Following our tradition to innovate, STEYR MANNLICHER takes the challenges of the future. To avoid pollution of meat and environment, lead ammunition is banned more and more from hunting. The range of lead free ammunition is already wide but there was no optimised rifle for this new requirements yet.
The LEAD FREE Editions from STEYR MANNLICHER are the first rifles especially designed for today’s lead free ammunition. From now on they are available for the STEYR MANNLICHER SM12® and STEYR MANNLICHER CL II models, in .30-06 Spr.
The new barrel profile with six lands and grooves is optimized for solids. The less flexible solids proceed much more evenely into the barrel due to the smaller diameter of the fields.
Following our tradition to innovate, STEYR MANNLICHER takes the challenges of the future and presents with its lead free editions, the first rifles especially designed for the use with today’s lead free ammunition.
More calibers to come!
