The Ballistic Tip Lead-Free™ (BTLF) is everything that varmint and predator hunters expect from a Ballistic Tip®, in a lead-free design. The flat-based, leadless bullet features Nosler’s exclusive Fragmenting Copper Core Technology™ (patent pending) which exhibits immediate and rapid expansion, initiated by its metallic-colored polymer tip, at practical varmint shooting velocities of 1600 fps and above.
The BTLF can safely be used in all lead-free zones or shooting ranges that require non-magnetic bullets. Users can be confident of the same performance and quality that the Ballistic Tip has made famous for more than 25 years.
Ballistic Tip Lead-Free bullets are offered at the same MSRP as standard Ballistic Tip® bullets in 50ct. and 100ct. boxes.
Varmint hunters have everything to gain by shooting Nosler’s Ballistic Tip Lead-Free bullets. The BTLF bullets contain a “Fragmenting Copper Core” that rapidly expands into tiny bits at velocities down to 1,600 feet per second. Accuracy is also right up there with regular lead-core Ballistic Tips. The 35-grain BTLF bullets loaded in Nosler’s Trophy Grade™ Varmint .22-250 ammunition averaged .95 inches for three, five-shot groups at 100 yards and .81 inches with Trophy Grade™ Varmint .223 Remington loads. I’ve made the switch, and I’m sticking to it.
