Okay, now that we are past that.

I tried this with Hornady a while back, before Underwood came on the scene. I asked for their 200 grain XTP (a designed for 10mm bullet) at 1100 to 1150 fps. I was being conservative because I knew Hornady would be conservative. Their answer to me was the 1050 loading was their "full power" load in 200 grain 10mm, and there were no plans to increase the loading.

Still a good idea though. Good luck.

Hey 4949, you never know until you try.
Yes, I know that Underwood has good stuff. It's what I'm currently using, but was thinking that if we had several hundred email Hornady they may think about it. But it doesn't look like I'm gonna get any help...

Teech, as I said I would really like to see Hornady bump there 200 grain load up to 1100 or 1150 fps. Underwood is great ammo, but it would be nice to be able to pick up a box of decently powered ammo at a store every now and then. I will put another suggestion in to Hornady.

Edit: Done.

Hornady does'nt sell 50 rd. boxes
The XTP does'nt expand enough
The GD and Bonded GS are better

Not interested


That one dude who wrote the fake letter - way too much time on your hands "broseph". It was'nt even funny - total FAIL

Also, GD's are bonded and they do hold up to the slightly higher velocities the 10mm offers over the 40. Try those 180 gr. Bonded GS's out, they impressed me at a measly 1220 FPS.

Be happy your 10mm Glocks are reliable first and have good capacity in a cartridge that's just a bit more powerful than the other options. That's all it is and all it will ever be. Want a 44mag? Buy one.

I have a .44, not what I was talking about in the OP.
4949, I completely agree. That is what I was getting at in my OP. thanks for helping out.

my experiences...

Ive never had any problems with a 180gr XTP holding up out of the Mech Tech. And my handloads are moving WAY FASTER than any 1300fps out of that 16" barrel...

I dont see the problem here i guess.

But, i am all for any company trying to "improve" such a great round! My letter has been sent!

Yeah... Definitely too much time. I didnt find it funny either
