Expansion Redefined

Lethal extreme-range bullet performance doesn't look like the 2x expansion hunters see at conventional distances—it's not supposed to. With petals that open instantly and peel back uniformly every time, the Terminal Ascent transfers more energy to the animal on impact and carves straight, deadly wound channels at all velocities.

Total Performance

With the combined power of robust bonding, the Slipstream polymer tip and AccuChannel grooving, Terminal Ascent achieves what no other bullet can—true all-range accuracy and terminal performance.

Slipstream Tip

With an exclusive hollow core, the Slipstream polymer tip initiates expansion of Terminal Ascent’s bonded jacket and core at distances far beyond the effective limits of comparable bullets.

AccuChannel Groove Technology

Although typical bullet grooving can hit ballistic coefficients hard, Terminal Ascent uses AccuChannel groove technology to minimize drag while providing better accuracy across a wider range of rifles.
