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 have rebuilt our factory, and are well into the process of rebuilding our production machinery.
Our aim is to start production of new product by end of 2022, though it will be some time before we get our full range back into stock.
Thank you again for your messages of support, and physical help from some amazing true blue Aussies
