GECO Softpoint bullet

GECO Softpoint bullet

Thousands of roe deer have been shot with the legendary GECO Softpoint bullet which is suitable for universal use and in almost any hunting situation. It responds reliably in the game’s body and has good target ballistic effectiveness. The thin walled jacket of the bullet is the secret of this successful design, deformation is initiated by the marked lead tip and then the jacket responds to the increased resistance, even with heavy game the deformation process remains well controlled.

GECO centerfire rifle cartridges in caliber 8x57 IS

8 x 57 IS

In 1905, the 8 x 57 IS was developed from the old military cartridge 8 x 57 I – the “S” stands for spitzer bullet. This universally usable calibre can be optimally used for all game occurring in Europe, because as a rule there is less haematoma formation with it.

With the 185 gr Softpoint bullet, the 196 gr GECO Plus bullet and the 139 gr, lead-free GECO Zero, GECO is offering a broad range of this popular calibre.

For training and also competition, there is also the 187 gr GECO sports bullet in a 50 pack.
