This cartridge doesn’t rely on an extremely heavy bullet to dampen its muzzle velocity down to a mere 1,060 fps. Its charge of propellant is just a little less potent than average. You’re naturally going to witness a steeper trajectory when you fire this ammo, but its open tip bullet is still highly accurate. Its nose cavity doesn’t permit terminal expansion – it’s there because the open tip’s lead core was poured in place, giving it the uniform weight distribution which so drastically improves rotational stability.
Your suppressor, if you have one, will especially like this ammo. Winchester’s open tip bullet has a jacket that fully encloses its base. That’s how it prevents hot propellant gasses from vaporizing the lead in its core, so your suppressor’s baffles will remain much cleaner by the end of your range session.
This ammo is brass-cased and non-corrosive, with Boxer primers that make it reloadable. Please note that this ammo’s lower pressure may not reliably cycle all semi-automatic firearms.
