GECO Plus bullet

GECO Plus bullet

The GECO Plus is a precise projectile designed using the latest technology. The GECO bonding technique is characterised by the extremely strong solder joint between the projectile core and jacket. As a result of this the GECO Plus mushrooms with minimum fragmentation and has excellent penetration even in heavy game or if striking bone. The breaking points visible on the jacket control the deformation and ensure the bullets effectiveness.

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.
