Woodleigh Weldcore Soft Nose are made from 90/10 gilding metal (90% copper: 10% zinc) 1.6mm thick. All jackets are made by deep drawing through several processes and are specifically profiled internally for optimum jacket wall taper. This gives them the feature of reliable controlled expansion at various impact velocities.
Maximum retained weight is obtained by fusing the pure lead to the gilding metal jacket, hence the name 'Weldcore'. This minimizes fragmentation of the nose section as it mushrooms, so that deep penetration for rapid and humane killing of tough animals is obtained.
We regret to inform our loyal customers that we had a nasty factory fire on Saturday 27th November. Thankfully no one was injured.
Most of the working production machinery was damaged and all the packed stock was burnt. We do have some unwashed & unpolished stock stored in bulk drums, but we have no way of dealing with it at the moment. It will be available at a later date.
Regarding our Woodleigh Load Manuals, they are on a very slow boat and will not arrive until February.
It will take some time to assess the machinery damage and make a plan for the future.
Thank you for all your texts & emails with your messages of support.
Geoff & Shirley McDonald.
