HORNADY 38c(.357)140gr HP/XTP BULLET HollowPt 100/BX
Originally designed for hunting, self-defense and law enforcement application, the XTP demonstrated the kind of accuracy that led many competitive shooters to adopt it. Precise folds divide the XTP in six symmetrical sections, strategically weakening the jacket and initiating controlled expansion even at low velocities. The copper jacket protects the nose of the XTP bullet, so the hollow cavity functions properly on impact. The XTP’s jacket and core expand at the same rate to ensure they remain locked together, transferring all downrange energy to the target. Expansion is controlled by varying jacket thickness down the length of the XTP. XTP’s were specifically designed to expand reliably at a wide range of handgun velocities to deliver a deep, terminal penetration with every shot.

Outstanding Bullet Performance

Loaded the 140 gr XTP bullets as .357 Magnum defense rounds with once-fired pin-tumbled cleaned brass. Used CCI 550 SPM primers and xx.x gr W296 powder. Reference: Hornady Manual 10th Edition, pg. 886. Exceptional performance right at 1250 fps.
Also loaded the 125 gr XTP bullets at ~1350 fps using the before mentioned primers and xx.x gr of W296 powder. Reference: Hornady Manual 10th Edition, pg. 885. Quite impressive load for a small weight bullet.
All fired from a Smith & Wesson 6" barrel Model 29-2, which to me is the Cadillac of .357 magnum revolvers. Great bullet to bullet weight consistencies as well. Hornady = Quality.

I've loaded many different calibers with these bullets and they have proven great for hunting, target shooting and from various reports, self Defense. Will purchase again.
