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.

Hornady xpt 250, .452

By Tim S. on Feb 09, 2024
These bullets were a game changer for my muzzleloader. Cut my group size in half. Didn't realize the old CVA had the ability to shoot the way it does now. They do expand at muzzleloader velocities.

Hornady bullets.

I've used Hornady bullets almost exclusively for 45 years, you just can't beat the quality, accuracy and value. Add to that the selection and load data information puts Hornady bullets at the top of my list ! Larry C.

As with all Hornady, this is a good quality nicely made bullet. It provides awesome accuracy and hard hitting in my 1892 lever action.

Great Selection of Hornady Bullets

By Steven K. on Apr 03, 2023
Graf has what I want "In-Stock". Unlike other reloading retailers, you don't see page after page of "out of stock" or "notify me when available".

Thanks Graf!

Nice bullets

By Terence P. on Feb 21, 2023
I intend to use these for my Henry rifle, but I have to check for proper expansion at higher velocities first.

By Steve S. on Nov 28, 2022
I have have this bullet to be accurate in my Single Action Army .45 Colts, as well as a 10" Thomson Center Contender. I use nothing other than HP/XTP bullets for hunting deer with handgun cartridges, as I have found them to be very effective.

By Jerome M. on Jun 18, 2020
For high velocity handgun bullets, I shoot more of these than anything else. Best bang for your buck.

Great accuracy

By Fred H. on Jun 01, 2020
Great bullet for my 454 Casull. I load these standard loads for targets.

Very Accurate

By Mike S. on Jan 23, 2020
Works well for .45 Colt loads at the heavier end of the spectrum.

Very accurate

By Eric V. on Nov 09, 2019
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.
