Federal Premium introduces 200-yard accurate muzzleloading bullet

Posted April 30, 2014 by muzzlevelocity in Ammunition



Federal Premium Ammunition has announced the release of a new .50 caliber muzzleloading bullet the company claims is capable of 200-yard accuracy.

According to an April 24 press release issued by Federal, the new Trophy Copper Muzzleloader Bullet and B.O.R. Lock MZ System is an all-copper, non-sabot, bullet designed to seat consistently from shot to shot and scrub fouling from the bore upon firing.

From Federal:

Federal Premium® is redefining modern in-line performance with the all-new Trophy® Copper Muzzleloader Bullet. Its exclusive B.O.R. Lock MZ™ System provides outstanding accuracy in a non-sabot design that’s easy to load, scrubs fouling from the breech and ensures consistent bullet seating. The system’s foundation is a polymer cup that’s permanently attached to the bullet base. The force of ignition pushes the cup forward onto raised bands along the bullet shank, expanding its diameter. This engages the rifling and seals the bore, optimizing velocity and accuracy. The rear of the B.O.R. Lock MZ cup features a hard, fiber-reinforced polymer ring that scours fouling from the breech as the bullet is pushed into place. This decreases the need to clean between shots and makes it easy to seat the bullet at the exact same depth for every shot. Because there’s no bulky sabot, required loading force averages about half that of most sabot bullets. Like other projectiles in the proven Trophy Copper line, the copper-alloy bullet features a polymer tip, with a deep, hollow cavity and skiving that allows for consistent, devastating expansion.
