Negative.

As a hint: the caliber is .308 and pay attention to the bottom of the bullet in the one snap as there is a very unique mark.

Wow - very close! Not Federal TROPHY Bonded Tip, but it is Federal TACTICAL Bonded Tip.

But I will give it to you because the bullet is almost identical, the only differences are the tips and the weight (Trophy is 165gr and Tactical is 168gr). Of course in a court of law or the scientific community I would have to say "no soup for you!". LOL

This is actually a fantastic round. It penetrates and really stays true.

Can we know how you came to your answer of Trophy Bonded Tip?

The "T" on the base of the bullet reminded me of the Trophy Bonded Tip, and I knew they were nickel plated. I haven't run across the Tactical Bonded Tip.

Yeah the "T" is a unique identifier for sure. Putting the projectiles though auto glass while keeping centered is easy. These really stay true. I understand the 165gr trophy hunting variety is a knock down round.

:agree: That was my guess with its terrible expansion rate.

ARGH Buffman! These are your Winchester Silvertips! Thought I'd throw 'em up since you guessed them earlier :)

Nah. But you're in the right family (Winchester).

I would have guessed "T" series too. It is the same as the old "Black Talon" bullet but without the black coating.

Not a T series variant of Ranger or PDX1.

They are Winchester's 240gr platinum tip hollow point (PTHP) bullets. They sport a notched reversed tapered jacket with a 2-part hollow point cavity. Great for black bear, boar, mule deer, etc..

You have larger photos to help view the bullets?

The second from the left appears to be a Hornady bullet (red plug).
