Nostrum Damus SASS #110702 Posted February 13 Share Posted February 13 I have two full (20 round) boxes of Hornady LEVERevolution Rifle Ammo - .45-70 Government Caliber - 325 Grain FTX that my shoulder doesn't want to shoot anymore. It sells everywhere (that has it in stock) for $50/box, that is, $2.50 a round. Here's what Hornady says: Hornady® LEVERevolution™ Rifle Ammo allows hunters to achieve maximum trajectory in lever-action rifles and carbines using Hornady FTX® Bullets that feature a pointed Flex Tip® that is safe to use in tubular magazines. These aerodynamic bullets dramatically extend the range of cartridges normally loaded with round- or flat-nosed bullets. Upon impact, the Flex Tip compresses into the bullet, initiating devastating expansion across a wide range of velocities. Hornady's InterLock® ring design keeps core and jacket together to ensure maximum weight retention for deep penetration. Hornady LEVERevolution is premium Rifle Ammo for use in all types of firearms, including single-shot pistols and rifles, and of course lever-actions. Maximum trajectory in lever-action rifles Safe to use in tubular magazines Deliver devastating expansion Great weight retention for deep penetration NOTE: LEVERevolution's revolutionary new bullet design may require a newer magazine follower to provide best possible functioning of the last round out of the magazine. I'd like to trade the two boxes (40 rounds) for 80 .45-70 brass cases -- clean or dirty, spent primers in or deprimed, doesn't matter, as long as the cases are not shot out or damaged or corroded. Starline cases (when you can find them) sell for $1.25 a piece at most retail outlets, so the trade would be "even-steven" -- you send me the brass, I'll send you the ammo. You get the ammo PLUS you'll still have the 40 Hornady brass cases. I'd rather not pull and ruin the FTX projectiles, nor dump the unknown powder, if someone can use it. Thanks for reading.
