Cartridge portrait: new GECO DTX line, especially designed for sport shooters who like to train a lot – With video!

"Where excitement starts" – that's the new claim for GECO's ammunition since spring 2021. But it's not just the claim that's new, but also the logo, the packaging and the website. But this is also accompanied by new products that are intended to live up to the brand's price/performance promise. Especially for sport shooters with high ammunition consumption, GECO offers the relatively new DTX cartridge line: these are various full metal jacket (FMJ) loads for handguns and long guns, naturally in reliable GECO quality, but at an attractive price. For long guns, the two GECO DTX version are available in .308 Win with 150 gr bullet and .223 Rem. FMJ with 55 gr bullet, for handguns there is the GECO DTX in the internationally widespread 9mm Luger caliber with a bullet weight of 115 gr.

One of the three new DTX loadings: the GECO DTX cartridge in ..308 Winchester caliber, with 150-grain full metal jacket bullet.

In addition, a few background information about the new packages: a conscious decision was made at GECO to make the pack sizes as practical and hands-on as possible for shooters: while the .308 Win. and the 9mm Luger come in the market-standard 50-round packs, the new .223 Rem packs contain 150 rounds.
