Hornady American Whitetail 450 Bushmaster 245 Gr InterLock
Hornady wants to provide the American deer hunter with the greatest possible cartridge for this hunting season, with their American Whitetail line - available in several calibers. For hunters using a 450 Bushmaster weapon, these staggering InterLock rounds are an exceptional choice. As 450 Bushmaster users already know, this caliber has very imposing capabilities, and can be fired from an AR platform, making 450 Bushmaster a considerable destructive force. Hornady's advanced InterLock expanding projectile maximizes that destructive force with a durable jacket-to-core bond, providing full weight retention and energy on target. For deer hunting, this means that an accurate shot on target will have devastating results.
As Hornady's customers already know, their cases, primers, and powders are consistent in order to provide uniform performance from shot to shot in the field. Only the highest quality newly made and reloadable brass casings are used to house these hard-hitting 450 Bushmaster InterLock rounds.
- Exposed lead tip for reliable expansion on impact
- InterLock ring: a raised lip inside the jacket that interfaces with the core, locking the two together
450 Bushmaster was created after the legendary Col. Jeff Cooper proposed his "thumper" concept, which suggested a cartridge larger than a .44 that would be capable of taking down big game at 250 yards, while still retaining the use of the semi-automatic AR platform. This was a critical concept at the time, as 5.56x45 was reported to be failing to do its job in some cases, necessitating the creation of something a little more potent. The results were cartridges like .458 SOCOM, and 450 Bushmaster. These are cartridges that are capable of stopping anything that may come your way.
