This cartridge’s 165 grain bullet has a crazy high 0.628 G1 ballistic coefficient (0.315 G7 BC). It’s able to hug a flat trajectory and plow into a 500 yard target with over 1,800 ft lbs of energy thanks to its aerodynamic gray polymer tip, extended tangent ogive profile, long boat tail and intensely concentric jacket. If you were only looking for a long-distance target shooting bullet, the ABLR would serve handsomely.
But the ABLR is a hunting bullet in full. Its core and jacket are welded together and remain bonded even during high velocity penetration, thus assuring a long wound channel. The ABLR’s polymer tip smashes deep down into its nose cavity following impact, creating a wide wound cavity as its tapered jacket provides uniform expansion.
The ABLR requires a minimum impact velocity of 1,300 fps in order to unleash the full extent of its terminal ballistics. This cartridge’s bullet shouldn’t become slower than 1,300 fps until it has passed 1,350 yards, and its brass, primer and propellant are all expertly loaded so you can look forward to the best performance during your hunt.
This ammunition is not compatible with 6.8 SPC firearms.
