Gilded Metal Jacket, just a different process used be the manufacture to coat the bullet. For all intents and purposes basically the same as FMJ
Pretty sure that's a typo. This is FMJ ammo.
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.
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.
This is FMJ. The website is mistaken. It says "FMJ" on the box.
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.
The box actually says FMJ. GMJ appears nowhere on the box. The box and this item have identical Walmart numbers and serial numbers.

Guilded Metal Jacket. No idea what (if ANY) difference there is from FMJ.

GMJ stands for Gilded metal jacket. The jacket around the ball is not pure copper. It will contain about 95% copper and 5% zinc or another filler metal.
