The Hornady XTP, eXtreme Terminal Performance, is a bullet that has gained such recognition it’s used by other manufacturers in their rounds. For example, these are Fiocchi rounds, but they include the XTP bullet. The XTP has unique features that give it its apt name, including serrations placed strategically around the top of the jacket to weaken it in just the right places to encourage uniform, reliable expansion. Core density is also uniform, which helps maintain a balanced trajectory in flight while also improving expansion. In addition, jacket thickness is narrower at the top and gradually thickens at the base, giving them a distinct advantage over plated bullets.
These Fiocchi rounds are made for your .45 ACP. At 200 grain they’re reasonably heavy, having the ability to strike targets with substantial power. These rounds contain the Hornady XTP HP bullet as described above; they deliver incredibly rapid energy transfer on impact, also expanding on impact, mushrooming while simultaneously decelerating to create a massive wound cavity. Each of these rounds has a muzzle velocity of 925 feet per second and muzzle energy of 380 foot-pounds. This ammunition is designed for self-defense, and it certainly gets the job done.
There are 25 defense rounds in this single box of Fiocchi ammunition. That’s just enough to keep your gun and spare mag loaded and ready for self-defense. Keep in mind that defense rounds produce more felt recoil and muzzle flip than target rounds, meaning it’s going to be harder to make accurate follow-up shots and re-acquire targets with defense ammo. Because of that it’s wise to practice with defense rounds, so you should consider buying more than one box. Fiocchi’s headquarters are located in Lecco, Italy, but they also have a facility in Ozark, Missouri, for distribution in the U.S. Order now to give your .45 ACP the power it’s truly capable of producing.

Self defense loads MUST function first time every time. I have used Fiocchi brand ammo in all of my auto pistols. I carry the 200 gr. Extrema JHP in My Ruger American. Reliable, accurate, hard hitting ammo with a fair price. My favorite brand to date.
