Hornady XTP 124 Gr Reload Data


So, I’ve written about reloading the Hornady 147 grain JHP round on a different post and now I want to talk about the 124 grain Hornady XTP JHP. I love loading and shooting both the 124 & 147 grain JHP rounds for target practice and defense ammo. I don’t suggest carrying hand loaded ammunition for personal defense ammo but it’s good to have a nice stock of JHP on hand for SHTF or some other Zombie scenario.

I hope you find the reload information helpful and please feel free to comment with you favorite load for this round.

    I just picked up some Horandy 9mm XTP 124 gr JHP bullets and noticed your post on them. Im loading them for several guns but will test them in my S&W 59 first. I noticed that several reloaders are agreeing on 1.10 for OAL Thats what Ill go with and 4.5 sounds like a good place to start with unique powder .Im going to use small pistol CCI mag primers.I recently built a 8ft loading bench in my basement,dug out all my stored reloading stuff from the 80s believe it or not. Keep the beer cold down there. Bill Clv Ohio

      Hi Bill, thanks for stopping by and commenting. Sounds like you are on your way to some fun times with loading up the Hornady XTP rounds! My only heads up would be to possibly reduce your powder charge down by 8-10% with using Magnum primers. I haven’t shot any loads with magnum primers yet, but will be loading some up soon and someone else told me that. In any case, should be ok either way as you are far from max load. Just thought I’d throw that out there. Good times reloading there and thanks again for the comment!

    Hi Josh. I have been reloading for several years and had a question on loading the Hornady 124 grain XTP/JHP bullets. I have Vihta Vuori N320, 340 and 350 powder and would like to know if I can use any of these powders for this bullet? The Lee loading book does not specifically list these powders for this bullet. But it does say that these powders can be used for 124 grain jacketed Bullets.. Could I use the VV N350 at 4.9 grains safely. I would appreciate your opinion. Thanks, Vinny Bosco

      Not sure how your comment went to spam, but it did. My apologies. I’m not quite sure either with those specific powders but I will reach out to a couple of reloading veterans and see if they have any information or reloading recipes!
