Designed for hunting, self-defence and law enforcement applications, the XTPbullet demonstrates the kind of accuracy that led many competitive shooters to adopt it. Its reliable performance makes the XTPthe most popular handgun bullet for both target shooters and hunters. But its the stopping power of the XTPbullet that has truly built its world-class reputation. From the onset, XTPbullets 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 XTPoffers controlled expansion over a range of velocities. This chart illustrates the wide range at which each XTPwill perform.
1. CONTROLLED EXPANSION
Precise serrations divide the XTPinto 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.
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.
