    I use Hornady 165 grain SST in my .30-06 and get 1.2" groups at 300 yards (bang-flop on deer) with 2900 fps m.v. For elk, it's Hornady Interbond 180 grain that prints 2.4" at 300 yards. My 1911 loves the XTP and TAP. Rifle and pistol projectiles are well made and are very consistent in dimensions and weight. You won't be disappointed.

    I also use Hornady TAP 124 gr 9mm in my XD-9 service model. Very confident with it, concerning performance and accuracy.

    I've used Hornady JHPs in both my Bersa 380 and my M&P 9mm and really see no difference in the accuracy and reliability compared to the Cor Bon DPX which is what I usually use. Ballistics tests say that DPX has the better penatration.

    I have Hornaday Critical Defense 90g in my Sig 232. In my larger caliber guns, no.

    Never been a big fan of the XTP for SD uses. I prefer something that expands a bit more. The XTP has such a shallow JHP and a thick jacket. I do have a lot of 124gr +P 9mm stockpiled in Uzi magazines. The small, closed up JHP and the +p pressures feeds good in my Uzi. It's not an every-day SD gun though. I think the Critical Defense has a lot of potential, and I'll try it in .380 and keep hoping for a .32 and .25 version. I just can't find any of it.

    I use Hornady Critical Defense in both my Main and BUG. It's great ammo.
