Bullets for defense and hunting in handguns - You can pay more but you cannot buy better.


1. Our bullet numbers are composed as follows: The first three digits denote the caliber(224, 308, 375 etc). The next three digits give the weight in grains(035, 150, 200 etc). The two letters indicate the type of bullet (HV, FN, SP, HP or HG) and the last three digits, the part number which serves as a double check.

2. Use this table as follows: Find your cartridge in the right hand column. Bullet numbers are in the left hand column. If more than one bullet weight is listed for your cartridge, click on the bullet number to see the individual bullet data profile to determine which is the best bullet choice according to the steps below: 

A.)  Match the bullet length correctly with the twist rate of your handgun and with the intended range distance in mind. Some overlap is permissable but, more than a half to one inch mismatch or 200yds on distance begins affecting external and terminal performance.

B.)  Check that the launch speed is more than what the cartridge can develop.

C.)  Check the bullet protrusion to see if the cartridge will fit your handgun.
