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 9.3x74 R

9.3 x 74 R

The 9.3 x 74 R is the “queen of the rimmed cartridges”. It is suitable for break-open guns, no matter whether break-open rifle, over-and-under shotgun/rifle combination, drilling or double rifle. In combination guns hunters like to use it with a smaller cartridge suitable for roe deer (e. g. in a barrel insert). 

This calibre is the companion version of the 9.3 x 62, and they both were introduced at about the same time in 1905. 

The GECO Softpoint load with a 255 gr bullet weight is popular for drive hunting. Beyond that, the GECO Plus bullet with 255 gr is being produced and for all hunters shooting lead-free ammunition we offer GECO ZERO with a weight of 184 gr.
