Hornady 180 xtp
« on: December 06, 2017, 06:54:07 PM »
Hey guys great sight and have loved reading for hours. 

I have a question for y'all.  I just bought a G20 and was shooting this evening at an indoor range. I shot 100 rounds of Sig fmj and some Hornady 180xtp and a few other odds and ends from when I had a 10mm a few years ago.  Question is do you guys get major muzzle flash for the Hornady ammo?   I didn't notice it with any other ammo shot but with the Hornady it was a major fireball that I could see when fired?  Thanks for any help.

Welcome Vmr!

I have never shot the Hornady ammo indoors so it's not quite apple to apple in comparisons.  But I never noticed any muzzle flash with either the 155 gr XTP or the 180 gr XTP.  That is both with a G29 and a G20.

Thank you for the reply sure the indoor lighting had a lot to do with it.

The only fireballs I've noticed from my Glock 29, is with the 180 V-Crowns and it looks like a dragon with Underwood 9x25 Dillon ammo.
The 10mm Auto. No matter how you justify it, the .40 S&W was created for women, and pansy federal agents :-D

I've experienced the same thing with Hornady loaded 180 great XTP. Indoors it produces pretty big flash, much like power pistol handloads.

This is my carry load and I am considering finding a new load because of it.
