First of all, the eXergy Blue is accurate. Its sharp polymer tip, evenly distributed weight and boat tail add up to give the monolithic bullet a G1 ballistic coefficient of 0.288. According to the manufacturer’s data (taken with a 16.25” test barrel), this round’s bullet doesn’t become subsonic until it passes 400 yards, and it strikes with over 1,000 ft lbs of energy at targets within 70 yards. And thanks to the bullet’s lead-free design and grooved shank, it deposits only minimal fouling on a barrel’s rifling.
The eXergy Blue’s tip rams down into its nose cavity on ignition. This forces five orange peel shaped petals to flare outward, which together inflict the wide wound channel that neutralizes a threat fast.
Sellier & Bellot’s Czech-made, brass-cased and Boxer-primed ammo is also deep-penetrating. Copper is too tough to undergo significant fragmentation as it penetrates plywood, sheet metal, thick fabric, muscle tissue and bone, so it consistently bores deeply enough to deal serious damage. Good for varmint hunting as well, if you want to hunt varmints with lead-free bullets!
