30 Caliber 180gr Ballistic Silvertip Bullet (50ct)
Optimal Performance Velocity: 1800-3200 fps
1. Polymer Silvertip
Prevents deformation in the magazine.
2. Lubalox® Exterior Coating
Reduces fouling, pressure, and friction between bullet and bore. Provides longer barrel life, easier cleaning, and enhanced accuracy.
3. Fully Tapered Jacket and Special Lead-Alloy Core
Allows controlled expansion and optimum weight retention at all practical velocity levels.
4. Heavy Jacketed Base
Prevents bullet deformation during firing and acts as a platform for large-diameter mushrooms.
5. Ballistically Engineered Solid Base®
The boat tail configuration combines with the streamlined polymer tip for extreme long-range performance, and makes loading easier.
What is Lubalox®?
Lubalox® is the trade name Winchester uses to describe a black oxide process. It is a very thin oxide bullet coating, often compared to the bluing on a steel firearm.
What are the benefits of Lubalox®?
The primary benefit of Lubalox is reduced barrel fouling. The process creates a surface on the bullet jacket, which increases the number of shots possible between cleanings. Unlike moly-coated bullets, Lubalox-coated bullets leave the barrel residue-free and do not require barrel “seasoning”. Additionally, unlike uncoated bullets that tarnish over time, Lubalox protects the surface of the bullet jacket, keeping it looking like new.
Will Lubalox® harm the gun barrel?
Lubalox does not harm the barrel. Testing shows that the coating often reduces barrel fouling.
Is Lubalox® a Moly coating?
No, it is a very thin oxide coating.

30 Cal 180 BSTReview by PJ-SKY / (Posted on 8/15/2019)I was having a hard time getting my Kimber 84L 3006 to shoot the way I wanted it to. I tried these bullets and was amazed at the accuracy I obtained from them. I am getting a consistent 1/2 MOA at 2850 fps, using 61gr of RL 22, Fed 210 Primer, OAL 3.334. Very hard to beat that with the .507 BC and velocity. At 500 yards, Im still over 2000 pfs.
