This cartridge is armed with a 140 grain soft point. That’s the simplest kind of bullet you could use for taking medium game, but its simple design only means that it works like a charm. Despite its rounded nose profile, the SP bullet is ballistically efficient enough to retain at least 1,000 ft lbs of energy until 450 yards. (That’s the magic number most try to stick to while hunting whitetail.) The streamlined bullet will also stay supersonic until nearly 900 yards (manufacturer recorded muzzle velocity with 21.75” test barrel; 0.417 G1 BC; 0.210 G7 BC).
The SP’s brass jacket is tough enough to keep the bullet mostly intact as its exposed lead core produces wide terminal expansion. The SP will most likely tumble around as it accesses the quarry’s vital organs, inflicting a devastating wound channel before finally coming to a rest. This Czech-made ammunition is made with reloadable brass cases and non-corrosive Boxer primers.
