This round’s bullet is authentic -- at 405 grains and made entirely of lead, it’s just what the US Government called for when they designed the caliber. At virtually any range the bullet’s tremendous power is going to plow over nearly any threat, and the large hole its flat point carves out and its ability to deform during penetration both make it a force to be reckoned with indeed. That broad meplat is especially handy for paper targets, where you would like your shots to clearly register.
This round is inauthentic in one important aspect -- its modern propellant won’t create an annoying haze of smoke once ignited. Fiocchi’s straight and concentric brass shell casing will make any handloader very happy, making a case of these fine rounds all the greater an investment!
