The Frontier story!!
Processing was founded in 1994 as an extention of a passion into a business.
Nico Economakis was a keen IPSC shooter who used to cast his own bullets and
also for friends. He soon started to manufacture commercially and eventually
bought industrial machinery. Today, Frontier is one of the leading
manufacturers of complete metal jacketed bullets in the world. The development
of a range of bullets for hunters was born from local demand.
complained that there were very few manufacturers who considered the needs of
African Game hunters and this is where the Game Ranger project was started by
Nico and two well-known South African hunters, brothers
The designs of the Game Ranger bullet was based on the principle that maximum straight-line penetration is reached by the use of a very heavy bullet, shot at slower velocities. The blunt shape of the bullet is designed to cause maximum trauma. This bullets was designed to be a heavy-duty big game stopper. The first bullet in the range was the .458, 600gr for the Winchester Magnum. Improving the stopping power of this cartridge tremendously. Almost two years of testing and re-designing went into the project before the design team was happy with what the bullet could do.
From the 600gr
458 CS Game Ranger, the other bullets followed in 416, 375, 9,3, 30
The manufacturing of electroplated bullets has come a long way since those early years, culminating in what we at Frontier believe to be of the best big game bullets out there - the CS Game Ranger range.
