Hornady recently announced the newest addition to the company’s hunting lines of loaded ammunition, American Whitetail in 450 Bushmaster. The new load employs a 245-grain InterLock bullet, bringing a big, hard-hitting performance cartridge to deer hunters.
Hornady American Whitetail 450 Bushmaster
At the forefront movement for straight-walled cases sits the 450 Bushmaster. With several midwestern states now allowing deer hunting with straight-walled cases, where formally only shotgun hunting was allowed, you can bet these designs are popular. For Hornady, bringing out a 245-grain InterLock in a signature line makes a lot of sense.
Hornady’s InterLock bullets feature exposed lead tips for controlled overall expansion and hard-hitting terminal performance. American Whitetail bullets feature the InterLock ring, a raised ring inside the jacket embedded in the bullet’s core. That ring keeps the core and jacket locked together during expansion to retain mass and energy, according to Hornady.
Hornady also loads its powder to conventional velocities, matched to each load for optimum pressure and consistency. Hornady says each load is compatible with semi-autos, extremely important with the 450 Bushmaster and the growing trend toward hunting with the AR-15 platform.
All American Whitetail rounds also use the highest quality cases and primers available, according to Hornady. Ultimately, consistent components translate to consistent shooting in the field, and that’s what Hornady is shooting for with this new American Whitetail loading.
