HORNADY 45c (.458) 325gr FTX BULLET FLEX-TIP 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.

I just loaded these bullets for the first time I think they will be great for whitetail hunting!

This bullet performs great (accuracy and expansion) in both my Marlin 1895 and my 458 SOCOM. No feeding issues in either.
Graf also had the best sale price.
Shipping was acceptably fast, especially by todays standards.

A great projectile for hunting. Reasonable accuracy at 100 yards out of a 458 SOCOM
Great for old and new

I use these in a 45-70 to take hogs. An original Rolling Block so the pressure must to be low. They expand well at about 1400 fps. I just started loading a 458 socom. As the speed is about the same I gave them I try. They cycle perfectly and I get the same results on hogs, dead in their tracks. Seems odd, shooting the same bullet in a 150 old cartridge with a 120 year old gun then a new black gun and very new cartridge.
