    Hi All,

    Probably a stupid question, but what the heck does "TMJ" mean? It looks just like a full metal jacket...

    Of course, if you are refferring to Madonna's metalic bra, it would be a "Ti**y Metal Jacket"

    A TMJ will be a fully encased jacketed bullet, with a flattened nose instead of a point.

    You're right Bob. TMJ usually stands for "Total Metal Jacket". They are ok to shoot in indoor ranges and will not get any atomized lead into the air since they do not have any exposed lead.

    BEB = brass enclosed base (such as the Winchester Win-clean ammo)
