10mm hornady critical duty 175gr?

  1. I've seen the critical defense 165gr but this just popped up on cabelas, is it real or a typo? The critical duty is a lot better than the critical defense line IMO.

  2. The website has them for 40S&W, but nothing for 10mm. Maybe they are the real deal and their own website hasn't actually put it up there yet.
     

  3. Hornady customer service confirmed this is 10mm 175gr critical duty made on contract only available through cabelas.

    I wish hornady would update their literature to show this load. Fps and gel #'s would be nice.

  5. If you want to standby for a little while, Intercooler just ordered some and when he gets them will put them on a chrono. You can see his posts over on 10mmfirearms.com.

  6. Interesting...I'll pick up some on my next trip down there. If it performs well, I'll rotate some with the Silver Tips I've got for SD/carry ammo.
     
  7. It should be here Monday or Tuesday. I should be able to get numbers Wednesday on them.
     
  8. Sounds good. thanks!
     
  9. I can only hope these will be the 1200fps factory load we all want with perfect .65" expansion and 16-17" of penetration. My guess? 1130fps, .62 expansion, 15.5" in 4 layer denim.
     
  10. The old Hornady 180's were 1155 FPS. If they kept the same load maybe 1175? I didn't realize we don't have a 180 XTP gel test yet.

    Plenty of neat ones there to see when he gets his Witness fixed.
     
  11. 180 xtp 10mm #9126 as loaded by hornady? Tnoutdoors9 did that one, looked real good for duty/carry.
     
  12. Yep..

  13. I sent some to Andrew. Let's see what he gets.

    If they keep them close to their 180gr XTP, velocity should be between 1150-1200 fps. I got some for the .40 and they don't expand so great, it's a long bullet but penetration is good. This bullet needs more speed.
     
  15. The 180 XTP?
     
  16. Yea the Hornady 180's. I will send these down with some of the other new ones to be done too.
     
  17. That would be great, thanks.
     
  18. I did a 180 gr XTP test but it was a hand load. I hope eaa doesn't take a year and a half to fix the Witness.

  19. Penetration was 13.25".
