Optimized for big game hunting, the new lead-free Powerhead Blade was developed to meet the needs of the most demanding hunters. The ideal choice for hunters who prefer lead-free alternatives and want to minimize meat loss, the one advantage of monolithic bullets is their high strength which translates into near 100% weight retention. The Powerhead series offers market-leading lead-free terminal performance and exceptional capability to expand dependably in different situations and hit velocities. The terminal Blade Tip, together with its 5-stage bullet expansion architecture, expands the Sako Powerhead Blade bullet even at the lowest impact velocities (long ranges) while also ensuring high resistance against bone hits and close-range shooting situations.
