50. Cal. Thor Lightning Ballistic Tips: 300 & 250
When you purchase the 50. Caliber Thor Lightning Ballistic Tip ammo, you are purchasing a one-size-fits-all bullet. While these bullets are tight fitting, they don’t require bore-specific sizing. They also have a quality conical that doesn’t fragment when shot.
Thor Lightning Ballistic Tip Materials
The 50. Thor Lighting Ballistic Tip bullets are 100% copper full-bore ammo. Because this ammunition is full-bore, it means these bullets are true-to-size 50. cal. Instead of a .45 with a ½” sabot. The copper also helps decrease lead poisoning caused by traditional lead bullets fragmenting into the animal.
A Better Ammo Design
Barns manufactures this ammo. It uses the Barns X Bullet® platform and expansion technology. This technology increases the expansion of the shot by 30% and creates a perfect non-fragmented mushroom that retains more than 95% of the bullet’s original weight. The superior performance of this bullet results in more internal damage when the ammo hits an animal and better blood trails.
A Faster Bullet
Because of the design of these bullets, they accurately shoot 75-100 FPS faster than a Powerbelt. This increased speed is due to the seal around the bore that results from the hallow base expanding when fired, which seals the bore and grips the rifle.
A Cleaner Muzzleloader Bullet
Unlike other Muzzleloader bullets, the Thor Lightning Ballistic Tip ammo seals itself, which means it doesn’t need a plastic sabot or any patching. Because these materials aren’t in the ammunition, it leaves the barrel cleaner, which increases accuracy and reduces the need to clean between shots.
