New Muzzleloading Projectile

Bore Driver™ FTX®

50 CAL. 290 gr FTX®

Item No. 67713

Fast and easy to load, the Bore Driver™ FTX® delivers the ultimate in muzzleloader performance. At the heart of the system is a polymer base (not a sabot) that seals the bore to deliver maximum energy transfer and accuracy. Atop the base is the FTX® bullet, featuring a rugged gilding metal jacket coupled with patented FlexTip® technology and an InterLock® ring that delivers maximum lethality.


Without a sabot, the Bore Driver™ FTX® seats quickly and easily for shot after shot performance.


The FTX® bullet incorporates an InterLock® ring that helps retain bullet weight upon impact that when coupled with a tough copper alloy jacket delivers deep penetration and expansion for the ultimate in on-game lethality.


FlexTip® initiates expansion even at low velocities enabling enhanced muzzleloader terminal performance.


The polymer base features a post that fits into the bottom of the bullet. This post swells in diameter at ignition for better torque engagement from inside the bullet and the centering petals grip the bullet’s boattail while the base engages the rifling to maximize energy transmission.
