Re: FAIL SAFE BULLETS

Failsafes are being phased out in favor of the new XP3 Win bullet. Failsafes are harder to keep good quality control because of all the steps necessay to manufacture. They seem to work on large animals where deep penetration is desired. Not the best bc in the world.

    The Fail Safe bullets were very costly to manufacture.

    A prem heavy big game bullet. Made to bust shoulder blades of elk/moose/bear.

    The Partition Gold is another heavy game bullet with better BC.

    Both very accurate .

    Perhaps it's because it was already on it's way out before the OP (2006) ...

    From what I can find they stopped production on the XP3 as well which is too bad because they are an extremely well designed bullet.

    the 160 gr Fail Safe in 7mm Rem Mag works on moose, although I prefer the 180 gr 30 cal in the 300 RUM, just dumps moose so much faster ...... still got some original 180 gr Lubalox Fail Safes and a bunch of the Combined Technology moly coated bullets along with their 180 gr Partition Gold bullets , still prefer the Swift A-Frame in in 8mm Rem Mag for moose, now that was a perfect combo.....
