Hornady XTP load data????????????

why can't i find laod data for Hornady XTP? i picked up a box of XTP 140gr 38cal/.357 pt #35740, and dispite searching the internet now for over an hour i cant find a load data chart.

i plan on using win 296, unless i find some chart saying, dont use 296, or you will have the best accuracy, velocity, consistencey hands down if you use __________.

i found lots of people offering their recipe, but i cant find any XTP chart. one would think i could find a link somewhere. does anyone know of such a link, or where to find such a chart.

Hornady likely has it in their reloading manual (they have pretty much all the XTP bullets in there).

They came out with the 8th edition recently, so if you grab a copy of that I'd expect it to have the data you seek.

Hodgdons data for 357 is out of a 10" barrel, something to think about.

For about the price of that box of bullets, you could have the Hornady Reloading manual and you would know exactly how to load your XTPs. Don't know about you, but a hour of my time is worth more than the cost of the manual. It's also nice to have more than one source of reference when developing new loads, even if you do find a online source for your particular components

Public library's are an excellent source of reloading manuals also. I may not have the Lyman manual, but I've got a photocopy of all the load data for 9mm, 38spl, 357 magnum and 45acp. All for less than a dollar.

the Hornady manual states that a 140 grain XTP using 296

Start 15.8 grains with a C.O.L of 1.590 muzzle velocity-1150 fps

Max 18.2 grains same C.O.L muzzle velocity-1350 fps

These were tested out of a Colt Python with a 8" barrel

These loads are for .357

XTP reloading data?

Hornady manual has it of course. Lee, Second edition, Modern Reloading also has loads for the XTP series, as well as lead bullets and most others. Both manuals have lots of useful information. Well worth the effort to find, purchase, read, and place at the reloading bench for future reference. Good Luck
