OUTER EDGE PROJECTILES Hunting 22cal 57gr Ball Bearing Tip (1:8) 50pk

In Stock

Outer Edge Projectiles manufacture and a wide range of CNC machined copper premium grade high performance hunting and target bullets and are 100% Australian owned.

Outer Edge hunting projectiles are not only stunningly accurate, they address the shortcomings of both old style first generation copper bullets, and traditional jacketed lead bullets alike in relation to terminal performance at both short and longer ranges. The critical point for any hunting bullet’s performance is what happens when the bullet hits the target – not the weight of the bullet in the magazine, or the velocity or muzzle energy when it leaves the barrel!

Their hunting bullets feature aggressive ogives and the results in the field are spectacular, with devastating drop to the shot performance on all game from goats and pigs to sambar, all the way up to water buffalo.

  • The 57gr punches well above its weight and with well-placed shots is capable of taking medium game with a shot just behind the front leg into the heart lung area, head or neck. However, if used in a high velocity 224 such as the 22 250 with a 1 in 8 twist barrel or a 22 Creedmoor, some fragmentation can occur at close range. In a 222 or 223 with 1:8 barrels the 57gr will allow these cartridges to take on medium game up to 200 metres with well-placed shots.
