Manufacturer: Buffalo Bore 3K/20Non-returnable item. We will not accept any returns on this item.
This load is designed as the world’s premier deer load for the 45 Colt +P. The cast bullet is not considered hard, but neither is it soft. It is essentially a “medium” cast hardness with a BHN (Brinell Hardness Number) of 12. Pure lead is 4 and most hard cast bullets range from 15 to 25.
This load was designed specifically to do horrific damage to deer sized animals such as average black bear and hogs. It will make an incredible anti personnel load if you can handle the recoil. It is flash suppressed and will not blind the shooter if used in low light when the criminal element and wild animals are most active.
This load is designed as the world’s premier deer load for the 45 Colt +P. The cast bullet is not considered hard, but neither is it soft. It is essentially a “medium” cast hardness with a BHN (Brinell Hardness Number) of 12. Pure lead is 4 and most hard cast bullets range from 15 to 25. It performs as follows:
At an impact velocity of 1,100 fps it will mushroom to about 80 cal. and should push right through any deer with a broadside shot
At an impact velocity of 1,500 fps it will mushroom and some of the mushroom will fragment off and send bullet particles flying through the deer, but much of the mushroom and shank will remain intact and should push through any deer hit broadside
At an impact velocity of 1,900 fps the entire mushroom will turn to shrapnel and send bullet particles all throughout the deer. The shank will remain intact, but will re-mushroom and do horrific damage inside the deer and will probably push through any deer hit broadside
