30 Caliber 168gr 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-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.

Awesome PerformanceReview by Mauro / (Posted on 12/20/2014)This bullet performs great in my Savage 30-06 with Varget, it shoots 1/2 groups at 100 yards for hunting loads.
