200 Rounds of 185gr JHP .45 ACP Ammo by Hornady For Sale
When loading the 45 ACP ammo in their American Gunner line, Hornady doesn’t do anything new or daring. They simply stick to what is effective, and their ballisticians have researched this for more than seven decades.
eXtreme Terminal Performance undoubtedly achieves its goals. It is a drawn gilding metal jacketed jacketed hollow point. The XTP’s jacket is thick near its base and gets thinner around the rim, unlike a plated jacket, which is constant in thickness by design. This, along with its notched jacket, aids the XTP in starting terminal expansion after impact at slower speeds.
No exposed lead is seen around the XTP’s nasal cavity due to its jacket. This does two things: it hardens the bullet’s tip to prevent snagging, which might disrupt continuous feeding, and it ensures that the XTP is not harmed upon initial hit, losing its capacity to expand in diameter by up to 1.5 times as a result.
Although the XTP’s jacket is tapered, it still displays the concentricity for which Hornady is renowned. The bullet’s swaged lead core, premium brass, primer, and propellant all contribute to its exceptional accuracy, which is essential for defense shooting.
