Fiocchi to Introduce Blue Guardian Lead-Free Defense and Training Ammo

Fri Jan 22, 2021

Fiocchi, a global leader in defensive ammunition, merges the latest cartridge technology with its Old-World heritage craftsmanship to deliver the new Blue Guardian series defense and training ammo.

Building on its years of producing NATO-certified cartridges and components, such as heavy metal-free primers, Fiocchi brings its innovative, duty-proven military ammunition manufacturing expertise to bear on a new line of specialized ammo for law enforcement professionals and personal defense applications.

Blue Guardian Reduced Ricochet – Developed for high-volume training, Fiocchi Blue Guardian RR features lead-free and frangible ballistically matched bullets in .380, 9mm Luger, .40 S&W, .45 ACP, .223 45 gr., .223 55 gr., and .300 BL. Engineered to disintegrate on impact with materials harder than themselves – i.e. AR500 steel, Blue Guardian FR is ideal for handgun and CQB training. Lead-free primers offer additional safety for use in closed environments. Intended for duty use and personal/home protection where ricochet is a concern in hard structure environments, Blue Guardian RR delivers the ideal combination of terminal performance and collateral safety. Incorporating an environmentally safe lead-free primer, Blue Guardian RR is based on a lead-free hollow point reduced ricochet bullet. The hollow point design induces critical fragmentation upon penetration of soft tissue yet begins to dump energy and disintegrate with impact on hard surfaces such as steel, concrete, tile, etc. Available for .380, 9mm Luger, .40 S&W, and .45 ACP.
