I had requested some load data for Hornady's soon to be released FTX bullets and I thought I'd post it for those interested. I have data for both the 30-30 and 45/70 loads.

Your very welcome. I had requested load data for the .44 mag. using FTX bullets also and will post that as soon as I receive it.

I received this Email today from Bob Palmer of Hornady's technical assistance:
"At this time we do not have the data for the 44 mag with the Flex Tipped
bullet. But you could use the 265 gr flat point load data from the 7th
addition book. "

So for now we can just use existing data to load their Flex tipped 265gr. .44 mag. bullets.

Hodgdon's H110 works very well in the .44 mag. and my suggestion would be to load the 265gr. FTX bullets with 16.6gr.-23.2gr. of H110 for a velocity ranging from 1200FPS-1700FPS. This data is from Hornady's 7th edition manual for use in a rifle. These figures are based on an 18" barreled Ruger carbine with a 1 in 38" rifling twist rate.
