Hornady hatted this .40 cal round with their 135 grain MonoFlex. It offers a lot of benefits because it is made out of solid copper, including the prevention of barrel leading and compliance with certain jurisdictions’ hunting ammo laws. A monolithic bullet is also more durable than your typical lead-core-copper-jacket projectile. It can’t experience core/jacket separation, and tough copper resists fracturing as it enters soft tissue at a high velocity.
The MonoFlex expands widely in addition to penetrating deeply. Its nose cavity is filled with elastomer – a supple, rubbery material – which forces its way outward when it meets with pressure head-on. That forces the MonoFlex’s nose cavity to expand widely, thus increasing the amount of energy it can transfer in all directions around it. Such rapid terminal expansion really maximizes the amount of damage an already powerful cartridge can deal!
Hornady is one of the most respected names in American ammo production. Their brass cases, non-corrosive primers, and proprietary bullets all come together seamlessly to offer the finest solutions for hunting and self-defense on the market.
