In recent times there have been advertisements for plated projectiles which indicate that such projectiles are approved for most ranges. However, when an attempt to scratch through the plating is made it cannot be done. These projectile coatings are thinner than a conventional “Jacketed” projectile but way thicker than a copper wash. In one case at least the copper, when cut off and flattened, is approximately 5 thousands of an inch thick.
After consultation with a number of interested persons, the NRC has determined that this type of projectile will NOT be approved for use at ranges where jacketed ammunition is not permitted, and would certainly not be approved for any PA Service events or ISSF CF event. Although not a full metal jacket they are definitely more than just a wash.
The “scrape” test remains the benchmark at this time.
