  • The ideal bullet for all the 1:9.5" twist 7mm rifles out there, especially with magazine length restrictions.  With an excellent ballistic coefficient for its weight, this will smoke out of a 7mm Rem Mag and provide the accuracy and on-game performance many continue to look for with their 1:9.5" twist barrels in heavier weighted, high BC bullets but with poor terminal results due to the slower twist.  It's monolithic construction and high shock expansion characteristics will perform terminally at a level more reminiscent of a much heavier bullet while providing all the benefits of a hyper fast, aerodynamic design.


    In the 7mm-08, this completely changes the application of this cartridge, legitimizing it as a long range option for big game out beyond yardages typically considered as max for the cartridge.
