HORNADY 45c (.452) 250gr FTX BULLET (450 BUSH.) 50/BX
Hornady® FTX® bullets revolutionized lever gun ballistics, creating a 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.
Hornady® offers the same Flex Tip® technology for handguns that revolutionized lever guns. Typical hollow point pistol bullets deliver good performance at modest velocities, but have a tendency to expand too quickly and sacrifice penetration at the higher velocities achieved with lever action guns.
- PATENTED FLEX TIP® BULLET TECHNOLOGY: Upon impact, the soft tip compresses into the bullet, initiating immediate expansion across a wide range of velocities. Safe to shoot in tubular magazines as well as any other firearm.
- INTERLOCK® RING: The one-piece, high antimony lead core of the FTX® is mechanically locked to the jacket with an InterLock ring. This, along with a specially designed jacket, results in reliable performance and maximum weight retention for deep penetration on large or heavy-bodied game animals.
- BALLISTICALLY EFFICIENT SECANT OGIVE: Pioneered by Hornady,® the secant ogive profile delivers stability, flat trajectories and amazing accuracy.
- SPECIALLY ENGINEERED JACKET: The heavy jacket over the shank of the bullet combined with our proven InterLock® design controls expansion and enhances accuracy.
This is not loaded ammunition.

This bullet functioned perfectly in my AR platform 450 Bushmaster rifle. I believe this will be my standard load on top of Lil-Gun powder.

With some lil’ gun powder got these less than 1 moa at 100yds. Shoot, feed and kill great! Shot a basket buck in the spine approximately 70 yards with my reload, only deer I’ve killed with it so far, but entrance and exit holes were deceiving. Opened up the deer and blew out about 4” of his spine and found the polymer tip in the cavity. Buck literally flipped over on his back upon impact!
another excellent Hornady product

I've been happy so far with my results in testing, but with the outdoor ranges closed and being restricted to 25 yards indoors it's been a bit of a challenge to do meaningful testing but so far middle to near max loadings of Lil'Gun are showing promise.

Load this bullet with Hornady brass and Lil’Gun powder. It is a great combination. Not sure about the stopping power yet, but I have no doubt it will be great.
Designed for Bushmaster & muzzleloaders

IMHO this bullet is the same one used with a sabot for 50 caliber muzzleloaders. I use it for my 450 Bushmaster with Lil-Gun powder to duplicate the Hornady “Black” factory load. Surprisingly accurate I think I will keep using that combination.
