The Beta bullet has a unique structure that differs from all known bullets of this class: the presence of a front belt in the head part centers the bullet in the bore, the second obturator belt enters the rifling, and the thin-walled skirt of the rear part reduces friction and increases stabilization when the bullet moves in the barrel. Such a structure, having balanced centers of mass and pressure, gives the bullet a good initial acceleration and increases the accuracy rate.
The unique structure of the “Beta” bullet allows it to be loaded backwards: at short distances, such a bullet has the maximum expansion effect, turning the bullet inside out and transferring 100% of its energy to the target. Of course, the aerodynamic qualities of the bullet with this method of firing are significantly reduced.
