polymer or powder coated bullets
« on: March 10, 2014, 10:58:15 AM »
Some questions have come up about polymer or powder coated bullets. The Wild Bunch have declared them LEGAL for all sports under the SASS umbrella. Therefore they are LEGAL for WBAS competition. They STRONGLY discourage copper colored coatings.

This is great news. The Herters Blazer aluminum case blue plastic coated projectile 45 ACPs are a great round. I really love them a ton.

And the berdan primed non reloadable cases don't have to be shagged.

I don't know any range that really loves to have aluminum cases littering their facility.  And, sure, there is a little scrap value on those cases, so someone probably would want to take them.   But, our local ranges would want them picked up - we'd just shag and bag while the match was going on.  

Good luck, GJ

Of course if they were shagged and returned to me along with the rifle cases and sg hulls then surely I would put them in the mesh empty bag hanging off the cart. They make good key chain fobs and necklaces.
