Sellier & Bellot Ammunition has a semi-jacketed bullet with a SOFT POINT CUT-THROUGH EDGE (SPCE) in the jacket which partially locks the lead core at the same time. The bullet effect depends on the target resistance. It gets deformed in light game to a lesser extent than in heavy game. It is appropriate for clawed game hunting.

Most 8mm Mauser ammo is loaded to a very weak standard. Thankfully, S&B has a full power load. I use this round for taking manatees in SW Florida. We call them "Swamp Dolphins" here, and they are truly massive. You really need a 200 grain bullet at a respectable velocity to take these behemoths. The 196 grain SPCE is perfect for this application. It penetrates deep, and is not deflected by their thick hides. One shot, one kill. These fish are best grilled with an orange glaze, and a successful "Swamp Dolphin" hunt is a reason to celebrate. Thank S&B for making this possible.
