Hornady� FTX� bullets revolutionized lever-gun ballistics, creating a whole new level of performance for these popular firearms. Lever-gun enthusiasts can now harness the accuracy, power and long-range performance of a tipped bullet that�s safe to load in tubular magazines. The Flex Tip,� combined with the Hornady� pioneered secant ogive design, creates an aerodynamic bullet with a thinner, tapered front section and extended bearing surface for much higher ballistic coeffi cients. The FTX� flies faster and flatter than traditional lever-gun bullets, resulting in improved accuracy at ranges well beyond what was historically common. The one-piece, high antimony lead core of the FTX� bullet is locked to the jacket with an Interlock� ring, resulting in reliable performance and deep penetration on large or heavy-bodied game animals. Designed to perform at muzzle velocities from 1,600 to 2,600 fps, FTX� bullets are ideal for hunters and shooters looking to give their lever gun new life. Features: Design Patented Flex Tip design is safe in all tubular magazines. Technology Flex Tip technology delivers controlled expansion across a broad range of velocities. Trajectory Delivers the flattest trajectories EVER from lever guns. Jacket Jacket design controls expansion and enhances accuracy.
