The Ballistic Tip’s poly-carbonate tip serves multiple functions. Along with the match bullet’s streamlined profile and slightly tapered boat tail, it reduces drag to promote a flatter, easier to aim trajectory. Along with its fully tapered jacket, this bullet’s tip also promotes rapid and debilitating expansion. The Ballistic Tip’s terminal effect is made all the deadlier by its sturdy alloyed core which retains optimal weight for deep penetration, as well as the thickened portion of jacket at its base which prevents any deformation from taking place until the moment of impact.
This round features a Ducta Bright 7a nickel-plated brass case. Commonly seen on self-defense rounds, nickel plating measurably reduces metal-on-metal friction to facilitate highly reliable feeding and extraction in a semi-auto. The Ducta Bright 7a process also yields more durable plating, so you can count on reloading these cases multiple times. Underwood additionally loads flash suppressed propellant, which emits less of the bright light that can impact a shooter’s night vision. Great for hunting at dusk!
