30 Carbine 85gr Xtreme Cavitator Ammunition
The Lehigh Xtreme Cavitator bullet utilizes unique geometry to take advantage of the super cavitation effect. This unique geometry combines a square nose, concave sides, and a wide base to create a pressure spike (a long air cavity behind the projectile) as it passes through a media, eliminating drag and ultimately translating to deeper penetration with a well defined wound channel. Not satisfied with traditional projectiles, Lehigh combined the Defender and Penetrator technologies to use the nose of the projectile to redirect hydraulic energy radially, creating a larger permanent wound cavity than any expanding projectile. The marriage of a concave surface to a square nose makes this unrivaled when it comes to barrier penetration by dividing the strength of the barrier evenly across the projectile, instead of having one concentrated focal point. The end result is a conservation of energy from a square nose to breech entry barriers, to a concave surface directing hydraulic energy outward, creating an enormous wound cavity and blanketing the projectile with a boundary of air, reducing drag and allowing for better penetration than traditional options.
There are many excellent older cartridges with performance constrained by the metallurgy available for the firearms at the time they were designed. Some are so good, as in the 45-70 Government, they have been updated for modern pressures and re-released as modern cartridges, others, like the 32 ACP will probably remain with low operating pressures, due to the number of guns in existence.
