XM80c questions

I recently purchased a 500 round case of white box XM80c. My question is exactly what are these rounds. The projectiles are magnetic which I have read is common with this ammo.

My biggest question is about the warning on the box. It says, this product is incendiary and may cause fires. Whats this all about? Is it because of the steel projectile?

Is this good, safe ammo to shoot?

Thanks

You're good to go. It's a copper-clad mild steel jacket. You'll experiance no increased barrel wear, however...

(there's always a however, right?)

... some ranges won't let you shoot it if it's magnetic.

It's NOT incendiary, the concern is over the steel jacket contacting a steel target, you might get sparks, they might ignite dry brush, half-full jerry cans of acetone, dried antelope pelts or anything else flammable laying around and it'll be dogs-and-cats-living-together-mass-hysteria-type-scenario.
