I tried loading 200 grain xtp in my sweet 14 44 mag contender this year and was getting 1950 fps and great groups but when I tested the bullet on water jugs it blew all to pieces in the first jug so I went back to 240 grain bullets.

THE 460 CAN BE AN AWESOME REVOLVER FOR DEER. I SHOOT CORBON FACTORY BARNES 200gr XPB BULLETS IN MINE. CURIOUS TO SEE HOW THE 240 XTP MAG BULLETS DO AT HYPER HIGH VELOCITY.

I had almost the same experience with the 200gr Hornady 460 ammo on a deer... It seems that bullet is for broadside lung shots where the performance is exciting. Good luck with your 240 load....
