The white plastic band engages the rifling of the launcher barrel, imparting a nice spin stabilization to these rounds in flight. The aluminum nose of the round is thick, so no worries about hitting rocks. The projectile comes with 5 holes pre-drilled around the base of the top section for use with slow burning smoke mixes. The base section screws into the top, and has a pre-drilled fuse hole with rebated sections for glue to help hold the fuse and keep it from being blown into the projectile on launch.
The white nylon type plastic band is replaceable, so after you wear one out, you can put a brand new one in place, and keep on firing. The base has rims lathed into it to allow the RTV to get a good seal, needed to allow pressure to build up and launch the projectile.
This projectile is designed to be used with our M212 Casing or with the standard nylon M212 casings.

Some few of these projectiles were produced with a dimple instead of a smoke hole fully drilled. If you are interested, please contact us directly.
