Taipan Bullets are one of the flattest shooting bullets in the industry Taipan Bullets are identical in design to Taipan Target bullets except utilize a thinner Precision jacket for rapid expansion during game applications. Taipan Hunting Bullets are designed to penetrate 2-3″ and then begin to expand and create a massive wound cavity up to 15″. The hydrostatic shock causes most animals to drop immediately. Taipan Hunting Bullets incorporate a secant ogive design which allows the bullet to experience less drag as it travels to the target. This reduced drag is why the Taipan bullets shoots flatter, experiences less wind-drift, and has a higher retained velocity than all others. A favourite load technique for bullets is touching the rifling for single-shot applications, although some rifles may prefer as much as .150″ from the rifling. Taipan Bullets are extremely popular for long range hunting applications. Built with highly consistent Precision Bullet jackets, most favoured by custom bullet makers.
