Hornady - Flex Tip Technology - 325 Grain 45-70 Government Ammo - 20 Rounds


The .45/70 was introduced by the US Army in 1873 for use in the new trapdoor model Springfield service rifles. It represents the last of the “big bore” rifle calibers before the US adopted smaller, smokeless powder rounds at the end of the century. Despite this, the .45/70, with its ample case capacities and variety of bullet weights, has survived as a sporting cartridge both for long range targets and big game hunting, up to and including large bears. Care should be taken before use of modern performance ammunition in older, antique firearms, but in modern arms like Ruger’s Model No. 1 or proofed rolling and falling block rifles, the modern cartridges deliver devastating results. The flex tip, 325 grain bullet by Hornady, for example, leaves the muzzle at 2050 feet per second but with 3032 foot pounds of energy. This is a modern sporting round and the FTX bullet makes it safe to fire in firearms with tubular magazines, such as modern reproductions of the Winchester 1886. Though capable of longer ranges, it is very popular as a brush gun caliber where engagement distance is very close for the brunt of the caliber’s energy.

Hornady flex tip ammunition provides the optimum mix of ballistic performance and bullet expansion on target, making it a very popular choice for large bore hunters of dangerous, large game. The brand is the one most trusted by sportsmen in the field as well as law enforcement on and off duty, while the FTX bullet is considered the best choice by many when each shot means the world.
