Product Information

Designed for hunting, self-defense and law enforcement applications, the XTP® bullet demonstrates the kind of accuracy that led many competitive shooters to adopt it. Reliable performance makes the XTP® the most popular handgun bullet for both target shooters and hunters. But it's the stopping power of the XTP® bullet that has truly built its world-class reputation. From the onset, XTP® bullets were specifically designed to expand reliably at a wide range of handgun velocities to deliver deep penetration with every shot.

  • CONTROLLED EXPANSION:  Precise serrations divide the XTP® into symmetrical sections, strategically weakening the jacket and initiating controlled expansion even at low velocities.
  • NO EXPOSED LEAD:  The gilding metal jacket protects the nose of the bullet, so the hollow cavity functions properly on impact and ensures proper feeding in semi-automatics.
  • SWAGED CORE:  Total uniformity of core density ensures balanced expansion as well as in-flight stability.
  • DRAWN GILDING METAL JACKET:  Expansion is controlled by varying jacket thickness down the length of the XTP®, providing a definite advantage over plated bullets which have a uniform jacket thickness over the entire bullet.
  • CANNELURE:  On revolver bullets, the cannelure helps achieve accurate, consistent crimping. All cannelures are applied before the final forming process to eliminate any distortion to the finished bullet.

This is not loaded ammunition.

Great Bullets for 357 and 38 special

By Mark K. on Jun 12, 2019
Hornady are the best bullet for loading both the 357 and 38 special and plus p 38 for the money. I just wish they would bring back the little blank reloading slips in each box.

FP vs HP

By Michael B. on Jan 06, 2018
You would think the FP and the HP would shoot to the same point of impact - but not so.
The HP might be a better choice for self defense, but for accuracy the FP has the advantage. I shoot both in a Marlin 1894 24" lever action rifle and in my case the FP bullet outshoots the HP - more accurate and consistent to the point of aim. In a handgun this is not a concern - I seldom use a handgun for 100 meter targets.
