Each cartridge is assembled using a new brass casing which is reloadable and fitted with a clean-igniting Boxer primer. The case bears a light crimp below its neck which helps secure the bullet in place and ensure uniform contact with the forcing cone and barrel rifling; this results in improved stability and tighter groups downrange. The projectile itself is bare lead with a round shape and a slight lip at its crimp point which prevents accuracy-ruining setback from occurring.
