The Short Range Technology considerably reduces the effective range, providing great benefits when training in a reduced operating area, especially on flat terrain.
The general operational range of a 12.7x99 is 2 km. However, for safety purposes in training, a danger zone of 7 km is required. In comparison, the Short Range training round is designed for 7.62x51 training rounds which only require a danger zone of 3.5 km.
The plastic tip provides perfect weapons feed but is blown off when the round is fired. The poor aerodynamic profile decelerates the projectile much faster than a conventional bullet.
