RUBBER BULLETS FOR RIFLES

Less Lethal Africa is introducing the world's first rubber bullets for various calibers. Final product is of high quality and will sell at prices which reflect excellent value for money, bearing in mind that less lethal ammunition is more costly to produce than regular ammo.

Although the rubber bullets feel hard to the touch, they easily bend, flatten and distort on impact. A function of the special material.

It must be recalled that there is no expectation of pinpoint accuracy with these bullets. You can expect 80% of shots fired to form a 30 cm circle (or better) at 20m.

Less lethal ammunition is light and small and needs to travel fast to be effective and to be accurate outdoors if there is a breeze.

Incorrect use of less lethal ammunition can cause serious injury, even death. Some penetration is accepted as "less lethal". The clay test at 20m should have average penetration of less than 44mm. We recommend a clay suitable for less lethal ammunition penetration testing, such as Van Aken Plastalina or Roma #1 at a temperature of 20C. Ballistic gel is not suitable for less lethal ammunition testing.

Shooting at a range at least equal to the suggested minimum is essential and shots should be aimed low, legs are best. Never shoot at the head, neck, thorax, heart or spine. Less lethal ammunition should only be used by persons specifically trained in its use.

Our website focuses on three less lethal rounds for rifles:

7.62LLAx39mm - for rifles such as AK-47

7.62LLAx51mm - for rifles such as the G3, FN-FAL

5.56LLAx45mm - for rifles eg. M-16, M-4, etc.

Please note that these rounds will NOT cycle the action of the firearm; the firearm must be manually cycled for each shot.

7.62mm RUBBER BULLETS

7.62LLAx39 and 7.62LLAx51 (.308 Win) USED IN VARIOUS RIFLES INCLUDING AK47, FN-FAL, M-14, G-3 etc.

Another unique product from Less Lethal Africa is the 7.62 mm rubber bullet for use in rifles chambered 7.62 x 39 and 7.62 x 51. This has excellent application for riot and crowd control, and all cases where a “less lethal approach” is preferred. It is also useful for practice and weapon familiarisation training – there is no recoil on firing.

Safeguard Lives with Rubber Bullets

The rubber bullets have been designed with attention to ballistic detail which facilitates the engagement of bore rifling for stability and performance, yet does not result in excessive fouling. The design allows the bullet to hit nose-first and immediately de-stabilise into a sideways presentation. This is to limit the depth of penetration. The effect is similar to a very powerful sting from a bee or wasp. Some "less lethal" penetration can occur though the flared base will help limit that penetration. Aim low, legs are best.

Another key element of the design is the flared bullet base which is formed on firing. This assists stability and more accurate flight. Incorrect fire at close range can cause serious penetration.

Target range with best grouping is at 20m. At this distance more than 80% of hits lie within a 12 inch or 30cm radius. Minimum safety range is 20m, dependent on type of rifle used and heaviness of clothing. Some penetration is acceptable as "less lethal" so shoot low, aim for legs. The safety range can be adjusted to suit local law enforcement policy. Hitting a target closer than 20 meters raises the risk of serious injury.

The clay test at 20m should have average penetration of less than 44mm. We recommend a clay suitable for less lethal ammunition penetration testing, such as Van Aken Plastalina or Roma #1 at a temperature of 20C. Ballistic gel is not suitable for less lethal ammunition testing.

The 7.62 bullets will travel out more than 75 meters, however there will be reduced striking energy as the velocity will have dropped significantly. The effective range at which the bullet will cause severe pain extends beyond the 20 meter minimum range. At a range of less than 20 meters there is almost certainly going to be penetration although this is dependant, as at all ranges, on how many layers of clothing the target is wearing, and velocity which depends on the type of rifle used. The accuracy level is best at 20 meters and the dispersion increases from there on out. Sight adjustment on weapon will be required.

When being fired at with the less lethal 7.62 rounds the target/rioter/perpetrator/ can see a significant flash and hear a loud crack from most firearms. If a good flash hider is mounted on the muzzle of the gun then the flash will be reduced, but the noise is still significant and quite intimidating when coupled with the rounds striking him and nearby.

These rounds will not cycle the action of the firearm; the firearm must be manually cycled for each shot. This provides safety benefits. The delay, allows the shooter to take aim between shots and not to "open up" indiscriminately. As with all less lethal ammunition, aim low.

For those who want semi-automatic or automatic fire, we will be making simple conversion kits available in coming months.

The ability to have select fire (semi-auto or full auto) less lethal available with minimal gun modification is a huge advantage. There is no perceptible recoil from the gun, so control is easy. Excellent for training AND field use (riot control).

SAFETY -
Under no circumstances may live metallic bullet ammo or any other ammunition except for Less Lethal Africas' ammo be used with the LLA conversion bolt. Incorrect ammunition can destroy the firearm and injure the shooter. The magazine and firearm MUST be marked in "Less Lethal" yellow, (as the bolt carrier will be), to ensure that users are aware of the bolt change.

SPECIFICATIONS * min 20m range; * the rubber bullet material is a 90 Shore Hardness self-lubricating rubber; * projectile weighs 15 grains.
