HORNADY 45c(.452)250gr 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.

I load these for my Ruger Flattop in .45 Colt. They group very well with HP38/W231 for a standard load, as well as for somewhat hotter loads. I usually shoot cast bullets for targets and plinking, but I love these XTP bullets for more serious use in hunting or for defense.

Super accurate bullet in my Ruger Blackhawk with 4 5/8" barrel. Grouping into less than an inch at 25 yards.

I use these bullets along with Harvester Crush Rib sabots. They are a deadly combination out of my CVA Optima.
