This round’s 37 grain bullet kills ‘em dead. It’s a fragmenting hollow point, so it doesn’t just expand within soft tissue – at a certain point during penetration it also splits apart into smaller pieces, each one tracking a separate wound channel in its path. Browning’s bullet is furthermore shaped to promote clean feeding into a semi-auto’s chamber, as well as copper plated to reduce lead fouling that gradually weakens a firearm’s accuracy.
This round’s bullet has no respect for the sound barrier, either. It departs from a rifle’s barrel at 1,400 fps, beginning its flat trajectory with a hearty crack before continuing onward to find some hapless critter to decimate. So fast a bullet packs nearly three times the muzzle energy of a 25 ACP!
Browning’s brass case won’t fail you, nor will their sensitive rimfire primer or uniform charge of low residue propellant. These rounds come neatly arranged in a small plastic box, which we like to save for loose ammo or small bits and bobs like screws and junk silver.
