GECO ZERO bullet

GECO ZERO bullet

GECO ZERO is GECO’s newest development. It distinguishes itself with premium accuracy and outstanding stopping power – and is completely lead-free! This highly innovative jacketed bullet has two tin cores. Assisted by the hollow-point design, the pre-fragmented front core disintegrates instantly upon contact with the targeted animal and releases a large portion of its energy to quickly bring it down. Together with the jacket, the rear core remains a stable slug to penetrate and provide a certain exit wound. This makes GECO ZERO an excellent choice especially on light to medium game.

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.
