FEDERAL AMERICAN EAGLE ANNOUNCES REVOLUTIONARY SYNTECH AMMO
Federal Ammunition is pleased to announce a whole new concept for range ammunition with introduction of American Eagle Syntech: A smoother way to shoot. Shipments of this new product are now being delivered to dealers. American Eagle Syntech is the first range-specific ammunition designed to reduce fouling and extend barrel life with a high-tech polymer bullet coating. Combined with specialized clean-burning powders, your gun will stay cleaner, longer, so you can shoot more—and shoot better. The exclusive Catalyst™ primer provides the most reliable, consistent ignition possible. The Syntech system offers target shooters the most advanced range ammunition available and the perfect way for handgun owners to protect their investment from the inside out. The features and benefits include the polymer-encapsulated Syntech bullet that prevents metal-on-metal contact in the bore, eliminating copper and lead fouling, while extending barrel life as well as an exclusive primer formulation that provides reliable, consistent ignition. Clean-burning propellants also minimize residue and fouling which significantly reduces the required frequency of firearm cleaning. The absence of a copper jacket minimizes splash-back on steel targets, making it perfect for target practice or competition. The new rounds also have less perceived recoil. The American Eagle ammunition is available in 9mm Luger 115 grain, 40 S&W 165 grain and .45 Auto 230 grain. Contact them at www.federalpremium.com.
