    Load data for 32 ACP and 60 grain Hornady XTP's?

    I know it's not a sniper round ... but do any of you guys have a good load for these? Preferably one with a published source? I don't think my dad will let stuff into his new KelTec based on "some guy on the Internet said".

    I've found one load at handloads.org for 2.2 gr of 700x, but it's in the "some guy on the internet said" category.

    But at this point, almost any tried & true load for that bullet is appreciated. Citing a source is just preferred.

    Thanks!

    Sure out of my 7th Edition Hornady Manuel.

    "Clays: Min 1.4gr 800fps: Max 1.6gr 950fps
    Viht N-310: Min 1.5gr 800fps: Max 1.7gr 950fps
    Clays Int'l: Min 1.7gr 800fps: Max 2.0gr 950fps
    Viht N-320: Min 1.6gr 800fps: Max 2.1gr 950fps
    700 X: Min 1.8gr 800fps: Max 2.3gr 1000fps
    HP 38: Min 1.9gr 800fps: Max 2.3gr 950fps
    BullsEye: Min 1.9gr 800fps: Max 2.3gr 950fps
    Green Dot: Min 2.1gr 800fps: Max 2.4gr 950fps
    AA No. 2: Min 1.7gr 800fps: Max 2.5gr 950fps

    Clays Univ: Min 2.4gr 800fps: Max 2.6gr 1000fps

    Hornady says hand gun used was Mauser M 1914. Barrel was 3.6", 1 in 16" twist. Case was Hornady. Primer was Winchester WSP. C.O.L was .925"

    Hornady says they wanted a minimum of 800 fps for certain functioning. The most accurate powders they found were BullsEye, Green Dot, and Viht N-320."

    Here's a link to the Hodgdon Powder website: Personally, I would use 231 powder.

    Thank you both!

    Unfortunately Hodgdon lists only the 71 grain FMJ. Glad the Hornady book had some for the 60!
