Question:Is this a copper jacketed steel core bullet or a bi-metal jacketed lead core bullet? The information in the “questions & answers” section is confusing.
Response:This is the original US Military Lake City XM80 projectiles firing at 2700 fps. This is identical to the ammo issued to the US military.
