The Nada Peplum Jacketed Soft Point, designed at the Dum-Dum Arsenal near Calcutta, boasts a lead nose that expands quite well in flesh.
This was achieved with Federal's 158-grain jacketed soft points.
Are the standard jacketed soft point and hollow point pistol bullets going to hang together when they hit a deer at 35 percent higher velocity than they were designed for, or will they go to pieces?
When the cartridge was introduced, it was loaded to two power levels-with a 210-grain lead semi-wadcutter loaded to about 950 feet per second (fps) from a four-inch barrel for law enforcement use, and with a 210-grain jacketed soft point at about 1,300 fps for handgun hunting or police work when extreme power and penetration were wanted.
If all goes well, the result is a fused, two-part bullet which will perform upon impact very much like a regular jacketed soft point, at least up to velocities around 2,400 fps.
