NEW Hornady Action Pistol Bullets

NEW Hornady Action Pistol Bullets

The HAP bullet is essentially a redesigned XTP bullet, one that dispenses with the folds and cannelures the XTP employs to produce expansion.

With the huge popularity of the various action shooting disciplines, it's no surprise that Hornady not only fields pro shooters to represent the company (see article), the firm has also developed a new bullet: Hornady Action Pistol.

The HAP bullet is essentially a redesigned XTP bullet, one that dispenses with the folds and cannelures the XTP employs to produce expansion. In addition, the nose of the HAP bullet is protected for consistent and reliable feeding in semiautos--there's no exposed lead to cause jams.


The bullet features a pure-lead, cold-swaged core for balance and stability in flight, as well as the company's super-concentric copper jackets.

The new HAP bullet is loaded in Hornady's Steel Match and Wilson's new Signature Jacketed Match, and it's also available as a component in 9mm (121- and 125-grain), 10mm (180) and .45 (230).

We'll be bringing you a more in-depth look at this new bullet in a future issue.
