At the SHOT Show in Las Vegas, Sellier & Bellot unveiled the new rifle cartridge line with eXergy Blue bullets, that represents the next step in the modern evolution of rifle ammunition. In times when attention to the environment is becoming increasingly important, Sellier & Bellot offers modern lead-free ammo. The core of the project is the solid copper eXergy bullet featuring a boat-tail and a very pointed nose that guarantees an extremely flat trajectory. The blue plastic tip – after which the cartridge is named – enhances expansion at all ranges, while the solid copper construction maximizes weight retention and energy transfer.
