Hornady XTP Pistol Bullets
A Great Blackpowder Option
The 240 XTP is without question an extremely accurate bullet out of all three of my muzzleloaders. I have a TC White Mountain Carbine, CVA Wolf, and a Traditions Pursuit Accelerator all in
I use the green Crushed Rib sabot with all three.
White Mountain - 85gr. ffg 777
Wolf - 90gr. fffg 777
Accelerator - 100gr. Blackhorn 209
I used to shoot maxi balls out the the carbine until I discovered the xtp. I was happy to be in the pie plate at 75yd but now 2-3" groups are the usual. The Wolf is the newest purchase and after the success with the other two guns was the obvious bullet I tried. The Accelerator can cloverleaf this load at 100yd off of a sled.
The one caution I have is for those deer hunters of you that shoot max powder loads. Be sure to check your load data and not exceed 1700-1800 fps at impact. I have never lost a deer but have experienced less than desirable penetration if terminal velocity exceeds the above numbers.

I HAVE LOADED THE 155 GRAIN 10MM (.400") FOR MY 40 S&W MULTIPLE TIMES. BULLETS LOAD WELL AND FEED PERFECTLY. THESE ARE TOP QUALITY WHICH IS TO BE EXPECTED FROM HORNADY. SHOT GROUPS WERE GOOD WITH THESE BULLETS. I WOULD USE THESE FOR TARGET SHOOTING AND HOME DEFENSE BUT THAT IS JUST MY OPINION.

I load a wide range of handgun ammo. I find the XTP to give excellent results on target and are the finest quality to run with my progressive loader. Always uniform in size, never a problem holding length which leads to awesome accuracy.

I think hornaday xtp bullets are as advertised accurate and deadly the hogs I have shot with them have been DRT. you can't beat them for the price why would you buy a high dollar bullet wen you don't need to
