Good Job!

Which 158 XTP version were you using FP or HP?

I just picked up a box of 200 FTX's to give a try in the 35 BullBerry. I am wanting to see what they will do. I still have 3 boxes of 180 SSP that will hold me for a few more years. Like you I also have a few boxes of the 180 XTP's and 158 XTP-FP and 158 XTP-HP's on the shelf to work with, along with part of a box of the 140 FTX's.

I have also wondered about the 158 Deep Curls for hunting. Normally I load the 125's and 135's for my short barrel 38 & 357 revolvers. I believe my local reloading supply has the 158 Deep Curls on the shelf.

I need to build another Fackler Water Box to test bullets in. Two deer tags a year and limited freezer space slows down testing on game somewhat.

Again A Great Hunting Story.

Bob

Congrats! That's impressive for the HP , considering the recommended velocities for those versus the FP. I leave tomorrow to go test some 158 XTP HP for two weeks on Idaho whitetails, I guess I'll have no problems with them at 6" pistol velocities then!

They should work if you do your part.

I'm shooting them out of a 6" GP100, they are averaging right at 1500 fps.

I shot a deer last year with my 6in GP-100 using the 158gr XTP-HP. Quartering towards me at about 21 yards, the bullet struck the point of the shoulder, passed through the heart/lungs, and lodged under the hide at the back of the ribs.

Deer ran a 94 yard half circle and died.
