Pre-Fluted

Posted in: Shooters Glossary

This is a unique process that not every manufacturer will do, but some very specialized ammo producers will pre-flute their projectiles as a way to ensure the bullet impacts and expands evenly and reliably. The fluting is a deliberate and measured imperfection milled or filed into the projectile, essentially weakening the projectile in a very specific place to a very specific depth. This fluting will be done in a uniform pattern around the rim of the hollow point, so that the whole projectile is affected and will expand reliably when the bullet hits its target.
