About This Hornady 45-70 Government AmmunitionHornady’s LEVERevolution line of ammunition is perfect for use in lever action rifles, because its relatively soft Flex Tip virtually eliminates the chance of accidental ignition occurring in a tubular magazine. This 45-70 Government cartridge’s elastomer tip also makes its profile aerodynamic for enhanced accuracy, and further serves to initiate expansion on impact as it jams deeply within the bullet’s core, even at lower velocities.
The expansion that the FTX bullet provides is controlled by its specially engineered jacket, which is tightly affixed to its high antimony lead core via Hornady’s patented InterLock ring for optimal weight retention during penetration. This round’s bullet compensates nicely for the 45-70 Government’s tendency to drop over longer distances thanks to its secant ogive profile, and also because of its very fast 2,050 fps muzzle velocity. This round is fit for work at the reloading bench courtesy of its brass casing, and certain to perform admirably thanks to its Nebraskan manufacturer’s stringent quality assurance protocol.
