Varmints and predators beware! Nosler's ballistic Tip Varmint Bullets are designed for violent expansion upon impact. The bullet is tipped with a polycarbonate tip which rapidly drives back forcing the thin jacket to expand and fragment. The heavy base prevents deformation during firing. Now offered in a lead-free design, this bullet is made with a metallic polymer tip and is safe to shoot in areas where shooting lead bullets is not allowed. This is not loaded ammunition.
