Ft.Lauderdale, FL, November 13, 2008 --(PR.com
)-- In 2007 Gamo USA Corp. developed the first lead free environmentally friendly alloy ammunition (PBA). The new PBA ARMOR™ (Performance Ballistic Alloy) is a non-lead alloy air gun ammunition that increases piercing power up to 20% over lead, while maintaining “match grade” accuracy. Specifically designed as a hunting load, the new PBA ARMOR™ ammunition is 50% harder than lead causing penetration to be enhanced by up to 100% in tests in actual hunting situations as well as ballistic mediums. ARMOR PBA™ test results show ballistic stability at super-sonic speeds and up to 90% weight retention using the new semi-pointed design. It is not for use with air gun traps; be sure of your target and beyond.
“PBA ARMOR™ is designed as hunting ammo; it enables air guns which normally shoot 1000 fps to shoot up to 1200 fps with tremendous penetration. In fact, the ammunition is 50% harder than lead causing penetration to be enhanced by up to 100% in tests in actual hunting situations as well as ballistic mediums, that clearly explains its value in the air gun industry” July 22, 2008 Gamo USA Corp. *MSRP $12.95
