CMP EIC Clarification on Jacketed Bullet Rule

Post by Rob Kovach on Wed Jan 07, 2015 11:38 am

I received a clarification already.  I sent the CMP this photo of 2 different "jacketed" bullets--one a Nosler 185Gr JHP that isn't jacketed on the tip and the other a ZERO 230gr FMJ that isn't jacketed on the base.

Here's the photo:

And here's CMP's response:

Rob,

Both styles of jacketed projectiles are acceptable under 6.6.2 Pistol Ammunition.

Clever way of posing the question.

I wish I could figure out how to post this picture. I will just share the link and someone younger can post maybe? The title says " 200gr full metal jacket combat target" This is the bullet I would like to see if it is legal. Doesn't say anything about being a WC.

that is a semi wad cutter bullet, there are no true wad cutters for the 45, mostly see them in 32 and 38. this is what a wad cutter bullet looks like

  I know it is a SWC and you know it is a SWC. My question was really to the CMP. Do they know it is a SWC and not a true wad cutter and will they be allowed? I picked that bullet because it doesn't have wad cutter anywhere in its title "noun nomenclature".

Master, yes it will be legal.  SWC isn't the "issue", JACKETED is the requirement.  The Hornady bullet you referenced is a jacketed bullet and would therefore be legal under the new rules.

I don't get it.  Why are they making an issue over jacketed bullets?  What's wrong with non-jacketed bullets as it relates to the competition?  Is it just an arbitrary decision?

6.6.2.....

Service Pistol. Service Pistol competitors may use any safe ammunition



that is loaded with metal-jacketed bullets. Non-jacketed, wad-cutter or



lead bullets may not be used.













From this I read that JRN, JHP, JSWC, JTC, all would be legal









Also I read:



Illegal - lead anything, plated anything, full WC anything







Am  right!

Reading the rules at first glance and not over thinking it.
Allowed is jacketed ammo in either full metal jacket, jacketed hollow point and jacketed semi wad cutter(button nosed to some).

they just are trying to keep the playing field a little more level because polygonal barreled guns like glocks are not recommended to be used with lead bullets. And long time tradition of cmp requiring fmj ammo, but the rules say any jacketed bullet, they only rule out bullets of any type in lead the way I read it
