The terminal effect is enhanced by the use of Hornady's own Flex Tip Expanding (FTX) projectile which features a lead core, copper jacket, and hollow cavity covered by a flat-nosed polymer tip. The polymer tip serves as a windshield to shrug off drag as well as a guard that prevents cavity clogging and initiates wide expansion during entry into a target. As the FTX bullet expands, its copper jacket is bound to its lead core via a toothed cannelure; this prevents separation and ensures proper penetration depth to reach vital areas and impress maximum damage upon a threat. At 73 grains, this FTX is heavy for the .223 caliber and should be used with 1:8 twist rate barrels or faster for stability and accuracy.
