Hornady 9mm 124gr XTP at Cabelas

The title of my thread says it all. Hornady 9mm 124gr XTP at Cabelas. No limits.
I've been hunting for these or Speer Gold Dots for 10 months. I bought gobs last night and I see they are still available right now. Let us know if you got in on it too.

I load those or the Gold Dots with a stout charge of Longshot, this makes for some serious self defense loads. I don't remember what the velocities have been with that combination, but I know it's nothing to sneeze at. I can remember what the 147's have been pushing, which is about 1050 fps, so I know the 124's are really getting out there quick.

I've been trying to keep an eye out for 200 or 230gr .451XTPs but the one time I could find them the last few months I didn't have money in the component fund. Sigh. Might have to buy a set of Hornady dies just to get some.

I get a very consistent 1200 fps from my Beretta.

Thanks Guy, I've been waiting since last January to find some of these. I'm running about 1150 fps through a M&P Pro with AA7...it's a nice load.

Oh ya, AA#7 should perform very well for those, and will probably produce similar results as Longshot does.

I use WAP for my pistol loads.

Hodgdon should throw you a few free jugs of Longshot here and there- you're one of their biggest spokesmen! PH

No kidding Potatohead, I am no doubt one of their most loyal Longshot customers. And one more positive thing, is when the shelves have been all but empty, I can always seem to find Longshot and 296 / H110 on the shelf, which are the two powders I use the most of. But it's a simple explanation for me, I like stout handgun loads, hate dealing with spikey powders, and I like powders that fill the case up real good.

Man I just went to get some and I saw the price..... 19.99 a box!!!!!! The last order I got they were selling for 12.99 a box. Thank goodness I bought 12 boxes then. :D

Mohave-Tec , thank you. I've been searching for these or 124 Gold Dots for a loooong time.
Still want some GDs if they ever show up.

Ultratec, I didn't like 19.99 a 100 either but they haven't been less than 17.99 anywhere for since before Obama was elected. But I'll most likely never have to buy another one as long as I live.
......only 12 boxes? ;)

1SOW, I saw CCI Stingers on the shelf at Wal Mart yesterday as well. I have a small toolbox full of Stinger, Velocitor and Mini Mags so I left them for the other guy but I smell 22 coming back as well.
In the last 2 or 3 weeks I've loaded up on Varget, TiteGroup and 4831. In the same time frame I've purchased **** primers. It's a good thing too because I shoot a lot.
I'm glad you got some bullets.

I bought them in 2011 from Cabelas and at the time didn't think that I needed more, oh how dumb that was.

October 31, 2013, 08:19 PM
I saw all this in 08'. I still managed to get what I needed but I've been stocking up just in case it happens again.
