.223 rem from TZZ


#1

This .223 rem round from TZZ has a non magnetic truncated projectile. Does anyone know anything about it’s use? It could be a frangible…?

It is a SR training round based on a French design, but it was used by Israel as an anti-riot round in the early 1990s.

Also thanks to JP and Jon, I love it when answers falling together…

Jon C.,

I heard that this was only used for “riot control” for a short period of time because it was discovered to be lethal at close range. Can you provide us with the whole story, as there seems to be a lot of misinformation floating around the 'net about what the loads are, who used them and in what capacity.

Quick answer, as I’m watching the Yankees lose!!! Yay!!! Go Redsox!!!

They were a SR round that was issued to officers (only 6 rounds per platoon) who had received special instruction on how to use them non-lethally. Apparently they were not effective (or too effective) and removed from service.
