Hornady Handgun Hunter ammunition is built around a bullet as rough and rugged as the conditions and game demand. The MonoFlex handgun projectile is manufactured with a tough copper alloy that achieves deep penetration and 95% weight retention. Bullet expansion across a range of velocities is aided with a proprietary elastomer material added to the bullet’s open cavity. Upon impact, the elastomer compresses, then pushes out and causes the bullet to expand faster than a standard hollow point design. Combined with premium cases, primers and propellants, Handgun Hunter ammunition benefits from years of producing hard-hitting GMX and MonoFlex rifle bullets to introduce a handgun version that lives up to the Hornady reputation. This ammunition is new production, non-corrosive, in boxer primed, reloadable brass cases.
