FN Herstal has expanded its small calibre ammunition range with the introduction of three new products, the FN 9mm EP duty ammunition, the FN 9mm EPT ammunition, and the FN .50 cal Short Range ammunition. According to the company all three products have already secured contracts with military or law enforcement agencies in Europe.

The FN 9mm EP (EuroPolice) duty ammunition has been developed to deliver more effective stopping power than the standard 9mm ball (FMJ) whilst reducing collateral damage in operational conditions. It features a non-toxic propellant and heavy-metal free projectile for operator safety and reduced environmental impact.

The FN 9mm EPT (EuroPolice Training) ammunition is the training-dedicated complement to the FN 9mm EP duty round. It is designed to limit deterioration of the back, roof, or side walls of indoor shooting ranges. Also non-toxic for the operator, it features the same trajectory as the FN 9mm EP round.

The FN .50 cal Short Range ammunition is designed for live firing on ranges that are safe for 7.62 NATO ammunition. The short range bullet has the same trajectory up to 800m, allowing realistic training with .50 cal weapons on ranges that could not normally be used.

The company has not released details on the customers at this stage.
