    Negative on the first question and affirmative on the second.
    The bullets are jacketed hollow-points,coated with Lubalox, a black oxide finish that looks like lead but is cleaner burning. It was originally used in the Black Talon ammo that caused such a fuss many years ago.
    It is available as personal protection ammo at about $25 per box of fifty, and as training ammo (without the hollow point) at about $16 per box.

      I should add that it is not high-velocity ammo that would be rated as +P, with higher-than-standard pressures, so it should be perfectly safe to shoot out of small handguns.

        Winchester SXZ is just handgun ammo that comes with Winchester's signature Lubalox coating. They come in personal protection, which is JHP, and in training ammo, which is FMJ.

          It is definitely a lead bullet (not legal to carry while hunting in CA condor zone, or rest of state after 2019). And should be fine in your LC9.

            Although it has a lead core totally encased in a gilding metal jacket, it is not a lead bullet in the context of a discussion concerning the merits of lead vs jacketed bullets.
            It is probably legal to carry anywhere in California, but prohibited for the taking of wildlife.
