National Police Ammunition HELO SR Features
HELO SR stands for High Expansion Law Enforcement Ordnance, Sintered Ram, according to NPA. The monolithic solid copper bullet is match grade and utilizes a hollow point. Additionally, the bullet features a black oxide coating for improved feeding and fouling mitigation. The company also seeks a patent on the bullet’s metal alloy sintered ballistic tip, according to NPA.
“My team and I initially met with the SRT team and they gave us performance specifications they required that their current ammunition could not attain, and they dared me to develop a better bullet,” said Erik Agazim, founder of NPA. “I love a good challenge so over the course of 18 months we tried various methods of trial and error to satisfy the teams requirements, when we finally succeeded, we realized that we had developed a bullet design that was completely unique.”
