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.
