We test six copper rounds for accuracy. This is part of a project run by Tim Pilbeam where 13 deerstalkers keep diaries of how copper bullets perform for them. Stalkers include Steve Goodwin, Steve Bull, Alison Otway of OtwaysMeatandGame.co.uk, gamekeeper Rob Beeney and David Sadler set about finding out about copper ammunition. We will follow them over the individual voyages of discovery.
In this test, we check ammunition from GECO (.30-06, 136gr), Barnes (150gr), Sako PowerHead Blade (.308, 162gr),and Barnes LRX (6.5 Creedmoor)
