Hornady developed their own special bullet for their Subsonic line of ammunition: the Sub-X. This 175 grain bullet features the polymer Flex Tip, which has a flat nose profile for optimal functionality in lever-action rifles. The Flex Tip is positioned over a deep nose cavity, into which it rams during impact to yield wide positive expansion.
The Sub-X’s grooved jacket is designed to facilitate expansion following impact velocities as low as 900 fps, which this round accomplishes at ranges beyond 200 yards. At higher velocities you can count on the Sub-X’s toothed cannelure and InterLock ring to prevent core/jacket separation.
This cartridge hits a muzzle velocity of 1,050 out of a 24” barrel – shorter barrel, slower muzzle velocity. Hornady’s Subsonic ammo is quiet even if your rifle hasn’t got a suppressor, and its special propellant is formulated to reduce muzzle flash.
