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.
Raptor bullets are solid brass and copper, expanding projectiles with devastating terminal performance designed to properly function in sport rifles like the AR-15. 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. Raptor bullets are designed so that after 1-2" of penetration, four petals break off and radiate outward in a star pattern while the base continues through for deeper penetration. This provides extreme, game-dropping terminal performance that is second to none.
This Flat Base Raptor was designed specifically for the .458 SOCOM. This bullet will also work in bolt action rifles. Terminal performance is second to none for putting game on the ground quickly. This projectile will expand as intended even down to as low as 1,400 fps! This is not loaded ammunition.
