Nosler, the world's foremost bonded bullet manufacturer, loads the 22-250 with the Bonded Performance .224 caliber, 64 grain Bonded Solid Base bullet. The 64gr Bonded Performance bullet is designed to maximize the terminal performance of .22 caliber rifle cartridges. While most .22 caliber bullets are designed to be highly frangible, the Bonded Solid Base is designed for controlled expansion, high weight retention, and deep penetration. The Bonded Solid Base makes an excellent medium game hunting bullet for states where .22 caliber rifles are legal for hunting as well as personal defense.
The Bonded Solid Base bullet features a Protected Point design for reliable feeding in both bolt action and semi-automatic rifles. The tapered jacket ensures controlled expansion while the proprietary bonding process prevents fragmentation and guarantees high weight retention. The AccuBond bonding process welds the copper jacket to the lead core to virtually eliminate the possibility of core-jacket separation. Solid Base construction supports the mushroom for wide wound channels and deep, straight-line penetration.
