Woodleigh Weldcore Soft Nose bullets are Australian made hunting bullets with a reputation for quality and performance on all types of game. All Woodleigh bullets are field tested on a variety of game ranging from goats to elephants. Weldcore Soft Nose bullets are traditional round nose soft point bullets featuring bonded cores using the Weldcore technology Weldcore Soft Nose jackets are made from 90/10 gilding metal (90% copper: 10% zinc) 1.6mm thick. All jackets are made by deep drawing through several processes and are specifically profiled internally for optimum jacket wall taper. This gives them the feature of reliable controlled expansion at various impact velocities. Maximum retained weight is obtained by fusing the pure lead to the gilding metal jacket. This minimizes fragmentation of the nose section as it mushrooms, so that deep penetration for rapid and humane killing of tough animals is obtained. This is not loaded ammunition.
Note: For ultimate bullet expansion and results, it is recommended that this bullet be fired in a load with an impact velocity no greater than 2200 fps and no less than 1800 fps.
