We demonstrate the fabrication of (Ba,K)Fe2As2 superconducting wires through a powder-in-tube (PIT) method and hot isostatic press (HIP) technique. Several fabrication processes with different sintering conditions of pressure and time were examined. The measurements of magnetization, I-V characteristics, filling factor, and Vickers hardness clarified that the improvement of fabrication process and sintering condition is effective for the enhancement of critical temperature T c, which leads to the enhancement of critical current density J c in HIP round wire. Wires which are fabricated in different processes show significantly different T c and J c. The core density, which can be enhanced by sintering at higher pressures, is the main key factor for enhancement of J c in HIP wires, similar to pressed tapes. Changing the sintering time also slightly affect J c.
