That is the truth! I suppose it is our nature to push, just to see how far we can go...The 10mm can be tailored with many bullet weighs and styles across a varied velocity/energy ballistics range to suit someones needs! This makes the 10mm one of the best cartridges to handload for, to suit my needs as well!

The Barnes "all copper" TAC XP Bullets work as advertised frrom my limited experience and testing. Would I trust that bullet for self defense? Yes I would!

It does not need to be pushed to 1500 fps to perform as your gelatin testing has shown! 1150 to 1250 fps would be very acceptable!

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.

Solid point of view right there Andrew!

Great post. Keep up the good work.

Intercooler sent me some Underwood 155 gr XTP and I'll probably do that pretty soon.
