The exclusive polymer coating in Syntech® prevents harsh metal-on-metal contact between the bullet and bore, eliminating copper and lead fouling. Combined with clean-burning powders and the Catalyst lead-free primer, Syntech loads keep your gun cleaner, longer, so you can shoot more—and shoot better.
• Polymer-encapsulated Syntech® bullet prevents metal-on-metal contact in the bore, eliminating copper and lead fouling, while extending barrel life
• Exclusive lead-free primer formulation provides the most reliable, consistent ignition
• Clean-burning propellants minimize residue and fouling
• Significantly reduces the required frequency of cleaning
• Absence of a copper jacket minimizes splash-back on steel targets
• Less perceived recoil
Total Synthetic Jacket
Syntech's exclusive polymer TSJ™ construction completely encapsulates the lead core, reducing friction by 12 percent and barrel heat by 14 percent
The Syntech bullet replaces the conventional copper jacket with a slick polymer coating around a soft lead core, eliminating lead and copper fouling.
The Syntech coating prevents metal-on-metal contact between the bullet and bore. These fired bullets show how the polymer jacket stays intact after passing through the barrel.
American Eagle® Syntech™: A Smoother Way To Shoot
The exclusive polymer coating in American Eagle® Syntech™ prevents harsh metal-on-metal contact between the bullet and bore, eliminating copper and lead fouling. Combined with clean-burning powders and the Catalyst lead-free primer, Syntech loads keep your gun cleaner, longer, so you can shoot more—and shoot better.
Syntech™ Solutions: Indoor Ranges
With a polymer-encapsulated lead core and the Catalyst™ lead-free primer, American Eagle® Syntech™ ammunition is the ultimate ammunition for indoor ranges.
Syntech™ Solutions: Barrel Erosion
Get more life out of your handgun with American Eagle® Syntech™ range ammunition. Its polymer TSJ™ completely encapsulates the lead core, eliminating metal-on-metal contact. This decreases harmful heat and friction that can lead to barrel erosion and poor accuracy.
Syntech™ Solutions: Copper Fouling
Clean less and shoot more with American Eagle® Syntech™ range ammunition. The exclusive polymer TSJ™ eliminates copper fouling, and the clean-burning Catalyst™ lead-free primer minimizes powder residue.
Syntech™ Solutions: Shooting Steel
Enjoy the fun of shooting steel and stay safe with American Eagle® Syntech® range ammunition. With the polymer TSJ™ and no copper jacket, it drastically reduces the size of bullet fragments created when hitting a hard target—and the distance those fragments travel.
Syntech™ Shoot More Challenge
Sixty-three real shooters recently had the chance to put American Eagle® Syntech™ to the ultimate head-to-head test. See what happened and learn why Syntech rules the range.
Introducing American Eagle® Syntech™ from Federal®. Its Catalyst™ high-performance lead-free primer provides the cleanest, most complete ignition ever. With less felt recoil, you’ll shoot Syntech better, and you’ll shoot more thanks to its TSJ™ bullet. The polymer coating reduces heat and friction in the barrel and creates less splashback.
