Product Information

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.

Hornady 160gr FTX

By Wayne A. on Aug 10, 2023
These bullets are very accurate and increase the lethal range of the ole 30-30. Highly effective.


By Teresa S. on Jul 12, 2023
Great service, quick shipping, and answer any questions quickly. What else can you expect, will be our go-to supplier for components we don't keep on hand.

Great bullet, but not for 300 blk

By Phillip B. on Jun 26, 2023
I bought these for some 300 blk handloads. The only issue is that the shape does not allow for an overall length that will work with normal AA1680 powder charges. I will still be able to use them for some subsonics with pistol powders, so I am still excited to see what they do.

Makes my 30-30 come back to life

By Roger B. on Mar 24, 2023
I retired my old 30-30 for years and my grandson wanted to shoot it for deer season but he could not get a good group so we loaded up some of this ftx and did a little load development and now he’s shooting very good groups and he took his first deer with it; So I may have lost my 30-30 but for a kid to get his first deer it may be worthwhile

Hornady 308 160 grain FTX bullets

By Ken C. on Mar 06, 2023
I have shot 30-30 Winchester 94's and Marlin 336's for decades but can no longer see open sights well enough to ethically hunt deer. Now with a scoped Marlin 336C I can see well and place these handloaded FTX bullets into full magazine 3 inch groups at 200 yards. My effective point blank range with my Marlin is now 250 yards using max published loads of Lever Evolution powder. Drops big deer and cow elk with good shot placement. Just the ticket for real world hunting with a 30-30. Very good bullet performance on the handful of game I've shot with it.

Great 👍 shooting Bullet!!!

By Dennis F. on Feb 25, 2023
Great shooting Bullet out of a 30-30

Hornady 160 FTX

By Larry D. on Jan 04, 2023
Excellent accuracy and extended my kill range to 300 yards with my Winchester 94AE. I have consistently rung an 18-inch metal plate with the highest setting on the rear sight at over 500 yards when they first came out. Outstanding! USMC Rifle Expert 1969.

Hornady 160 Gr,FTX

By Stephen B. on Dec 01, 2020
I load all of my own ammunition and for my 3030 this is the best bullet I've found for white tail deer I have used in my Henry rifle. It also performs well in my 308 and 3036 with proper loading.

Hornady 160gr FTX bullets

By David A. P. on Jul 29, 2020
Can't wait to reload 30-30 WIN with these bullets! Price was economical and shipping time was okay, considering the pandemic. Read nothing but good things about the capability of these bullets when paired with LVR powder.

.30-30 born again

By SCOTT M. on Jun 26, 2020
I have been impressed with Hornady's efforts to make spitzer like bullets for these old cartridges. I loaded this bullet in new brass for my Win 94 and have not been disappointed in the performance. Thanks for giving this some reach that it never had.

New life in an old 94

By Thomas P. on Sep 09, 2019
These bullets really wake up my old 94. Dead accurate chambers easy and hits hard.

Hornady 160 gr FTX

By Mark L. on Apr 26, 2019
Always one of my favorite bullets. With the LVR powder and the added FPS gains it can't be beat.

30-30 Tube Loading solved

By Steve L. on Mar 28, 2019
These bullets solve the age old problem of loading pointed bullets in the 30-30, not to mention the higher velocities and greater accuracy down range.

Hornady 160 gr. FTX

By Larry R. on Mar 26, 2019
Although Hornady advertised this bullet used with IMR 8208 would make a .30-30 a tack driver, I assume this is achieved using a scope on the rifle, but since I shoot open sights, tack driving accuracy is not there for me, but I achieve unbelievable accuracy without a scope. Formally, when I went deer hunting, I always grabbed my Winchester Mod 70 because the factory bullets for my Winchester 94 .30-30 were always fliers. If I got any on paper I counted myself lucky. After I started using the combination recommended by Hornady, I can hit an eight inch steel gong at two hundred yards with every shot.

Very accurate in my Marlin. Will buy again

30-30 performance

By Cameron Z. on Nov 16, 2018
They provide a real performance boost to the 30-30. and they expand at lower velocities which increases the range.

Good choice for .30 Remington

By Gary H. on Oct 01, 2018
This bullet make an excellent cartridge for my Remington Model 8. No feeding issues and great accuracy compared to others that I have tried.

Brush Gun Evolution

By Michael P. on May 26, 2012
I started loading the FTX for my Marlin 336C and was amazed at both accuracy (3/4"@100) and the extended range (225+ effective) Loading data was hard to find but 28.5 grains Reloder15 performed just like everyone claimed. Hornady has always been my favorite projectile maker and the FTX is a solid addition to their already impressive selection...
