THIS LOAD HAS BEEN REPLACED BY THE 180GR REX EXPANDING SUBSONIC. CLICK BACK ONE PAGE TO FIND.
Unfortunately, this load is discontinued. We were receiving reports of poor stabilization in certain rifles, and a clear pattern couldn't be established. But it worked like a dream in others. Lehigh is currently working on an improved projectile that will stabilize in a broader spectrum of rifles
In the meantime, we recomend using our .308 220gr RNSP, they hit like a frieght train.
REQUIRES 1/10" BARREL TWIST TO PROPERLY STABILIZE BULLET
20 Round Box
1010 Fps --- Remington 700 20" Bolt Guns
1025 Fps --- Ruger M77 20" Bolt Guns
900 Fps --- Savage Model 10/11 PLEASE NOTE: Savage Rifles do not favor these blunt nose projectiles and experience a slower velocity as well as a wider than normal velocity spread. This could be due to tolerances in rifle/barrel manufacturing, land/groove ratio, groove depth, barrel surface quality, bore diameter, groove geometry, twist lead error, etc. Due to this; WE DO NOT RECOMMEND USE OF THIS PRODUCT IN SAVAGE RIFLES.
This SUBSONIC ammunition is the next evolution in expanding subsonic projectiles. It features the Lehigh Controlled Fracturing projectile with a .17 caliber PAYLOAD projectile inside. Yes, it's a bullet inside of a bullet! HOW IT WORKS: When the bullet impacts soft tissue, four razor sharp pedals are designed to break free and shoot out at a 35 degree angle, when that takes place - the payload bullet inside is released and keeps traveling along with the projectile base. This triples the effected wound area. The energy transfer is massive. Truly amazing performance.
Please note: this ammunition is designed to expand upon contact with a fluid-based medium through hydraulic energy. They are not designed to expand on dry mediums such as wood, drywall, bone, or sheet metal. The expansion process of Lehigh's Controlled Fracturing technology is very different than that of a traditional lead jacketed bullet that expands when it comes in contact with a hard surface -- This ammunition is designed to expand on soft tissue.
