Article on testing the 10mm Auto Hornady ammo.

Here is an article I put together on the 10mmAuto, Hornady ammunition, and the Glock 20.

Opinions please.

Did you really mean to write irreverent?

"Some say the 10mm is irreverent, hard to shoot, expensive, and outdated."

Nice article.

Great job! I've had 10mms since my Delta Elite in 1987. Have a like new S&W 1006 bought in 1990, and have had a Glock 20 for some time. Thanks for the writeup.

Good article. Thanks for the tip on Clear Ballistics gel.

Do you have a reference to read about the .40 Super predating the 10mm (see your quote below)? The people you mention and the timeline don't agree with what I have read in the past about the development of the modern-day .40 Super cartridge. It makes no difference to the subject of your excellent article, I'm just curious.
"Col Cooper then began developing the .40 Super and around 1980 he collaborated with Thomas Dornaus and Michael Dixon who were working toward the same goal as Col. Cooper the .40 Super evolved into the 10mm Auto we have come to know and love."

.40 Super? Never heard of it.

Nice article. One thing I see that interests is what I've already said in times past, that you don't have to push bullets incredibly fast in order to get good results. Not that any of these loads are slow, but they are slower than what most 10mm guys like to brag about. Slowing it down just a touch can be a good thing.

That 180gr XTP for example, doing roughly 1150 fps still penetrated well and expanded nicely. That would be effective on the street or in the woods. Would driving it 100 fps faster make it far more deadly? Nah. I also like that these are speeds easily achieved even from a .40, which is my preferred 10mm.

Yes, but you know that some of us have an appreciation for speed for other reasons besides expansion and penetration...

CorBon used to sell 40 Super ammo, not sure if they still do or not. Sierra has loading data for the caliber.

What can I say? I had a bicycle accident and brain injury almost five years ago. And a 35-year memory loss. It has mostly come back, though, but not all.

Most of the information I found in various books I have collected but this is a page I referenced to corroborate what I read.

Thank you all for the kind words, I do appreciate them.

I know about memory loss. But mine, I'm afraid, is just from getting old (or early Alzheimers). I used to get by because I never forgot anything. Now, if I don't write it down, it disappears. I remember my locker combo from 7th grade, but not the name of the guy I spoke to 20 minutes ago.

Thanks for the link. After reviewing the contents of the above reference, including the section on the .40 Super cartridge further down in the text, it's fairly obvious that the early work of Cooper/Dornaus/Dixon in the late 1970's and early 1980's merely used the name ".40 Super" for early incarnations of the 10mm Auto concept and it bears no resemblance to the modern-day .40 Super round developed by Triton in the late 1990's. That clears up the confusion, thanks.
