This affordable cartridge by Sellier & Bellot will turn your pistol into a real weapon for self defense. Its 180 grain projectile sports a copper alloy jacket, which enables it to cause minimal bore fouling while facilitating penetration through a variety of common barriers. Upon impact with the target the jacket strengthens the bullet for more certain passage within. As this bullet works its way through its target, the evenly spaced notches spanning its tip strategically weaken it so that the hollow point nose cavity can cause expansion along a reliable axis. Along with the inherent power that its caliber provides, this bullet is therefore capable of delivering a wide, gaping wound channel through whatever should be so unfortunate as to find itself in its path. Sellier & Bellot’s own new production brass casing provides optimal seating as well as smooth feeding and ejection, and their responsive Boxer primer is one that won’t let you down in a time of crisis.
