Many newcomers to the shooting world mistake the hollow point boat tail for a hunting bullet, but it’s just not going to deliver terminal expansion after it touches a critter. The opening in the HPBT jacket’s nose allowed Winchester to pour its form-fitted lead core into place at the factory, which makes it extremely well-balanced and also distributes more of the bullet’s weight toward its rear.
Its great rotational stability coupled with its slim nose, sleek jacket profile and low-drag boat tail all help the HPBT retain velocity and resist wind deflection downrange. Everything comes together to create a 0.590 G1 BC/0.296 G7 BC projectile which won’t undergo transonic destabilization until it has reached approximately 700 yards.
Match grade brass cases. Match grade Boxer primers. Carefully standardized propellant charges. Meticulous quality control. All of these make a Winchester Match load one of your best bets when you’re in search of true long-range precision.
