Hornady .500 S&W 500gr XTP Flat-Point Bullets (box/50)
(This is NOT loaded ammunition)
Designed for personal defense and medium-game hunting, XTP®Mag™ bullets provide the same controlled expansion, accuracy and dependability that have made XTP® bullets a favorite among target shooters and hunters alike. But XTP® Mag™ bullets are designed to take things a step further — withstanding the higher velocities and impacts of ultra-powerful, magnum handguns while delivering even deeper penetration than standard XTP®bullets.
We like this bullet in conjunction with many .50 cal sabots.
Precise serrations divide the XTP® Mag™ into symmetrical sections, strategically weakening the jacket and initiating controlled expansion even at low velocities.
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.
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® Mag™, 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.
