It is now designed for .357 Magnum and .44 Magnum revolvers.

Hornady reaches another pivotal turning point with the application of LEVERevolution® Flex Tip® technology to the handgun arena with the 357 Magnum and 44 Magnum LEVERevolution® cartridges.

Typical hollow point pistol bullets deliver good performance at modest velocities, but expand too quickly and sacrifice penetration at the higher velocities achieved with lever action rifles. But Hornady soon discovered that the same Flex Tip® technology that prevents primers from detonating in tubular magazines, also allows the bullet to expand reliably over an unbelievably wide range of velocities.

Upon impact, the Flex Tip® eXpanding bullet is compressed into the front of the bullet, causing the bullet to expand under hydraulic force. Flex Tip® eXpanding bullets will NEVER clog and not expand like some hollow points can. This also transfers a great deal of immediate energy with a devastating temporary cavity, even at low velocity.


Now you can shoot Hornady’s LEVERevolution® from your lever gun AND your handgun!

Hornady’s 357 Mag and 44 Mag LEVERevolution cartridges feature a 140 gr and a 225 gr FTX bullet, respectively. Both bullets deliver exceptional performance across a wide range of velocities and are designed for use in both handguns and lever action carbines. By applying our patented Flex Tip technology and clean burning, high energy propellants, these cartridges deliver rifle like performance in both expansion and penetration from any gun in any situation.

Is it ment for self defense applications... I doubt it as it was designed around having a good handgun hunting cartridge.
