Allegiance Ammunition'sPowerStrike L is a powder metal High Energy Transfer lead core designed to create controlled penetrating fragmentation in soft targets. Excellent for hunting small, large and dangerous game as it can penetrate thick bone and hide. For tactical application it can penetrate light barriers to reach the target. Total energy transfer means no exit out of soft tissue. PowerStrike L will not ricochet but disintegrates back to powder metal dust on hard targets.
