The 125 grain XTP’s jacket is optimized to enhance multiple aspects of performance. It fully protects the brim of the nose cavity to prevent failures to feed. It is serrated into multiple sections, which makes it peel backward in uniform directions even following lower-velocity impact. The XTP’s jacket varies in thickness throughout its entire length, which serves to control terminal expansion even further. The XTP also boasts great accuracy thanks to its highly concentric jacket and swaged lead core.
Underwood didn’t just give this ammo a high-quality bullet. They also loaded it with nickel-plated brass cases, which are corrosion resistant, sleek to facilitate extraction from the cylinder, and reflective enough to be seen easily in low light. The Illinois manufacturer goes one step further with their flash suppressed powder, which will limit muzzle flash to help your eyes remained acclimated to the dark.
This is +P ammo. Lever-action rifles and revolvers chambered for 357 Magnum can fire 38 Special +P just fine. You do want to make sure a 38 Special revolver is rated for +P before firing this ammo with it, though.
