Bullet “Alpha” has a unique structure that differs from all known bullets of this class: a thin obturating belt of the head part enters the rifling of the barrel of the weapon, and a thin-walled skirt of the rear part reduces friction and increases stabilization when the bullet moves in the barrel. This structure gives the bullet a good initial acceleration and increases the accuracy rate.
The unique structure of the Alpha bullet allows it to be loaded backwards: at short distances, such a bullet has a 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.
