I'd say an accurate and ready shooter would do better, even with the worst ammo.

As a fellow Pennsylvanian/Glock 29er, I would say that anything in 10mm is good for our woods. I have never heard of a PA black bear attack, or really any other 4 legged threat....

That being said, I carry Underwood 200 XTP in my 29, but I would feel safe with my Underwood 180 FMJ as well.

I carry DT 200 gr. WFNHC except when hunting (CA) Buffalo Bore 155 gr copper. They are 100fps more than the DT 155gr copper

any of those will do for black bear defense, but you get more ammo for less money with Underwood without losing quality or velocity.

Ryt is right. Underwood actually meets and exceeds its stated velocities, doubletap falls miserably short. So underwood is a far far better value! For woods protection I would feel well-protected with their 180gr xtp, 200gr xtp, and 220gr hardcast. If your choice is between 200gr fmj's and 220gr hardcast, I say definitely go with the hardcast!

yea i was leaning towards the underwood stuff. as stated you get more for your money which is always a good thing.

ok then let me ask yall this with double tap off the table.

underwood
1) 180gr XTP
2) 200gr XTP
3) 220gr hardcast

my concern is performance out of the 29 barrrel is there enuff barrel to make these rounds perform properly

Not true at all. My test are for ammo to ammo comparison. To help people select the best ammo for the situation. Doesn't Matter what pistol you have. Since your barrel is a little shorter you just have to reduce the figures down a bit.

i under stand that. but by reducing the numbers how does it affect does the bullet? do the hollow points still expand as they should? how much penetration am i loosing by knocking 50fps off of a 220gr hard cast round?

Sorry but your asking about things now that have nothing to do with chronographing ammo.

Even if you had a Glock 20 like I do my spreadsheet has nothing to do with expansion and penetration.

However most rocket scientist could take my results and figure it out.

YMMV !

The 200 grain DT fmj is one of my favorite loads running out of my Glock 29. They are loading a thick jacketed Montana Gold bullet that is very tough. Penetration would not be an issue. Plain off the shelf 200 grain Blazer loaded with the Speer 200 grain TMJ is a fine load as well that would be worth testing in your Glock.
