As I mentioned, I intend to continue working this load up to higher velocity but frankly, I'd consider this to be acceptable performance for a self defense load.
We 10mm fans sometimes get too wrapped around the axle on power and forget that for a human target that extra power is often a waste. It generates greater recoil, muzzle blast, and TSC but not necessarily larger or more effective wounds. One of the greatest advantages of the 10mm in my book is versatility. Just because I *can* shoot nooklear death blast boolits doesn't mean I have to.
Just here for the 10mm death ray talk.
