Rifle Ammo of the Year

Rifle ammunition of the year –  Sako Powerhead Blade 

This ammunition meets the needs of the most demanding lead-free fieldsports enthusiasts. 

The unique Tri-Blade Tip design, together with the reaction chamfer, provides immediate bullet expansion initiation and optimised mushrooming upon impact at various shooting distances, no matter the size of the animal. Due to its refined design, the bullet also has a high ballistic coefficient for a flatter trajectory. 

Pure copper has unbeatable characteristics in ductility. This leads to improved mushrooming at low velocities of long-range shooting and makes it the bullet of choice for the shooter looking for a lead-free option without compromising performance.
