For use in areas that restrict the use of lead.
Hornady® NTX® bullets provide peerless performance with a non-traditional core material that combines accuracy, reliability and Hornady® quality for use in areas with restrictions on the use of traditional bullets.
Hornady® has made lead core bullets since 1949. Lead is, and always will be an excellent core material that provides density and hard-hitting energy to a vast array of bullets. However, there are regulations in some areas that restrict the use of lead in bullets.
The non-lead core of the NTX,® which is crafted from a frangible copper alloy, features a small space between it and the shaft of the hard polymer tip, just like the V-MAX.® This specially designed cavity allows the copper-colored tip and shaft to build up increased energy upon impact with the target before driving into the bullet's core with increased force, initiating near-instant expansion and explosive fragmentation.
