This 40 S&W round is loaded with a 180 grain XTP, a jacketed hollow point with many little performance enhancing flourishes that make it a true Hornady bullet. The XTP’s jacket is divided up by multiple serrations, which alongside its varying thickness throughout its length work to control more uniform expansion. The XTP’s jacket also covers the rim of its nose cavity, helping to prevent a feeding problem in a semi-auto as well as promote optimal functionality during penetration. Its jacket’s concentricity and swaged lead core make the XTP accurate as well – very beneficial when you actually need to hit your target.
The XTP reliably expands within the things humans are made of, and at close range this round’s bullet tosses around a great deal more energy than the minimum recommended for personal protection. That kind of reliable terminal expansion is well supported by Hornady’s quality brass, primer, and propellant, making this ammo great for emergency preparation as well as loading into your EDC the same day we deliver it to your doorstep.
