These MEN bullets are quite a matt flat grey colour, almost bluish which I would associate with tin but who am I to say? . The nickel bullets I have encountered have been shinier and warmer in hue. Will nickel alloy with tin?
I have long since stopped doubting that such bullets are steel jacketed because apart from the RG everything else we get seems to be steel. I don’t have any in the safe at home since my home stock is PPU but there are plenty in the safe at the club and I will be going there on Thursday evening so provided I remember to take my magnet I can do some checking then. ( always assuming we don’t get the snow that you guys have been enjoying)
Technically, there should be an EU data sheet available (COSH) for these bullets listing all the relevent toxins and their levels. Do importers comply with such requirements? Who knows? Or will they just duck the issue and refer me to MEN direct? Thats always assuming I knew who the importer is which at the moment I don’t.
Technically also, since we store this ammo on our premises we should have COSH sheets available for them should a Health and Safety Inspector turn up and demand to see them. All I can say to that is yeah right! as if…
I have never known a COSH sheet be supplied with ammunition in the whole of my life. To us or to anybody else.
