This round features a 300 grain bonded jacketed hollow point projectile. The bullet is made by Speer in the same fashion as their popular Gold Dot line of ammunition, where an alloyed lead core is electrochemically fused to its copper jacket one single molecule at a time. Because of this the JHP’s core and jacket remain essentially inseparable as they penetrate tough hide and bone, promoting the weight retention that access to the vitals mandates. The bullet’s exceptionally concentric jacket further benefits its in-flight stability. Of course, this bullet will expand the entire time it’s penetrating, dumping its insane amount of energy while simultaneously establishing a wicked wound cavity.
This round’s brass case is nickel plated via the Ducta-Bright 7a process. The plating reduces friction for more reliable feeding and extraction as well as staves off corrosion, and it is less brittle so you can count on being able to reload it. Underwood’s propellant is formulated to reduce muzzle flash, so you’ll still be able to see after you take your first crack at a hog in the nighttime.
