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.
