Why Copper Coated
Many pistol shooters complain about the build up of lead in their revolver and pistol barrels even when using powder coated or other baked on coating systems. Some coatings will still leave minute tracings of lead and over time will build up lead deposits in barrels. Not only is lead build up a cause of inaccuracy it can also lead to dangerous pressure spikes if not cleaned out. Electroplating a thin layer of copper over the lead solves the problem of lead deposits. Copper, while malleable, bonds extremely well to lead and retains its integrity better than some other coating systems. As with all coating systems take care to not over-crimp. Overdoing it on the crimping can strip coating and expose the lead when the round is fired.
On top of maintaining the cleanliness of your barrel exposure to airborne lead is minimised when using copper coated bullets. Airborne lead is easily ingested where there is inadequate ventilation particularly when shooting is conducted indoors or on ranges with walls and baffles.
While some misrepresent any copper coloured bullet as a "Jacketed Bullet", Tigershark's are not "jacketed" but are simply coated using an electroplating system with a thin layer of copper making them safe for use on all ranges, including ranges where jacketed bullets are banned.
