That'd be incorrect. MC and FMJ are the same thingMC has a fully coated bullet. FMJ has an exposed lead base.
Ye both be wrongThat'd be incorrect. MC and FMJ are the same thing
FMJ and MC both have lead exposed at the base
MC= metal case
FMJ= full metal jacket [which is a misleading term]
FMC= full metal case [a term that's rarely used]
TMJ= total metal jacket which does cover the exposed lead on the bullet base.
TMJ is available from Federal and Speer as reloaded ammunition; and Berry's and Rainier make plated TMJ bullets available as reloading components
It will depend on the manuf. meaning. There are plenty of FMJ still made w/ exposed base; WW, RP, Sierra, Hornady, etc.Ye both be wrong
MJ Jacketed are just that, a lead bullet with a copper jacket wrapped around it. While MC bullets are lead bullets that are plated with a non-lead substance usually a copper alloy. The T and F are pretty much the interchangable now days as you do not find many hand gun rounds with exposed base. Coated bullets are usually cheaper because they require less copper and less effort to manufacture.
Both Berry and Rainer manufacture Plated or Coated bullets not jacketed bullets though Berry does make a jacketed rifle round.
Same here. Wish I could get some more of those 200gr Rainier .45 bullets for a reasonable price. They do well in my XD Service.Every MC bullet I ever used had an unexposed base and were copper plated. Every jacketed bullet I ever used actually had a jacket (duh!!) and an exposed base.
