NOT ALL AMMO ARE CREATED EQUAL
The effectiveness of the Byrna launchers is equally dependent on the performance of the launcher and the effectiveness of the ammo. Byrna’s ammo is designed specifically to optimize the performance of Byrna’s launchers and Byrna launchers should only be used with Byrna ammo.
STRONG YET FRANGIBLE
In developing the Byrna Pepper, Byrna Max and Byrna Pro-Training rounds, Byrna’s R&D team took great pains to engineer the outer shells to be sufficiently frangible so that they would easily break upon contact with the target (even when wearing puffy clothing), while ensuring that they would be strong enough not to crack or rupture in the launcher. This required the introduction of circumferential break lines and a “variable wall thickness” design.
BUILT TO EXACTING TOLERANCES FOR GREATER JOULE ENERGY AND ACCURACY
Byrna’s rounds are also built to exacting tolerances and are the truest and most consistent projectiles on the market today. The exceedingly tight tolerances allow us to manufacture projectiles with the largest possible nominal O.D. This ensures maximum kinetic energy and accuracy without the risk of jamming. This level of precision can only be accomplished using Byrna’s proprietary, state-of-the-art, Sphere Assembly Machines (SAM) that ensure consistent mass and flawless welds.
EXTREMELY POTENT FOR ENHANCED STOPPING POWER
Kinetic energy and accuracy are only half the story. The chemical irritant payload must be powerful enough to stop an assailant. Through painstaking development with a world class pharmaceutical company and extensive human subject testing, Byrna has developed the formula for two extremely powerful rounds, Byrna Pepper and Byrna Max, that are designed to utterly incapacitate a would-be assailant without causing permanent injury or death.
MAXIMUM CLOUD FORMATION AND HANG TIME
Regardless of the potency of the round, if the powder does not form a large enough cloud or hang in the air long enough, the effect of the chemical irritant will be muted. Byrna has worked to develop a payload that is both extremely potent and exhibits maximum dispersion characteristics. Because of the cloud formation, these rounds can disable the intended target even if the projectile does not hit the suspect directly. It is for this reason that chemical irritant rounds are used by law enforcement to apprehend suspects that are hiding behind a wall or barricaded in a room.
