Designed for hunting, self-defense and law enforcement applications, the XTP bullet demonstrates the kind of accuracy which led many competitive shooters to adopt it. Its reliable performance makes the XTP a most popular handgun bullet for both target shooters and hunters. 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.
- Precise serrations divide the XTP into symmetrical sections, strategically weakening the jacket and initiating controlled expansion even at low velocities.
- Total uniformity of core density ensures balanced expansion as well as in-flight stability.
- 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.
- 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.
