Product Information

45c (.452) 245gr SP InterLock® Bullet (450 BM)

Hornady's traditional line of bullets feature exposed lead tips for controlled expansion and hard-hitting terminal performance. Most have their pioneering secant ogive design — one of the most ballistically efficient profiles ever developed. Most feature Hornady's exclusive InterLock® design — a raised ring inside the jacket that is embedded in the bullet's core that keeps the core and jacket locked together during expansion to retain mass and energy.

  • INNER GROOVES: Strategically weaken the upper section of the jacket, ensuring consistent, controlled expansion, even at long range.
  • TAPERED JACKET: Jacket thickness is precisely controlled for expansion at all velocities.
  • ONE-PIECE CORE: Does not separate like two-piece divided cores. The InterLock® retains more mass and energy for deep penetration and large, consistent wound channels that ensure quick, clean kills.
  • CANNELURE: Provides accurate and consistent crimping and also works with InterLock® ring to ensure the core and jacket remain locked during expansion.
  • INTERLOCK® RING: The raised InterLock® ring is embedded in the bullet's core, ensuring the core and jacket are locked in one piece during expansion to retain mass and energy.
This is not loaded ammunition.

good for 450 bushmaster

By Paul H. on Mar 21, 2023
This bullet worked well in my 450 Bushmaster. It fed reasonably well in my AR platform rifle. It failed only once as compared to the 250 gr Hornaday flex tip. I believe the 250 gr. will be my primary bullet in this cartridge. I do not have a clear idea of its accuracy potential yet.

These work really well!

I bought these to hunt with. They shoot and feed very well in my home built budget gas gun. In January I will take it to Alabama to hunt deer and hogs out to 100 yards. Right now I am getting 1.5" groups at 100 yards. Plenty good enough, but am adjusting trying get a better group. But I believe this is it. A real good bullet for the 450 Bushmaster I am told by those that have used it.

Good price
