Copper is of course less dense than lead, so this 7mm Rem Mag round’s 140 grain bullet is long. Federal engineers pressure relieving grooves into the Trophy Copper’s shank so as to reduce the amount of contact it makes with the barrel, thus improving accuracy. This Trophy Copper’s sharp tip and boat tail both reduce drag to ensure faster velocities downrange, more energy on impact, and less influence from crosswinds. A 0.489 ballistic coefficient is a handy secret weapon for any long-distance hunter to have on his side.
The Trophy Copper’s tip sits on the rim of a nose cavity. It spikes down into the monolithic bullet on impact to elicit massive expansion, even at lower velocities. And the environmentally friendly, clean shooting Trophy Copper has yet another trick up its sleeve. Its tough, jacketless design lets it retain as much as 99 percent of its total weight throughout penetration to guarantee a very deep wound cavity!
Federal’s nickel-plated brass case will not succumb easily to corrosion, nor should its low friction exterior trip up your bolt-action as you cycle into your next round. All 1.35 inches of this hunting round are pure class!
