Saw a Box of 9x19 Luger federal brand traing ammo. FMJ (Sorry but dont recall id 124 or 147 grain) FMJ Purple Polymer coated bullets. Its on hold for me. Something about the PAwn shop had to hold twoi weeks before being able to seel any of lot of stuff they had “Bought” in case previous owner came back. I will pick up late but I had not ssen purpel polymer vs Red polymer coated buletrs on Federal ammo before. Box doesnt look that old so wonmdering why purple vs red which I already have! Any thoughts? special order maybe? box had no indication!
Check this post.
I do not know if they made 9mm…
on the link is the case is purple ,not the bullet
and the brand is winchester ,not federal
if i understand the first post ,the cartridges look normal but the bullet is polymer coated ,like federal nyclad ?

Thanks bdgreen and ammogun! I had to run, and just saw purple!
but the two brands had similar point ,the “training line”
Thx for replys. It makes more sense now.
Update I picked up the box of Purple Syntech and it turns out its 147 Grain Training ammo vs 124grain ! projectiles are flat tipped. box otherwise looks like the purple boxes above. thx for sharing!
