Hornady XTP Pistol Bullets
XTP 44 Mag. Great Bullets !
These are Great Bullets! Just as cheap as any, but are very high quality. Loaded up some 240 grain XTP HP in .44 Magnum to shoot in a Lever Action Marlin. Easy to seat and they shoot super tight groups too. Cant wait to try these out on some feral hogs.

Still Top Quality
I have been loading The excellent XTP hollow points in my .357 Magnum handloads for many years. I have a 4" barreled Colt that loves the 125gr, and a 6.5" barreled Ruger that thrives on the 158gr weights. I have used both the .40 cal 180gr and 200gr weights making serious loads for my Glock 22. I have yet to get to the bench to load the .44cal 240gr XTP's, but my plan is to load them to two different power levels in .44mag cases. I expect good results with an 1100fps load for a snub-nose revolver as well as with a 1400fps load for a 7.5" Ruger Redhawk. XTP's have never let me down in any caliber or weight.

I've used a lot of Hornady buttes over the years and have always had great results. Hornady makes quality products and have been around a long time. These bullets seem to always be available at the stores I visit too. Very well satisfied!

A reloader's dream
Hornady's XTP line of bullets is in a word fantastic. I began loading for pistol last month to realize the same cost savings I enjoyed with loading for my long guns and began with the XTP in .40/180GR. I was loading for half the price of ball ammo and my groups tightened noticably. A few water jugs revealed impressive expansion as well as penetration. I took the plunge and now load for .357mag and .45ACP using XTPs exclusively. Hornady's AMAX and VMAX lines gave me assurance their pistol bullets would peform as advertised, shooting them gave me the proof. Very satisfied and factory free!
