Starfire™ is the brainchild of Tom Burczynski, the “dean” of high performance handgun bullet designers and a frontrunner in the new era of advanced bullet design. The key to its success is the broad, extremely reliable expansion inherent in each Starfire™ caliber. Created by a patented rib and flute design inside the deep, hollow-point cavity, the bullet hyper-expands to nearly twice its original diameter upon impact, delivering tremendous stopping power on target. Starfire’s average penetration of 9 –14 inches translates to more energy expended on the target and less wasted on landscape downrange.
While the bullet design of all Starfire™ cartridges facilitates smooth and reliable feeding in semi-automatic handguns, the bullet ogive and propellant impulse of the 9 mm Starfire™ have been specifically engineered to provide troublefree, completely reliable feeding in fully automatic weapons. This enables the use of high-performance hollow-point cartridges that feed just as dependably as ball ammunition when the full-auto setting is necessary.
Pistol Hunting with Starfire™ Getting within range of big game with a handgun takes considerable effort and skill. When you get there, you need to have confidence that your ammunition is going to get the job done accurately, powerfully and reliably. Starfire™ earns perfect scores in all three criteria.
