Default hornaday bullets

Where could a guy get some Hornaday 225 gr FTX in .430 44 cal.

This the same bullet they use in the Leverevolution ammo.

I really like this bullet and would like to reload my own, but can't seem to find

the bullet anywhere. Any help would be appreciated thanks.

Hornaday calls it item #4305. Midway USA catalogs it but is out of stock right now. Back order may be the way to go.

Thanks Robo, One more question? That states its for the 444 marlin in 265 gr.

I would like to find some of the 225gr for my 44mag. Is there anything diffrent other than the weight. The 225 gr are great! I bet the 265 gr would be devastating.

It appears to have two crimp cannelures for different loads. It would probably work as long as you loaded to .44 mag OAL specs. 265gr is not too heavy for the .44, but lever guns tend to be length sensitive.
