This cartridge features a 405 grain lead flat point projectile. It shoots just like the classic load, which came out nearly a decade before the words “full metal jacket” meant anything. With its broad tip this bullet doesn’t risk a magazine misfire in a lever action rifle, and it transfers a lot of energy simultaneously at the moment of impact to anchor game fast.
This round isn’t totally historically accurate. It’s loaded with smokeless propellant instead of black powder, so it won’t engulf you in a belch of smoke when your fire it. It’s also equipped with a non-corrosive Boxer primer that will keep your old rifle rust-free, and its new production brass shell casing is worth every second you’d spend reloading it.
