Nielsen Sonic Lead Free Hunting (x50) – .224 50gr (slow twist) (BC G1 .150)


Compared with other ammunition Sonic Ballistic is able to achieve a higher speed, a lower starting pressure and far less friction

In contrast to most other projectiles available, Sonic Ballistic is not cast or pressure-moulded, but turned from brass on a highly precise CNC lathe. Therefore, there is only brass in the projectile.

Since we produce our projectiles through advanced CNC technology it is possible for us to produce the projectiles at a highly competitive price.

Hunt is our primary projectile intended for hunting. The basic constrution is similar to that of our other projectile, Semihunt. However, in Hunt, a brass wedge is inserted in the front of the projectile. This wedge serves three main purposes. The first purpose is that it greatly increased aerodynamics, which reduces drag and thereby results in a relatively greater velocity on longer distances. The second purpose is that, on impact, the wedge is mechanically pushed into the hollowpoint, thereby needing less force to fragment the front of the projectile. The third function of the wedge, is smooth and flawless magazine feeding, as the tip of the wedge prevents jamming in the magazine.

Hunt has a significantly longer effective range than projectiles such as Semihunt. This is because the projectile loses far less velocity in flight, combined with less required force for fragmentation, due to the wedge. Therefore, we recommend the use of Hunt projectiles for all distances, but believe that it is required for longer distances.

Like both Target and Semihunt, Hunt has a series of ribs around the body of the projectile. These ribs ensure a tight seal, preventing blow-by of the propellant gases behind the projectile, while minimizing the contact area between the barrel and the projectile. The ribs are quickly deformed, resulting in reduced friction between projectile and barrel. On the picture below this is clearly visible. It is displayed how the ribs are pushed away by the rifling, while the body of the projectile is largely untouched. This means that a relatively small portion of the surface of the projectile is in contact with the barrel and thus that friction is minimal.
