Product Information:

Designed for hunting, self-defence and law enforcement applications, the XTP bullet demonstrates the kind of accuracy that led many competitive shooters to adopt it. Its reliable performance makes the XTP, the most popular handgun bullet for both target shooters and hunters. But its 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. Most handgun bullets are designed to perform at a single factory-specified velocity. The XTP offers controlled expansion over a range of velocities. This chart illustrates the wide range at which each XTP will perform. 1. CONTROLLED EXPANSION Precise serrations divide the XTP into symmetrical sections, strategically weakening the jacket and initiating controlled expansion even at low velocities. 2. 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. 3. SWAGED CORE Total uniformity of core density ensures balanced expansion as well as, in-flight stability. 4. 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. 5. 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.
