I have never seen or heard of this, it was on the front cover of my Handguns magazine. I have to see how much this is

So the advantage seems to be cleaner burning reducing lead fouling etc? Not a bad idea but at a cost of nearly twice what I pay for the cheap stuff? I think I'll just keep cleaning my guns which I enjoy anyway. Besides, my wife would think it is lipstick.

The best way to avoid lead fouling in your barrel is to not shoot lead bullets, simply stick with plated ammo.

I think it's a cool idea, but only at a price point lower than copper plated rounds. You think polymer guns would have exploded like they did if they were more than a 1911? Using polymer has to make their process cheaper right?

I'm thinking the market targeted might be for some marathon competition shooters or extended day of training exercises. I can see where they might be an advantage with a very large amount of rounds in a day. Common practice for me might be 100 shots a session. Since I take several guns to the range I wouldn't have time to shoot more out of each most of the time.
I bet if there is a large market for them that it won't be long before some other competitors jumps on that band wagon and likely the price will drop.
