose a serious threat to your health as well. So it is not safe to use lead bullets very often. This is why Ecomass material is the best option.

It is presently considered the best lead substitute. It replaces lead for making durable frangible ammunition. It is also safe for the ecosystem as it does not produce any toxins. This is one of the reasons why these ammunitions are mainly recommended for indoors and outdoors target practice.

It is always advisable to practice target shooting rounds only under the supervision of a professional trainer. Even if safe, frangible ammunition can be dangerous to use.
