The soft point projectile loaded into these 7.62x54mm rounds weighs in at 180 grains and shares flight characteristics with the very familiar military "spam can" ammo. Each bullet possesses toothed cannelure that locks its copper jacket to its lead core and sustains its crimp position for unspoiled accuracy. The front portion of the projectile comprises an exposed lead tip that has been tapered for aerodynamics as well as compatibility with fixed magazines. Upon impact, this tip will initiate expansion that creates a larger bleeding wound while also slowing the bullet and delivering momentum to vital organs for a clean, humane drop.
