HORNADY 38c(.357)158gr 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.
This is not loaded ammunition.

An ideal bullet for .357 hunting loads
By David B.

Like all Hornady bullets, this JHP gives reliable accuracy in .357 magnum and .357 Maximum loads in my NEF single-shot rifle. Hornady is my go-to for bullets in any caliber.

Taken several deer with these.bullets from 50 to 150 yds. 2 DRT the third only went about 20 yds all with minimal meat damage. In my humble opinion the xtp is the best handgun hunting bullet made!

Great bullet quality and great consistency. This is why I only load with Hornady products.

I use this bullet for my pet 357 Magnum load and it works great in in the .35 Contender for Deer.
Can also be used for plinking with "reduced recoil" loads in the 358 Winchester and 350 Rem Mag.

The Hornady XTP line of bullets have a proven record for loading rounds designed for self-defense, but I use them in all of my loads because of their reliability and performance. I have shot my best groups with XTP bullets and they feed very well in my Beretta. I am sticking with them.

I load these for a S & W Model 19 circa 1971 with a 4" barrel and a Ruger Security Six circa 1978 with a 6" barrel. The Hornady has been my go to bullet for all types of varmint shooting, both 2 legged and 4 legged, since 1983. For accuracy, consistency, and penetration the Hornady XTP bullets work for me. I shovel a healthy dose of 2400 or Blue Dot into the case and I'm ready for fun. I never tire of shooting .357's.

This has been my standby for many years in handloads for my Dan Wesson 357 magnum revolver. Very accurate even when loaded to maximum velocities.

The count is right on these, but it would be OK if they gave one extra. Lots of folks recognize and prefer the Hornady bullets.
