Has anyone played with this one yet? Ive had some severe separation issues with the 300 GN variant under a 100 yards..the bullet fragments quite a bit. Out of my 1895XLR though..they are tack drivers. Amazing accuracy...The new round is touted as keepin it together..Just wondered if anyone has played with em..

Didn't know they were available yet. I haven't seen them in any stores or on line. Where did you find them?

The 250 gr I believe they're talking about is the combo GMX/FTX monoflex bullet. It's brand new and is a partition type bullet. I haven't seen these in stores yet. I haven't seen any loads for it either.

apologies...Was referring to the standard leverevolution hornady 300GN versus the 250GN new one.

I believe the 250 can be ordered here http://www.midsouthshooterssupply.com
It appears that the retailers don't have them yet. Hornady has not even published any of the stats for the round and all retailers say they are on order.
There is no 300gr. Leverevolution. They only have the 325s and soon to have the 250s.

The GMX is not a partition bullet. It's a gilding metal slug designed to work like the Barnes TSX.

The FTX is a cup and core bullet:



The GMX is a monolithic slug with a flex tip:



If the .45 cal 250 grain is anything like the 30 cal GMX bullets, you're not going to blow one up......period.

Ya, I looked high and low for the ballistics but cant find any...Really enjoy the leverevolution accuracy, makes even a tenderfoot like me look good...

*sorry to correct myself once again..325gn not 300. ;)

Just received an email from Hornady and they said they should be in the stores sometime this summer.

Nothing like a definite maybe sometime. ;D

Is the Barnes TSX a flat nose bullet? What are the stats on it? Hornady has proven they can produce a great round and I am sure the 250 monoflex will be one of those.

Anything I can do to stay away from Barnes (who is now owned by the Freedom Group) I will do because they are in bed with the government in trying to do away with lead. The 250 monoflex will not be lead either but at least Hornady is not trying to help the govt. do away with lead all together. Barnes produces a great bullet but I just don't like their politics and that goes a long way with me when deciding what company I support.

Well, thats a shame if Barnes is taking that position because I already have bullets in a number of calibers!!! While pricey, they do deliver ie, open up and pentrate retaining their weight!!!!

But you know, a lot a things aren't nice about being in business and maximizing profits!!! They are just taking advantage of the political situation to increase their sales if what you say is true??? Doesn't make it OK, but it doesn't surprise me!!!

Thanks Ron, that's good to know. :eek: I didn't even know they sold out to Rem!!! :eek:
It's the sole proprietorship thing and family business that helped make them successful. Maybe the Rem management has more to do with their position on lead-free bullets than the old Barnes family????
