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 rifles.

Hornady® FTX® bullets achieve reliable expansion over a wide range of velocities. Upon impact, the FTX® tip is compressed into the front of the bullet, causing the bullet to expand and transfer immediate energy for a devastating temporary cavity — even at low velocity.


Patented Flex Tip design is safe in all tubular magazines.

Flex Tip technology delivers controlled expansion across a broad range of velocities.

Delivers the flattest trajectories EVER from lever guns.

Jacket design controls expansion and enhances accuracy.
