answer 1
Target, GMJ is pretty much the same as FMJ. You'll want hollow points for self defense
answered 1 year, 2 months ago

RebelVet88
answer 2
Do some research on how FMJ (full medal jacket) and HP (hollow points works). This is FMJ which is typically recommended for the range (not self defense). HP is recommended for self defense because the round will expand inside the target, dissipating force and slowing down the projectile (which equates to "stopping power" and theoretically reduces the likelihood that the round will pass through the target at high velocity and injure or kill an innocent by-standard behind your target). Most people carry hollow point ammunition for self defense. Walmart sells Winchester PDX1 Defender ammo (comes in a black box) check that out for your self-defense / carry rounds.

It should probably just be used for target. This is not super high quality stuff but works great for target/plinking, especially for how dirt cheap it is!

answer 5
It's better for target ammo. For self defense, you want a hollow point or something similar for maximum bodily damage AND less over-penetration through walls/etc. FMJ ammo is not considered ideal for stopping an attacker.

answer 8
This ammo is for target use only, if you used this ammo for self defense the bullet would do less damage to the target and would shoot clean thru into the next wall then thru somebody else potentially that's why you want to use hollow points so they stop inside the target and do maximum damage.

Great rounds though for practice!

answer 3
This is my understanding. GMJ (guilded metal jacket) is mainly a marketing thing so it sounds different than regular ammunition. Some manufacturers have special, super secret, hush hush proprietary methods of bonding the bullet jacket to the core to prevent separation, and they call it guilding. I believe it has to do with the copper content of the jacket. Instead of pure copper, there's some zinc in there, i believe. I think FMJs are pure copper. It should pretty much look like and perform like FMJ.

answer 4
The differance is the whole bullet is encased in FMJ full metal jacket and gmjsome call guilded but it is graduated which is the end of the bullet is not covered making the round less stable to penetrate,for which FMJ is mage for armor penetration or thick hide/materials without loseing its form and holding together better.Hollow points are for protection and close range as they expand upon leaving the barrel and mushroom for a tearing guoging type hole,which you will find in golden sabres by remington called cehp or chp ,cutting edge or cutting hollow point.Best made for protection unless your oponet/enemy has a vest then FMJ gets it done,depending on the round size.

answer 6
gilded metal jacket (GMJ) is basically the same as full metal jacket (FMJ) in that it provides a metal casing on a bullet core. The difference in the two metal jackets is the method of application. The full metal jacket (FMJ) is a casing that is applied to the core while the gilded metal jacket (GMJ) is plated directly on the core. For all intents and purposes, the GMJ rounds perform the same as FMJ rounds, but are less costly to manufacture, and therefore cost less to buy.

It says FMJ on the box. The 1200 rounds that I've used between my Glock & XDm have worked GREAT. No jams or problems. It is a little dirty on the ends of both barrels but most brands are with that many rounds going through.

The item title is GMJ, but the box actually says "115 Grain FMJ RN." I compared the Walmart number and the serial number of my box to the ones listed above in the product description. So it appears these are actually FMJ. The only warning on the box in regards to which weapons it's safe for: "Do not use in firearms with ported barrels or ported recoil compensators." Hope this helps.

Yes. Unless the range requires frangible, lead free rounds (which a select few ranges with poor ventilation do). Also, most indoor tactical shooting classes will require frangible, lead free rounds as you're not always shooting from the firing line (where the vents are). Double check with your local range though. Ask if they allow FMJ (Full medal jacket) ammo. 99% will say yes.

Most indoor ranges will let you shoot anything that is not steel cased ie wolf and other eastern block countries, the usually will not let you shot it in there rental guns because they say it voids some mythical insurance something or other, they just want you to buy there ammo. the federal ammo is good for all guns that is chambered for, and the ranges around me still want to make sure that i am usuing factory ammo
