In 2001, Daniel Smitchko (Smitty) opened up his machine shop which offers precision parts made from CNC Swiss Style Lathes, a technologically superior machine that is renowned for its ability to machine extremely small precision parts.
Although the shop experienced continual annual growth, Dan realized that he wouldn’t have complete control over the fate of the shop unless he developed his own product line and wasn’t reliant on outside sources. After contemplating several ideas, he soon realized that he was in the perfect position to combine his passion for precision machining with his obsession for long range hunting. The ability to use the advanced machining capabilities created the perfect atmosphere for creating a technically advanced copper bullet that performs better than any other bullet in terms of trajectory, accuracy, and terminal performance. After quickly coming up with a basic idea, research and testing began. Finally, after one year and 47 bullet revisions later, a bullet had been tweaked to perfection that resulted in a projectile that performed extremely well with a high ballistic coefficient, was extremely accurate and expanded better than expected.
