  • Hornady FTX™ Load Notes are Available at Hornady.com

    Grand Island, NE- The same Hornady® FTX™ bullets that are loaded into our legendary LEVERevolution® ammunition are now available to the reloading market. FTX™ Load Notes written specifically for the bullet's unique design can be downloaded for free at hornady.com.

    Hornady FTX™ bullets are the only pointed bullets designed specifically for use in tubular magazines. Patented, state-of-the-industry Flex Tip™ technology makes them safe to shoot in a wide variety of firearms. Their higher ballistic coefficient delivers dramatically flatter trajectories for fantastic downrange energy increases and amazing terminal performance at all ranges. The heavy jacket over the shank of the bullet and famous InterLock™ feature keep the core and jacket physically locked together to ensure high weight retention.

    It's important to note that Hornady® FTX™ bullets have a longer ogive that requires some cartridge cases to be trimmed more than normal to achieve critically important Cartridge Overall Length (C.O.L.). When handloading for leverguns, C.O.L. is critical to proper function, so extra care must be taken to ensure reloaded ammunition matches prescribed specifications.

    FTX™ Load Notes are available for the following cartridges:

    30-30 Win 160 gr FTX
