I use the concave cupped seating punch with XTP pistol bullets for 9MM, 357 Mag, 44 mag, 45 ACP, and 40 SW. Works fine for me. I think the flat seater punch wouldn't do well on the irregular shapes of the hollowpoint bullets. I've read that you can order special punches for XTP bullets at RCBS and I don't know if others offer this service or not. I've polished the edges of some seating punches to prevent the edge from marking the bullets. I used very fine sandpaper and a bullet I'm using behind the paper to help make the punch match the contour of the bullet nose.
