The Hornady XTP bullet was originally designed for Hunting, self-defence and law enforcement purposes but it's extreme accuracy led to it being adopted by many competitive target shooters as well. Their reliable terminal performance has gained them a world class reputation. From the beginning, the XTP bullet was designed to expand at a wide range of handgun velocities to give deep penetration with every shot.

On revolver bullets, the cannelure helps achieve accurate, consistent, crimping. All cannelures are applied before the final for
