PURE COPPER MATERIAL
Unalloyed, pure copper provides excellent performance for bullet terminal ballistics due to its good toughness-strength properties. Compared to stronger copper alloy materials, pure copper offers a better opening/forming ability of the bullet, which becomes an advantage especially at longer shooting distances, in which case the lead-free option is not a compromise even in more demanding use.
IMPROVED BULLET EXPANSION REACTION
While copper is clearly a stronger material than lead, at Sako we have noticed a weakness associated with many lead-free alternatives: the prolonged opening delay of the bullet at the critical moment of impact. With a unique, three-edged Blade tip, along with a reaction bevel and optimized wall strength, we aim to minimize the opening delay of this bullet - we're talking about improved bullet expansion reaction. With the help of the 5-stage expansion structure, the bullet achieves excellent action in a comprehensive range of action: from short to longer shooting distances, from smaller animals to big game, and all this without compromising flight ballistics.
