100 years ago, Ruger founder and firearms legend, William B. Ruger was born. In honor of the man who created one of the most iconic firearms brands in American history, Hornady has partnered with Ruger to offer commemorative ammunition in limited-edition packaging. These collector’s items include the popular 204 32 gr V-Max load and the 480 Ruger, big-bore hunting favorite. Packaged in soft-touch, suede-like packaging with embossed foil logos and a woodcut-effect image of Mr. Ruger, these packages are sure to grace the shelves and display cases of collectors the world over.
This commemorative ammunition is custom-grade ammunition from the Hornady factory. Built to the tightest tolerances for peak performance rivaling and sometimes surpassing handloads in many guns. Hornady XTP bullets were designed for hunting, self-defense, and law enforcement. One of the great things about the XTP bullet is reliable performance, it features controlled expansion where six serrations divide the bullet into six symmetrical sections. These sections weaken the jacket to allow controlled expansion at low velocities and ensures fragmentation does not occur at high velocities. The XTP bullet is really known for its stopping power. They were designed from the beginning to expand reliably at a variety of handgun velocities and deliver deep, terminal penetration with every shot. Most handgun bullets are designed to perform at a single factory-specified velocity where the XTP bullet is designed to offer controlled expansion over a range of velocities. Each XTP Bullet has a swaged core and drawn copper jacket to ensure uniform expansion and in-flight stability. Adding a cannelure to this bullet keeps the core and the jacket locked together while also allowing the cartridge case to tightly crimp, adding security at high velocities. This ammunition is new production, non-corrosive, in boxer primed, reloadable brass cases.
