Expansion starts powerfully directly on impact.
The gelantine block (35cm) shows the impact of the TIPSTRIKE entering from the left at 800 m/s. The bullet is designed to release its energy powerfully on impact. It gives a strong shock effect on the game and with this high energy release, the speed of the bullet drops quickly. The mechanical lead lock makes sure the bullet has the highest retained weight possible, which in its turn delivers an excellent penetration.
INSTANT STOP - FROM FACTORY TO REALITY
Both bullets above are caliber .30-06 and have reached their target at 800 m/s.
The bullet to the left was shot in ballistic gelantine at a Norma test shoot. The bullet to the right was shot in a real hunting situation and was retained from a wild boar. On both occasions, the mechanical lead lock fulfilled its purpose and contributed to the highest possible residual weight.
