BUFFALO BORE BULLETS PROVIDE DEEP PENETRATION
Buffalo Bore offers good quality ammunition loaded with flat nose, semi-wadcutter, full wadcutter, jacketed hollowpoint and bonded core hollowpoint bullets. These bullets are chosen for the problem to be solved and the job at hand.
As an example, a full wadcutter bullet is usually chosen as a target bullet. When the bullet is hard cast rather than soft lead and loaded to velocity over 850 fps, the bullet gets more interesting. Rather than pushing flesh aside as a round nose load bullet might, the Buffalo Bore load cuts a hole in flesh and penetrates straight and deep. The result is greater wound potential.
Both RNL and FMJ bullets sometimes slip or skip on bone. A flat nose bullet will not. The SWC bullet with its flat nose and hard-driving shoulder offers excellent wound potential and it is a favorite of those hunting large game that demand greater penetration.
While Buffalo Bore’s .357 Magnum and .45 ACP hollow point loads are well designed—and the .44 Special lead hollow point is a favorite—in .32 ACP, .32 H&R Magnum and .380 ACP these flat point loads maximize the caliber. Buffalo Bore offers cookie cutter type full wadcutter defense loads.
The owner, Tim Sundles, lives in territory where everyone is bundled up most of the year and the animals are large and aggressive. He cuts no corners with his ammunition. Just one example of Buffalo Bore performance: the 60-grain hardcast flat point .32 ACP clocked 980 fps in my Colt 1903 and penetrated a solid 24 inches. That brings the .32 ACP into a different last-ditch niche.
Buffalo Bore offers full wadcutter loads in popular calibers. This isn’t light target stuff.
