Can anyone ID the bullet used on these 9MM rounds?

    They are BlackHills brand 124 Gr +P 9MM rounds I purchased a few years back --

    I can't recall which bullet they used -

    I did a little research and it seems like they were using Gold Dots but had changed to something else - pretty sure these are not Gold Dots.

    One post I read said they used Sierra HP bullets - another said Hornady XTP.

    Any one know which bullets these are?

    They look like Hornady XTPs to me. The XTP is a good bullet and Black Hills is known for producing quality ammo. Black Hills still makes that round with the 124gr XTP bullet and uses the XTP in many other calibers.

    I rarely shoot 9mm, so take this with a pound of salt. The hollow point cavities and jacket petal cuts on those bullets look very similar to 357 sig XTPs I have at home.

    I am taking a shot in the dark, I very easily could be wrong. I am not even familiar with BH products.

    Gold Dots have a rounded ogive, Sierras are a blunter truncated cone.
    I agree these are likely Hornady XTP.

    Looks like Hornady XTPs for sure. I have handloaded many of these.
