BTsilvertip-section-hunting.jpg

Hunting Bullet

1 Polymer Silvertip
Polymer Silvertip prevents deformation in the magazine.

2 Lubalox ®Exterior Coating
 Reduces fouling, pressure and friction between bullet and bore; provides longer barrel life, easier cleaning and enhanced accuracy.

3 Fully Tapered Jacket and Special Lead-Alloy Core
 Allows controlled expansion and optimum weight retention at all practical velocity levels. The heavy jacketed base prevents bullet deformation during firing.

4 Heavy Jacketed Base
 Acts as a platform for large- diameter mushroom.

5 Ballistically Engineered Solid Base®
Boat tail configuration combines with the streamlined polymer tip for extreme long-range performance and for easier loading.

Varmint Bullet

1 Polymer Silvertip
Polymer Silvertip prevents deformation in the magazine.

2 Ultra-Thin Jacket Mouth
 Assures violent expansion at either end of the velocity scale.

3 Lubalox ®Exterior Coating
 Reduces fouling, pressure and friction between bullet and bore; provides longer barrel life, easier cleaning and enhanced accuracy.

4 Varmint Jacket Wall Design
 The uniform, gradual thickening at the bullet’s mid-section is designed to keep the Ballistic Tip® Varmint together until impact – at any velocity.

What is Lubalox®?

Lubalox®  is the trade name Winchester uses to describe a black oxide process. It is a very thin oxide bullet coating, often compared to the bluing on a steel firearm.

What are the benefits of Lubalox®?

The primary benefit of Lubalox is reduced barrel fouling. The process creates a surface on the bullet jacket, which increases the number of shots possible between cleanings. Unlike moly-coated bullets, Lubalox-coated bullets leave the barrel residue-free and do not require barrel “seasoning”. Additionally, unlike uncoated bullets that tarnish over time, Lubalox protects the surface of the bullet jacket, keeping it looking like new.

Will Lubalox® harm the gun barrel?

Lubalox does not harm the barrel.  In fact, testing shows that the coating often reduces barrel fouling.

Lubalox® coating  is not a Moly coating.
