    Hi Yall, I am looking to buy some 10mm bullets from underwood, and saw the Hot stuff at 1400-1600 fps,that I would use for maybe Zombies or Hoggs, but the lower 1250-1300fps for EDC, "Q".? is it going to be ok on the factory G20 barrel (little under supported) to shoot the high power stuff without getting a more supported barrel like KKM or such..would like to stay stock..was going to ge 50rd boxes for stock pile...:dunno:

    Hello!

    I don't really understand your question. But will make a few comments that may ast some light on your decisions.

    Generally speaking when looking at pistol ammo the higher velocity equates to lower penetration. This is because pistol bullets are more fragile and lack sectional density to provide deep penetration.
    SO such vel will only be attained with the lightest bullets. These bullets will likely profuse horrific shallow wounds on "Zombies". The will not penetrate a much tougher hog adaquity you may well kill them, but I doubt you will recover them.

    Pick a good bullet a proven bullet. Then be sure it functions and shoots accurately. Then practice with it and carry it.

    For hunting I recommend the Hornady XTP in 180 or 200 loaded to 1300+ and 1200 respectively.

    If hunting I would look hard at a good art mkt barrel then hand load it for optimal performance.

    I thought that the hotter stuff in the 1600fps range was the harder hitting round, but mostly refering to the "smileys" bulge on the case end, don't want a KB out the back of the case and blow the mag and sides out. I was thinking the 135gr and the 185gr rounds..

    Let's cut to the chase here...

    ALL Underwood Ammo, (and anything else on the market today), is just fine shot through a stock G-20 barrel!!!!!!!1!!!1!!!

    I'm sick of this dis-information coming up again.. and again... and again... and again... :upeyes:

    FACK an aftermarket barrel, except for the most discriminating of re-loaders.

    Clear enough? :)

    The bulge you are talking about with the stock barrel and factory ammo is just a bulge from the stock barrels generous chamber, it is not a smiley. Smileys are caused by over pressure rounds, not from the stock eat anything even when it's abused barrel. A smiley is a distinct grove in the case.

    The stock barrel will safely shoot any factory loaded ammo, unless said ammo specifically states "fully supported". I think Swampfox was the only one to do that anyway.
     
  7. Underwood has a caution on using his 1300 FPS ammo in Colt Delta Elites due to an unramped barrel. He has a 1200 FPS load for DE's. No such warning for other pistols.

    A while ago I contacted Glock on this sort of issue. They stated very clearly that all factory ammo within 10mm spec is safe to shoot in all Glock 10mm pistols.

    Yeah there is. No 200 gr. XTP in a G29. Get a lighter load, IIRC.
     
  10. Is Underwood Ammo considered factory ammo?

    Thanks Gents, I guess I will save $165 clams on not getting a KKM barrel, I just wanted to be safe on the fact that if I went Hog hunting with the hot stuff, I didn't have to worry about a BlowOut, from the case not being fully supported at the bottom...Kool.:cool:

  15. I think that was Swampfox for the 29.

    Underwood has a Delta Elite specific load.

    yeah just for the 'Colt Delta" pistol, something about not having a ramp :dunno: i'm going to switch on my next order to the 180 grains, it's just the 200's weren't nearly as hurtful to the hand as i though (they where on sale!) so i felt i should stick up for them! :supergrin:

    Kevin emailed me and said those DE loads are loaded to about 1240fps instead of 1200. Still safe and still powerfull.
