External and terminal ballistics, Piet du Plessis of DW Bullets has developed a range of high performance solid brass bullets for the discerning handloader/hunter.
DW Raptor Brass Hollow Point
These bullets, designed for problem and non-meat animals, also feature the precisely calculated flat nosed profile, but with a cavity designed to expand explosively as four petals in a star pattern at around 50mm of penetration, creating massive trauma while the solid base continues in a straight line for deep penetration.
DW Flat Nose (Dangerous Game Brass)
The flat nosed profile is specifically designed on precise calculations to provide incredibly deep, straight-line penetration. This bullet has a remarkably high BC (0,628 on the .485 calibre)
DW HI Impact (Enhanced System Projectile)
An all-new design, this bullet with step-down meplats is specially designed to deliver a progressive impact on game. The first is on impact, another when the wound channel expands with the second step, a third when the third meplat enters and cuts a passage in the tissue, the fourth as the wound channel expand. The fifth when an almost calibre-size hole is punched through skin and bone. It cuts a calibre size wound channel right rough the body and leaves two large openings for bleeding out.
The DW Torpedo Brass Bullet is a very aerodynamic projectile that is both striking and very effective. The shape ensures smooth and consistant feeding in a bolt action rifle and combines deep penetration with low barrel pressure and fouling.
DW Ranger (Brass Bullet with Round Nose)
The DW Ranger is a balanced projectile with a rounded nose and wadcutter shoulder to ensure a calibre-size wound. A crimping groove enables the handloader to crimp the bullet in place so recoil does not shift it into the case.
