The major difference between the two varmint bullets is the internal construction of each. The traditional Ballistic Tip® bullet has a lead core while the BTLF has a Fragmenting Copper Core™. The Fragmenting Copper Core™ results in immediate transfer of energy upon impact due to the frangibility of the bullet. The BTLF also has a flat base compared to that of a boat tail base of the Ballistic Tip® bullet.Tags: Ballistic Tip Lead-Free, Ballistic Tip® Varmint
