With lower velocities and projectile weight, the UTM Target Shooting Round is designed for complete safety and reliability, bringing target practice with your weapon to a whole new level – without the need for a range and free from live fire restrictions. The UTM Target Shooting Round utilizes the same core technology the U.S. Military, Special Forces and Law Enforcement Agencies have been using in their operational weapons during training for nearly a decade.
The UTM Target Shooting Conversion is uniquely designed to prevent the discharge of traditional 5.56mm/.223 “live” ammunition (5.56 NATO, 5.56 x 45mm, and .223 Remington). Fail-Safe is achieved by utilizing a 3mm offset firing pin design, which will only work with the rim fire powerload used in the UTM Target Ammunition, but not with a “live” center fire cartridge. In the event a 5.56mm “live” cartridge is chambered and the trigger is pulled, the Conversions offset firing pin will strike outside the primer pocket of the 5.56mm “live” round. This makes it impossible to detonate the “live” ammunition in the UTM converted weapon.

The UTM Target Shooting Round is the first technology specifically designed, engineered, and expertly manufactured for reality-based practice at home! UTM’s Patented Two Primer Cartridge System is the first to isolate the large amount of operational energy needed to cycle the firearm from the small amount of energy required for propelling the UTM Target Ammunition projectile. The isolated primers allow for total control of the cartridge energies providing consistent velocities necessary for improved accuracy and controlled impact.
The expanding cartridge combined with the UTM Conversion creates a blow-back system that realistically and reliably cycles the firearm.
The UTM Target System conversion is designed so the weapon’s dust cover will not close so the blue indicator of a safe converted weapon is always visible.
