This government contract range cartridge sports a relatively heavier 62 grain open tip projectile. The bullet may resemble a hollow point, but it doesn’t deal significantly more damage during penetration than an FMJ would have. The opening exists because this bullet’s core was formed within the jacket itself to improve its rotational stability and resultant accuracy.
Nothing about this round’s new brass casing’s unusual color means that it isn’t a prime candidate for handloading. Count on Winchester to give a cartridge the sensitive primer and consistent propellant charge your rifle needs to work at its best.
