Rated 5 out of 5 by Bloodbath Deadly! I paired the 200gr. bullets with my Thompson Center Encore muzzleloader. Combined with 100 grains of Triple 7 pellets the bullet is moving well over 2000fps with plenty of knock down power and accuracy. I shot about a 4 1/2 year old buck this past muzzleloader season in Ohio and it weighed close to 300lbs. I shot it from just under 180 yds with the rangfinder, and it dropped him in his tracks, the way the bullet turned into shrapnel jolting his insides into jelly. I can consistently hold my Encore less than half inch groups they're usually cutting the same hole at 100yds and under 4in. at 200yds. February 13, 2012

Details:Why doesn't Hornady offer the FTX bullet in .451 for reloaders?
It is available in loaded ammunition.
A:FTX stands for Flex Tip, its just a bit softer than the SST. Its softer so that it can be loaded into a tubular magazine and not set of the round in front of it. The SST is ment to be used in a stacking magazine. They will or should shoot exactly the same. Hornady makes a very good bullet. I use these in my 450 bushmaster hand loads.
A:The .452 bullet is for the .45 Long Colt.
The .451 is for the .45 ACP.
It's only 1/1000 difference, but you could get dangerous pressure increases and accuracy problems.
Stick with the proper diameters as recommended by your reloading manuals.
A:If it is a .452 it will fit both.
