I picked up some Hornady 240 xtp in .430 for my 44 mag. I can't find any data for it so if someone could help with data that'd be great


Loads are going to be for my 6.5" 629 classic. Powders on hand are unique, HP-38, H110. I have Remington LP, and CCI LPM primers. So I want to know what primer to use with the H110 for heavy hunting loads and maybe unique for target loads

You changed your post while I was posting the previous...

Well, there's all the data from the Hornady manual - they make no mention of using magnum primers with any load listed.

Yeah I was trying to reply but somehow it went to edit and I dunno what happened. But its fixed now. Thanks for the data. i have heard that H110 and W296 like magnum primers but maybe someone will chime in

Your data lists the Winchester WLP primer which Winchester says is good for magnum and non-magnum loads.

Found this through Google

Looks to be the same just about with diff velocities for longer barrels but the max is same charge for H110

That appears to be from a different edition of the Hornady manual than I have - mine has the 240gr section at the bottom of the page and the FTX bullet data section at the top. The data looks to be the same though (as best I can tell). The info in the rifle section lists the test firearm as a Ruger Carbine with an 18" 1 in 38 twist barrel - the cartridge info is the same as for the pistol data above. I find it very interesting to compare the data from different editions and see how things change over time (and wonder why they changed).

This copy of the page from Hornady's manual is for handloading for 44 Rem Mag for use in a rifle, not a revolver.

I understand that and I united the changes where for longer barrels(that rifles have)
I was only comparing the new data to what some older data said. And if yoy look at the max load of h110 its the same in both. Only velocity is diff due to barrel length

I caught that as well, that's why I also gave the information on the test firearm from the rifle section. The information in the first post is from the pistol section of the manual. ;)

I've checked all my manuals and the rifle and pistol data are the same.

mebe007 have you checked for data on the Hornady website?

Hornady doesn't give any load data on their website, they want you to buy their manual. I just checked Hodgdon's data center and they don't have any load data for the Hornady XTP bullets, but they do have data for the Nosler 240gr JHP. The data for that bullet seems to fall into the same range as the Hornady data for the powders that are listed in both places.

Here's the excerpt from Accurate Arms load guide that shows the 240gr XTP

44 Remington Magnum
Barrel: 8.275" ■ Twist: 1-20" ■ Primer: WIN WLP ■ Bullet Dia.: .429"

powder bullet start max pressure COAL
---------------------------------------------------------------------
No.7 240 HDY XTP 14.5 1,145 16.1 1,302 34,800 1.560
5744 240 HDY XTP 21.6 1,243 24.0 1,413 35,000 1.580


Alliant, Ramshot, and Vihtavuori show some 240gr loads, but the XTP bullet isn't among them.
