Winchester’s Copper Impact line of ammunition features the Copper Extreme Point. It is lead-free, and fully compliant with laws which ixnay lead bullets. A monolithic bullet’s inability to deposit dirty lead residue within the barrel or toxic lead fragments inside a quarry’s meat are nice added aspects of its performance.
The 150 grain Copper Extreme Point’s uniform weight distribution and giant polymer tip contribute to its respectable 0.393 G1/0.196 G7 ballistic coefficient. Were you to fire the bullet at a deer standing at 500 yards, its trajectory would not have to rise higher than 15.88”. The bullet also retains at least 1,000 ft lbs of energy until it passes 700 yards. In short, if you can hit it, you can anchor it.
The Copper Extreme Point has yet another trick up its sleeve. Because copper is so ductile and malleable, it is able to withstand high-velocity impact without splintering apart. This assures the bullet can penetrate deeply while simultaneously unleashing wide diameter expansion courtesy of its tip’s abnormally broad base.
These nontoxic hunting cartridges hail from Illinois, where they receive the high-quality supporting components any rifle would need to perform reliably.
