SECTION 2 NOTES:
SECTION 3: HAZARDS IDENTIFICATION EMERGENCY OVERVIEW: Do not take internally. Keep away from sources of ignition. Explosive. Avoid subjecting product to physical shock/ impact. Byproducts of use may be harmful if inhaled.
ROUTES OF ENTRY: Inhalation, ingestion, eyes POTENTIAL HEALTH EFFECTS EYES: Use of product may result in airborne particles/fragments. Particles/fragments may cause irritation or eye injury if safety glasses are not used.
SKIN: Minimal irritation. Wash hands after use and before eating, drinking or smoking to reduce chances of ingestion. INGESTION: Not a likely route of exposure. INHALATION: Under normal conditions of use, inhalation is not expected to be a siginificant route of exposure. ACUTE HEALTH HAZARDS: Particulates from firing: Eye irritation or injury, skin irritation. Inhaling large amounts of copper dust may cause nasal and respiratory irritation as well as nausea and vomiting. Zinc ingestion may cause headache, nausea, fever. CHRONIC HEALTH HAZARDS: Long-term exposure to copper dust/fumes may affect liver and kidneys. May also lead to dermal allergic reaction. MEDICAL CONDITIONS GENERALLY AGGRAVATED BY EXPOSURE: Respiratory conditions easily aggravated by airborne dust or particulates. CARCINOGENICITY OSHA: No IARC: No OTHER: No PAGE 1 OF 5 MATERIAL SAFETY Hornady® Ammunition with DATA SHEET Monolithic Projectiles MSDS DATE: 7/29/13 SECTION 3 NOTES: The physical form of these products makes it unlikely that exposure of any significant amount will occur. Exposure is very unlikely during normal handling and firing. Firing ammunition will produce small particles that could contain minute amounts of the chemicals listed in section 1. Greatest exposure will occur if firing takes place indoors. See section 8 for exposure controls. SECTION 4: FIRST AID MEASURES EYES: Immediately flush out fume or particles with large amounts of water for at least 15 minutes. If irritation develops, call physician. SKIN: Wash affected skin thoroughly with soap and water. INGESTION: If ingested, call physician immediately. INHALATION: If signs of lung irritation occur, remove victim to fresh air immediately. If respiration has stopped administer CPR and get medical attention immediately. SECTION 4 NOTES:

SPECIAL FIRE FIGHTING PROCEDURES: Flood area with water to cool exposed product and extinguish fire. UNUSUAL FIRE AND EXPLOSION HAZARDS: Classified as explosive threat. Low to moderate velocity projectiles and localized detonations (generally confined to the immediate vicinity of the packages). Use normal fire fighting equipment including face shield and SCBA. If product is likely to ignite, withdraw all personnel to a distance of at least 50 ft. and fight fire using normal precautions. HAZARDOUS DECOMPOSITION PRODUCTS: Carbon monoxide, nitrogen oxides. SECTION 6: ACCIDENTAL RELEASE MEASURES ACCIDENTAL RELEASE MEASURES: Spills will not normally require emergency response. Do not expose product to mechanical shock, electrical shock or impact. Spilled product can be pickup up by any non-spark, non-impact tools/methods. If spill is large or other assistance is required, call 800-338-3220 or CHEMTREC at 800-424-9300.
SECTION 6 NOTES: If cartridges are damaged or ruptured be very careful to avoid all sources of ignition. PAGE 2 OF 5 MATERIAL SAFETY Hornady® Ammunition with DATA SHEET Monolithic Projectiles MSDS DATE: 7/29/13 SECTION 7: HANDLING AND STORAGE HANDLING AND STORAGE: Store in a cool, dry location. Do not expose to excessive heat, flame or other sources of ignition. Avoid mechanical shock and electrical discharge. Refer to section 10 for reactivity information. SECTION 8: EXPOSURE CONTROLS/PERSONAL PROTECTION ENGINEERING CONTROLS: Use of proper range filtration and airflow as well as sound deadening material for indoor firing. VENTILATION: Use mechanical ventilation if product is utilized indoors to maintain exposures below PEL. Ventilation should not be required outdoors. RESPIRATORY PROTECTION: Not normally needed. EYE PROTECTION: Safety glasses SKIN PROTECTION: Not normally needed OTHER PROTECTIVE CLOTHING OR EQUIPMENT: Use adequate hearing protection when using firearms. WORK HYGIENIC PRACTICES: Wash hands thoroughly after use and before eating, drinking or using tobacco. SECTION 8 NOTES: WARNING: FIRED PROJECTILES MAY CAUSE SERIOUS INJURY OR DEATH. Use ammunition ONLY in firearms that are of the correct caliber and in good condition. ALWAYS keep the muzzle pointed in a safe direction. Projectiles have extremely long range, always be certain to have an adequate backstop. To avoid ricochet, do not fire at water, rocks or other hard or flat surfaces.
