Cutting Edge Bullets manufacture premium solid projectiles that will perform as well in the field as they shoot on the range. Each bullet is precisely machined on CNC Swiss Style Automatic Lathes with the ogive radius, ogive length, boat tail angle and boat tail length held to the tightest tolerance achievable by any manufacturing method helping to achieve unmatched consistency and accuracy downrange. Each bullet has gone through extensive testing and passed extensive quality control measures to ensure that it will perform as designed each and every time the trigger is pulled. Every bullet made is checked with an optical comparator to help ensure strict tolerances are being met. When a run of bullets is made CEB checks every five to ten bullets for proper weight and size they also make any adjustments necessary to ensure each bullet is running true to the center of the tolerance. Every 50th to 100th bullet has a 100% complete inspection checking every aspect of the bullet even the smallest details like chamfers and radii. Critical bullet aspects such as body diameters are maintained at +/- .0001" ensuring these are the most consistent bullets on the market.

The Match Tactical Hunting bullet performs as well in the field as they do on the range. These bullets combine match grade accuracy with outstanding terminal performance. Bullet weight is maintained within .4 grains on all calibers from 6mm bullets through the massive 50 BMG projectiles. One of the key features of these solid copper bullets is the SealTite Band. The STB is a small band that is just slightly larger diameter than the standard diameter bullet. This band is the key to preventing any pressure from escaping around the bullet, sealing the bullet to the rifling bore light the seal that is created when a traditional bullet is fired.

Low Drag Max bullets retain a lot of the same design as the standard Low Drag bullets from CEB except the SealTite Band is as close to the tail of the bullet as practical so reloaders can use maximum case capacity while loading. These bullets are built for custom single shot rifles or for the reloader who does not mind shooting single shot as magazines will typically not accept the long overall length of the cartridge that results when it is loaded properly. Many times if a round is chambered but not fired the bolt must be removed to remove the loaded cartridge because the length will prevent the cartridge from ejecting. These bullets can be seated deeper in the case neck but it is very important that the SealTite band not be seated deeper than the first half of the case neck or improper neck tension will occur. Max designated bullets are designed for standard throating unless stated otherwise.
