International Cartridge Corporation is the first major manufacturer to dedicate its facility to lead free frangible ammunition; this raises the bar for the future of lead-free frangible ammunition.
Conventional ammunition has a significant hazard associated with close range fire, ricochet and over penetration. The International Cartridge Corporation's round has controlled fragmentation characteristics while maintaining lethal penetrating capabilities. This unique performance reduces hazard for the shooter without compromising firepower. International Cartridge Corporation (ICC) is a woman owned company dedicated to the manufacture of Frangible Lead-Free Ammunition. ICC is the first company to dedicate its manufacturing exclusively to lead-free frangible ammunition. The staff includes professionals with extensive experience within the ammunition industry, research and development engineers, military and law enforcement professionals, and certified firearm instructors.
Manufacturing operations have recently expanded, and new automated assembly equipment was implemented to optimize the process.
ICC uses bullet components made with patented technology. ICC developed a family of exclusive products to advance the lead-free frangible concept beyond typical training concerns to include tactical, duty, special purpose and military applications. All NATO and law enforcement calibers are available.
Lead poisoning is common among shooters and instructors, and can be induced by touch and inhalation. Conventional lead bullets propose an environmental hazard causing millions of dollars in Hazardous Waste cleanup. Lead-free ammunition has numerous advantages, and can save money and the environment.
Recent advances in non-toxic ammunition technology have offered a solution to this problem. Lead-free ammunition, now used by the federal law enforcement, military, and many others, produced great results and dramatically reduced the hazards produced by lead. By dramatically reducing the amount of airborne lead in both shooting ranges as well as in the field, advantages are inevitable.
Standard jacketed ammunition will ricochet and has inherent danger. Due to the characteristics of ICC frangible ammunition, hazards are reduced and in most situations, eliminated completely.
International Cartridge Corporation is constantly researching and testing ammunition components to provide you with the most reliable, environmentally safe ammunition on the market.
