HORNADY 45c(.451)230gr 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.

These HP’s feed in my finicky 1911 just fine. XTP’s are an older design and are not state of the art. Their known issues are over penetration and they don’t always expand in FBI denim tests. They are not Federal HST’s. Now the good, they are accurate! I wish Hornady would sell their Critical Duty line for reloading. They are basically XTP’s with a elastomeric red tip up front to expand in denim or intermediate barriers. This 230gr version will expand nicely if you give it enough oomph, just be safe! I can get mine up to 900fps without going to max published load data.
