EXPANSION AND WEIGHT RETENTION
At what velocity will GS Custom HP Bullets start expanding?
GS Custom HP Bullets.
Our original HP Bullets were designed to give a good balance between expansion and weight retention. We always make a caliber recommendation for each bullet and this is based on the expansion criteria for the particular bullet and caliber from 100 metres to the maximum practical range at which that the bullet is likely to be used. Some HP bullets will start expanding from as low as 1500 fps. Others are designed to only start at 2200 or so. Follow our recommendations and, if you are unsure, contact us for further advice. The three bullets on left were recovered from the range backstop and the three on the right, from game.
