The only way to improve on the 160 FTX for me would be to make legal in the Condor Zone. Monoflex does that. I appreciate Hornady's efforts.Dr. A said:The only difference I might see would be penetration on a larger animal, but not sure if that would apply either. It will be interesting to see if they are a success. I have a hard time believing that FTX could be improved on. I know I am perhaps not in the majority on that opinion.
Oh, I forgot to say that I would appreciate their efforts even more if they would publish data for this bullet.Bob A said:The only way to improve on the 160 FTX for me would be to make legal in the Condor Zone. Monoflex does that. I appreciate Hornady's efforts.
All of this info is moot in areas where you can't use lead bullets. The monoflex has the FTX beat as it's the monoflex or ????BillyHill said:This is just my take on the 140 monoflex but I just don't see the point in a levergun. The 160 grn ftx retains more energy at 200 and 300 yds and even though the 140s are faster at the muzzle there is no significant advantage in long range trajectory (according to hornadys factory load specs.) I think we are better off with the 160 grn ftx, but that is just my opinion. If they work well in your gun and shoot good groups please let me know.
OOPS, corrected the number. Important thing is they are not more expensive than the GMX like some people were wondering might happen.Bob A said:That is incredible news.
Are you sure they aren't 50 to a box instead of 100?
