I have only used the 250XTP on deer and it slams them from a 454 at 1500 fps. I haven't recovered any at this point.

I am launching the 250gr XTP at 2,388 FPS out of my Encore .460 S&W Pistol. Have taken 2 deer with devastating results! Recovered both bullets expanded to about max capability.

Love this combo for whitetail.

Interesting....I've never recovered one from my 454 at 1750fps.

They should work good in that 460. Tougher bullet than those 200?s and youre getting going for sure!

I had a much higher impact velocity and hit on side point of the shoulder bone on both deer. Leading to rapid expansion and shallower penetration. Both bullets were recovered under the hide on the quartering towards deer.

I'm not trying to hi-jack this thread, but I've only used the 300gr. XTP in 44 caliber and have had zero issues. I use it in my muzzleloader to 1960 FPS and my 44 Mag at just over 1300 FPS. I'm in the process of putting together a 445 Super Mag and plan on trying the same bullet. Deer and hogs have been my main quarry and shots are under 150 yds. with 75/100 yds. being the norm. Mushrooms are textbook when I do find a bullet and have not had any separation issues that I am aware of. Not sure if the .430 diameter vs. .452 diameter has any bearing on it or if it is just an issue with the MAG TIP type itself, but I like the bullet!
