This round features Fiocchi’s PSP boat tail bullet. It’s intensely aerodynamic: its sharp, pointed tip parts the air before it efficiently, and its tapering boat tail base even further lessens in-flight drag. For that reason this bullet is able to retain superior downrange velocity – and strike its target with great energy.
Once this bullet meets with hydraulic pressure its soft lead tip begins to flatten down, commencing wide expansion accompanied by violent tumbling. Line up that kind of terminal performance with the right organ and your quarry is going down without taking one step forward.
Fiocchi solely relies on reloadable brass cases, non-corrosive Boxer primers, and clean burning propellant as they turn out dependable hunting cartridges. The Italian manufacturer had been around since long before World Wars were even a thing!
