I haven't had any personal experience with 300 gr XTPs in my rifle,but my friend brought some Hornady factory 300 gr loads to my house,and we shot them into canned vegetables,logs,and the dirt backstop. We used his Redhawk with the long barrel. None of the recovered bullets had expanded at all,so maybe they need to be driven fast,say at .444 velocities to get proper terminal performance. I don't know if they will expand reliably on deer at the slower speeds. Of course,this only an example of one,so others may have experienced better results than we did. Hopefully you'll hear from other members using the 300s.
