Total Metal Jacket bullets totally cover the lead core without leaving an exposed base that can reduce the bullet's accuracy abilities under a couple of hundred yards due to aerodynamic problems with the addition of a bit of jacket to cover the base of the bullet.

Standard FMJ bullets sacrifice accuracy by adding a separate piece of jacket to cover the bullet base—or leave exposed lead. Speer TMJ bullets, however, totally encapsulate the lead core for cleaner, more accurate performance. Handloaders now have two new TMJ rifle bullet options to choose from—a 55-grain 224 cal. and a 150-grain 308 cal. Shipments of these new reloading components are being delivered to dealers now.
