By combining a Super Shock Tip (SST™) premium polymer tipped bullet with a sabot, Hornady has created a black powder projectile that is almost as accurate and deadly as centerfire ammo. The sabot allows use of a lighter caliber bullet for longer shots. The SST™ improves the ballistic coefficient for fast, flat flight; an Inter-Lock ring locks the jacket to the core; and the polymer tip initiates expansion on impact to produce a wide, deep wound channel and extreme terminal performance. Now you can shoot your muzzleloader with the same confidence you'd have with your centerfire rifle. Thanks to Hornady's advanced muzzleloading technology, you can shoot your black powder rifle with less recoil. At longer ranges. With a projectile that penetrates better, retains more of its weight, and offers better sectional density (the ratio of the bullet's retained weight to its expanded diameter). It all adds up to a deadlier, more accurate muzzleloading experience.
