I’m interested to see how you are getting 1300fps out of an XTP 200 grain in a handgun. With my 6-1/2” barrel on mine the best I’ve been able to safely achieve is about 1225.

I killed a doe last year at 30 yards with it. She ran less than 25 yards with a shot through the lungs.

7 inch KKM barrel
12.8 grains of Accurate #9 powder
CCI 350 primer
200 grain Nosler JHP

1,306 fps

The same can be done with the XTP at 12.6 grains of Accurate #9, the XTP is a longer bullet than the Nosler, by about .010".

These loads in a stock Glock 20 generate 1,225 fps... My pistol is a Glock 40, with the longer, tighter KKM barrel.


Interesting, thanks for the info.
