Hornady Action Pistol bullets take the best aspects of the external ballistics of the XTP bullet, and eliminate as many variables as possible. This means there are no folded petals, no exposed lead, no cannelure, and a pure lead core that is more consistent than high antimony alloys typically used in hollow point bullets. All of this means a more predictable, accurate flight path of the bullet, perfect for competition.
Modeled after the legendary XTP bullet design, HAP (Hornady Action Pistol) bullets are further refined into the perfect competition projectile. While XTP bullets use folds and a cannelure to aid in controlled expansion and terminal performance, we have eliminated these from HAP bullets leaving only a sleek and balanced projectile with a protected nose that aids in consistent and reliable feeding in autos.
Bullet jackets feature industry-leading concentricity combined with precision swaged cores to deliver the very best in accuracy and performance. Dont just compete win with Hornady HAP pistol bullets.
Built For Competition!
Expansion isnt an issue in action pistol shooting, so we removed the expansion-aiding features like the skives and cannelure. The result is a bullet that delivers the accuracy its sleek appearance promises.
No Exposed Lead
A jam can cost the match for a competitive shooter, and thats why our copper jacket protects the nose of our HAP bullet. The design ensures smooth feeding every time.
Swaged Core and Copper Jacket
The core of the HAP bullet is cold swaged from pure lead to deliver consistency, balance and stability in flight. It delivers peak, pinpoint accuracy with every shot. The copper jacket protects the nose and ensures a smooth and quick feed into your gun.
