Many people mistake the HPBT for a hunting bullet – but not you. An operator like you knows that the HPBT’s nose cavity is only there because molten lead is poured into its copper jacket at the factory. This gives the bullet the balance it requires to conserve its gyroscopic stability hundreds of yards downrange.
The HPBT’s narrow meplat, aerodynamic jacket profile and boat tail all complement its form-fitted core to grant it a G1 ballistic coefficient of 0.553 (G7 BC 0.278). When the HPBT clears a 23.5” barrel, it reliably retains sufficient momentum to remain supersonic until has crossed the 1,200-yard line.
