Bullet Ballistics Information
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-diamater 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.

Dime Sized GroupsReview by Ethan W. / (Posted on 11/28/2016)I have not had a more accurate round than your silver tip for reloading. You made it easy to start with your all your data on the web for free. My AR with 55 grain Ballistic Silvertips shoots dime sized groups at 100 yards I just want to thank you for that.
VihtaVuori and the Ballistic Silvertip 22 Caliber 55 Grain BulletReview by ABQ_Hatrick / (Posted on 5/27/2015)I shoot a CZ 550 550 Varmint is fitted with a 25.5″ heavy barrel and fitted with a Grey Laminate stock and a Red fiels AO 4X24 target scope, bringing the rifles total weight to 11.5lbs. I started my hand load with the Nosler Ballistic Silvertip 22 Caliber 50 Grain Bullet, RP once fired cases, Fed Primers, Vihtavuori N140. I only knew Vihtavuori from reputation and the Nosler Ballistic Silvertip Bullet coated in Lubalux. (CTBST) from what I read.
Starting at the min load I worked up a load starting at .5 grn increments. After shooting and documenting. I found my best groups around .25" The third round I went up and down at .01 grn increments. I found none of my hand load groups were greater than .25". The smallest groups being in the .10" range. Once I had a grouping of .10 I worked on the OAL.
All primers were inspected for pressure deformation. I worked up a hand load that was in the .30" groups at 200 yards. My Chronograph is measuring 4100FPS Avg. +- 30fps.
I have done a lot of reloading, I have had nothing but Outstanding performance from this Bullet in 22 cal and .30 cal. I Recommend it if your looking to hand load Varmint rounds. Beside being insanely accurate. This bullet is devastating when varmint hunting. If your pelt hunting DO NOT USE. The exit wound on a jack rabbit at 200 yards, Vaporized the rabbits rib cage and front leg on the exit side. It was devastating bullet wound. Keep that in mind when planning hunting with it.
