CPHP bullets are designed to leave behind less residue which not only increases accuracy but lengthens the time between cleanings. The bullet's curved nose allows it to feed smoothly while its hollow channel causes the bullet's lead material to peel backward during entry into a rabbit, squirrel, or small bird. This mushrooming expansion increases the bullet's lethal capacity while reducing the chance for over-penetration. As a result, hunters can expect cleaner, quicker, and more humane drops. The bullets weigh in at 36 grains which is common to the caliber and offers a great balance between flat trajectory and appropriate terminal energy. Winchester's ammunition is made in Illinois using experience gleaned from over a century and a half of serving military forces, law enforcement agencies, and the most hardcore sports shooters.
