Winchester Supreme Elite Xp3
Posted 12 November 2010 - 08:28 PM
The XP3 incorporates several popular bullet design features. These include a translucent red polycarbonate tip that resists deformation in the magazine and improves the ballistic coefficient, as does the new bullet's boat-tail heel shape. The plastic tip also initiates the expansion of the bullet by driving down into the front cavity on impact and splitting open the front of the bullet, much like the new Barnes MRX bullet, which in some respects is a similar (but independent) approach to bullet design..
The front half of the XP3 bullet body is lead free, being made of solid gilding metal (a copper alloy that avoids the copper fouling problem inherent in pure copper bullets). The back half has a conventional lead core similar to the rear core of a Nosler Partition bullet. Unlike a Nosler Partition (but like a Swift A-Frame) the rear lead core is bonded to the outer gilding metal jacket. The general effect is sort of like grafting the back half of a Nosler Partition bullet to the front half of a Barnes MRX bullet. As a finishing touch, the bullet receives Winchester's proprietary Lubalox black coating to reduce engraving force and barrel fouling.

Remember the Ark was built by amateurs, the titanic by professionals.
