Frequently Asked Questions
Please review our list of frequently asked questions below. If you are unable to find the answers you are looking for please email us for additional information. We will be updated our FAQ section based on our customer inquires.
Q: Will your bullets disintegrate if I push them to fast?
Because of our bullets machined, monolithic design, they will not disintegrate no matter how fast you push them. In fact, we encourage people to push them as fast as they please.
Q: What is the band around your copper MTH and MTAC bullets?
This is our patented SealTite™ Band. It is a band slightly larger than caliber diameter designed to decrease gas blow-by, eliminating fliers.
Q: What twist rate do I need to have to shoot your bullets?
All the required minimum twist rates are listed under each bullet on our website. Please note that this is REQUIRED, not recommended. You will not be able to stabilize a bullet if you have a twist rate slower than the listed minimum required twist rate.
Q: I noticed your bullets are light for caliber. Why is this?
All of our bullets are monolithic brass or copper making them lighter than traditional lead core bullets. You may be used to shooting a heavier bullet out of your rifle, but you may need to go lighter than usual with our bullets depending on twist rate. Don’t let this scare you away; you will be able to push them a lot faster.
Q: I noticed you have both copper and brass raptors; what is the difference?
Copper is softer and is also lead free for areas requiring non lead hunting. Copper tends to be a little higher BC than brass. Brass also tends to break up a little more violently than copper. Brass also tends to be better for your barrel and almost has a cleaning effect. Please note that brass has a trace amount of lead in it.
Q: What are the black tips I see in some of your bullets?
The bullets with black tips tend to have larger hollow points than our high BC MTH line. Without the tip, this large cavity creates drag, lowering BC. Because of this, we added a black polymer tip to help increase the BC.
Q: Is your PHD (Personal Home Defense) ammunition loaded to standard or +P pressures?
Our PHD ammo is loaded to standard pressure. We did this for a few different reason. First of all, the bullets in our ammo are designed to function down to 1200fps, so there is no need for higher velocity in order for them to function. Also, standard pressures allow for less recoil. Our bullets are light for caliber since they are solid copper, so therefore the overall weight of the cartridge will be lighter. This in addition to the standard pressures allow for a significant reduction in recoil which can be beneficial in defensive situations and also for female shooters.
