New Federal 180gr JSP!

Vital-Shok 10mm 180gr JSP at 1275 fps. http://www.federalpremium.com/news/new_products.aspx Impressive for a factory load.

Any thoughts on how this soft point would be expected to perform in gel as compared with a HP such as XTP?

This is almost the exact same numbers as the Silver Tips advertise....I'll wait to see the real life chrono on these first.

Burns, the COR-BON 180 gr BCSP I tested showed absolutely no expansion at 1,228 fps but they have a history of gimmicky products that fail to perform as advertised (Glaser safety slug). On the other hand, the Federal American Eagle .357 mag 158 gr JSP I tested at 1,182 fps showed very moderate expansion and deep penetration. Nearly ideal for hunting or large animal defense. Federal's description of the product claims controlled expansion so I'd expect less expansion and more penetration than an XTP.

Very nice. If I needed factory ammo, that would be worth a serious look -- IF they run as advertised.

ATK (Federal/Speer/CCI) generally does a pretty good job at delivering their claims it seems to me. Even it's around 1250 from a G20, that would be cool load and very capable. It's bonded and kind of makes me think of a hunting version of the Gold Dot.

Funny you say that. An old timer gun store guy I know and respect, was just saying the other day that he thinks 10mm is on the rise. He has seen and heard of a lot of renewed interest in the caliber. He personally has no interest in 10mm so I doubt he was just saying it.

Wow, that is very impressive for Federal 10mm. That's about 650 ft/lbs of energy.

Well, they sort of did. The Silvertip load was about the best we had for a while, from the big three that is, even if it was a little feeble. Maybe this will prompt them to step it up a bit. If anything would get there attention it would be something they perceive as "real" competition.
