9x19mm "IVI 9mm Luger"

I was sieving through a lot of pistol ammo (major storm outside, sorry, no sun, bad photos) and these 2 caught my eye. Is there anything special about these projectiles?

Vlad - it is hard to tell from the picture, but the color tone I am seeing would say to me that these are composite frangible bullets. This would not at all be inconsistent with the IVI headstamps, as that company has loaded Frangible rounds, in this caliber, in several variations.

Ammogun is correct about the brand of this ammunition. It was made under the Green Shield brand by Simunition Division of SNC Industrial Technologies Inc., of Ottawa, Canada. Below are pictures of two different Greenshield boxes for Frangible Lead-Free Traijing cartridges. Both contain cartridges with the same style of bullet. The top box, black and green, is for the cartridges in question here. The bottom box is marked on the end tab β€œFOR MP5 ONLY,” and the cartridges are loaded in " + IVI 92 " cases (the β€œ+” represents the NATO symbol).

No bullet weight is given on either box.
