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.

300 grain XTP

By Stanley K. on Nov 28, 2023
These bullets are of high quality. Very accurate through my Henry Rifle , and through my 44mag Encore rifle barrel. Can't go wrong with Hornady bullets.

Loaded easily in 10.4x42 Swiss as a jacketed option.

By Stephen J. on Sep 24, 2023
This bullet fits perfectly for my specific application in a sporterized Swiss Vetterli. Just have to make sure the gun can handle longer brass and the overall neck width of the seated projectile. I lucked out that mine is generous enough to handle this projectile with a suitable weight and diameter for my barrel. Your mileage may vary but it was worthwhile to at least give it a try. Wouldn't think twice about taking it in the deer woods!

Loaded for Bear

By Charles P. on Sep 06, 2023
Seriously, this bullet is going to pack a punch and am in great hopes that my son will get an opportunity to prove it on a ME Black Bear next week using his .44 Mag. Patterns well and hits hard, You can expect excellent performance from Hornady XTP's.

300gr XTP In Subsonic 44Mag

By Lawrence D. on Jul 31, 2023
Purchased these for loading in 10" Encore 44 Mag for subsonic use. These should perform well, based on their impact velocity recommendations. Have not tested yet.

HORNADY 44c(.430)300gr HP/XTP BULLET HollowPt 50/BX

By Joseph K. on Feb 04, 2023
I use this bullet in a Thompson Contender 44 Magnum. 14-inch barrel. H110 powder. This bullet is consistently accurate out to 50 yards. Fabulous penetration on deer and elk. You will not go wrong with this bullet.

300 grain XTP

By Max D. on Feb 17, 2020
This is an excellent hunting option. The 300gr XTP has much more inertia and thus, much more penetration than the lighter weight .430 offerings. I was testing this bullet against the 300gr Nosler and this bullet held together better and retained more weight in water jug testing than the Nosler bullet. Another reason for choosing this bullet over the Nosler hollow point is it's ease of loading without damaging the hollow point or meplat. I got between 30 and 36 inches of penetration in water with this bullet at velocitys between 1250 and 1450 FPS. Pushing this bullet out of a Henry rifle at 1400 FPS will deliver about 1300 ftlbs of energy. Very respectable deer hunting load.
