This round’s 4,000 fps muzzle velocity out of a 24” test barrel is fast. That’s because the NTX weighs a mere 35 ounces, and also because Hornady’s Superformance series cartridges are engineered to boost muzzle velocity by 100 to 200 fps without added recoil, chamber pressure, fouling or temperature sensitivity. Prepare to witness laserlike trajectories when you fire this ammo – perfect for small and nervous critters.
The NTX features a thin and concentric Advanced Manufacturing Process jacket to promote great rotational stability, and its polymer tip creates the sharp and clean meplat the bullet needs to fly straight toward its target. The NTX’s core is made of frangible copper alloy; when the tip drives inward, it forces the core to disintegrate and burst outward. You don’t have to be a biologist to appreciate what explosive terminal performance does to a small animal.
This premium Nebraska-made 223 varmint hunting ammo is loaded with reloadable brass cases and high-quality Boxer primers. You’ll want a 1:14” or 1:16” barrel twist if you want to see this ammo’s best accuray.
