The Hornady® InterBond® bullet uses a proprietary bonding process that holds the core and jacket together. Unlike partitioned or dual-core bullets, where the front core can separate from the bullet mass, the InterBond® bullet holds together in a single destructive mass that delivers a deep, wide wound channel without over-penetrating.
The bonding process, along with a thicker, stiffer jacket, allows InterBond® bullets to retain more than 90% of their mass, even through tough hide and bones. Plus, they immediately expand to more than twice their diameter for maximum energy transfer.
- The sleek polymer tip improves ballistic performance, accuracy and initiation of expansion.
- Solid, one-piece lead core won’t separate. The bonded design ensures the bullet achieves controlled expansion with virtually no fragmentation and the core will never separate from the jacket.
- Controls expansion to form a large, flat mushroom and a wide wound channel over twice the bullet diameter.
- Necessary to retain weight and contributes to expansion of over twice the bullet diameter.
