This is 40 S&W Hornady 180gr. XTP Hollow Point Ammo. XTP bullets are famous for their ability to expand reliably across a wide range of velocities.

Special features in the nose facilitate and control expansion on impact. XTP bullets consistently deliver the deep, Extreme terminal penetration needed for one-shot kills. The XTP is one of the most accurate pistol bullets ever made. This ammo comes packed in 20rd. boxes, 10 boxes per case.
