What does TMJ mean?

TMJ means Total Metal Jacket or Copper Plated when referring to projectiles. The lead has an electro plating to reduce lead residue in your barrel. This copper jacket is thin and cannot handle high velocities. Companies like Berry’s and Xtreme offer TMJs, along with all the other large manufactures who use them in their ammo.


What does FMJ mean?

FMJ means Full Metal Jacket or Copper Jacketed. Copper jackets are much thicker than copper plating and hold up better to high velocities. The military spec requires FMJ-style projectiles. Due to the process and the raw materials involved, FMJs tend to be higher priced than TMJ projectiles.


What does JSP mean?

JSP means Jacket Soft Point. Because we get multiple manufactures products we can’t always determine exactly what soft point it might be. JSP are copper jacketed lead projectiles with an exposed lead tip. Those lead tips will vary in size at times and not always be identical. Please understand lead is soft and easily formed at times.
