Rainier Ballistics, established in 1983, has grown to become one of the two largest plated bullet producers in the world. The rapidly growing popularity of our bullets is due, principally, to three factors: (1) their relatively low price, (2) that they result in essentially zero lead vapor emissions when shot and (3) their high degree of accuracy.
All of Rainier Ballistics manufacturing is done in house and we believe that contributes to the high degree of quality of our bullets. We are open 24 hours a day dedicated solely to the manufacture of (nothing but) copper plated bullets. Rainier Ballistics extrudes its own lead wire, swages its own bullet cores, does all of its own electroplating and now "Restrikes" or re-swages its bullet cores after they have been electroplated. Only Rainier Ballistics and CCI Speer perform this second swaging step to their entire line of electroplated bullets. The result is a highly accurate, uniform and attractive bullet. In fact, a European customer of ours (that we did not even sponsor!) used our bullets to win the IPSC Championships of Europe. This new Restrike bullet technology has helped us to earn sales to such ammunition companies like Winchester, PMC / Eldorado Cartridge, Fiocchi, 3D Ammunition, Cor Bon, Master Cartridge and many more.
Rainier Ballistics' bullets, along with their accuracy, also offer the shooter the advantage of generating essentially zero lead vapor when shot. When either lead or traditional jacketed bullets (with their exposed lead bases) are shot, substantial harmful lead vapor is formed. Ranges around the world have repeatedly found that switching to Rainiers' LeadSafe™ bullets substantially reduces lead vapor levels. In fact, the owner of the largest indoor shooting range in Paris recently told us that their examination indicated a reduction of airborne lead vapor levels, after switching to our bullets, by a factor of 40X.
