Hornady LEVERevolution 45-70 Government Rifle Ammunition features the new Monoflex bullet design. Monoflex bullets are a combination of GMX and FTX bullet technologies. Monoflex bullets are constructed of gliding metal which means they will not separate, and when recovered will have 95 percent or higher weight retention. The combination of weight retention, deep penetration, and unrivaled power make this the most deadly lever action bullet line in the world. The 40 percent more energy than traditional flat points helps in the insane terminal performance. At up to 250 feet per second faster than most lever action loads, you can begin to see the difference in power.
Unfortunately, with the rise in power and change in shape of the lever action bullet you may need to upgrade to a new magazine follower so every bullet feeds properly. These magazines are availble from your gun manufacturer.
