Muzzle Velocity: 2970 fps.
Traditional and accurate soft point bullet. Excellent all-purpose hunting bullet on small/medium sized game.
Unrivalled accuracy and consistent performance:
All Sako and Tikka rifles and cartridges are tested to guarantee 1 MOA or better accuracy - straight out of the box. Their products are continuously tested for Sako’s high standards on accuracy, performance, stopping power and reliability.
Precision loading of only the best quality components:
Every bullet and case is individually inspected, the deviation of the highest quality single-base powder charge is minimised and the ignition time of the primers remains constant, providing for a quality that exceeds the precision of hand loading.
Due to a proprietary heat treatment method, as well as zero impurities of the case material, Sako's cartridges have the industry’s highest reloadability and pressure resistance, maximizing the lifespan and safety of any rifle.

All hunting loads and bullets are developed at the Sako ballistics laboratory. They are tested during real big game hunts for optimal weight retention and double-diameter mushrooming for maximum impact.
Sako A-Tox Lead free ammunition:
The newly introduced Sako Copperhead and the already well-known Sako Powerhead form the line of lead-free Sako ammunition. Both Powerhead and Copperhead are 100% lead-free copper bullets, designed for even the most demanding hunting purposes.
