This round’s bullet is monolithic copper, so it is not only incredibly well-balanced for superior inflight rotational stability, but furthermore exceedingly tough for assured deep penetration. (A bullet can’t exhibit core/jacket separation if it hasn’t got a core and jacket to separate, after all.)
The Copper Extreme Point bullet has an unusually large polymer tip. This not only streamlines it to boost its ballistic coefficient, but provides a wide base to smash into the bullet during impact to unleash wide expansion. The bullet’s underlying hollow point cavity is wedged apart by that tip to yield a tremendous wound cavity -- great for you, less so for your quarry!
This bullet’s accuracy is made only better by its sleek, aerodynamic profile and tapered base that reduces drag. At 500 yards the bullet retains approximately 62 percent of its starting velocity, so it packs the punch you need to fell bucks and hogs over great distances. (We’re aware this is a “Deer Season” cartridge, but don’t show us the hog that can shrug off so devastating a terminal effect.)
Winchester’s own brass, propellant, and primer tie everything together to produce an exceptional hunting cartridge. You’ll wonder why we would ever use copper for less important things, like electrical wiring.
