Reloading data for the Hornady XTP 124 GR 9mm Jacketed Hollow Point
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.

Reloading recipe for the Hornady XTP 147 GR 9mm Jacketed Hollow Point
So in the last year I have been loading up a good bit of defensive ammunition for my 9mm pistols. This has pretty much been my favorite round so far which is the Hornady XTP 147 GR Jacketed Hollow Point (JHP) with CCI 500 small pistol primers and the Alliant Unique smokeless powder. So far I haven’t had a single feeding, firing or ejection issue with these rounds. I have shot these rounds through 2 different Glock 19s, a Glock 17, Ruger LC9 and my Springfield XDm.
If you are just starting out with reloading I recommend always using a smaller charge and working your way up. This recipe is just what has been working for me but by no means is is the industry standard and you should always do some research by the manufacturer before loading up. So here is what I have been using:
