Anybody have any experience with these bullets? Bid on a box of .45 bullets on an online estate auction and ended up scoring 2600 of these, way cheaper than I should have. Me and a buddy ended up with a little over 4k .45 bullets and 6k 9mm bullets. Plan on doing a lot of reloading for both.

Never tried reloading an XTP on a .45 but I have reloaded a lot of 210 XTP in the .41 Magnum S&W with H110 and shoots excellent and with great terminal performance on big hog sized game.
You won't go wrong with the 185 XTP in my opinion for self defense, hunting or plinking.

They work very well in the 45ACP. Flying ashtray

Thanks guys. Looking forward to plinking around with these, I was wanting FMJ but these were too cheap to pass up.
