    I was calling the other guy a dummy. There's a reason I have a Glock 20 :)

    Your comment, for the mental midget who has no clue how versatile the round is for those who reload. Let me know the next time you see a 200 grain 9mm round retard.

    That is because they are using bullets designed for the velocities the .40sw sees.

    For SD I think it is a good idea to just stick with your 27,23 or 30.

    From Underwood I like the 165's. I have four or five boxes of Hornady 155's or 165's, not sure which off hand, lower muzzle flash.

    I've come to realize he's just a troll, or really dumb.

    He has trouble wrapping his mind around other variables and aspects to anything. so 9mm to 10mm is in his mind just "1mm" difference. :rofl:

    I wonder if he says the difference between a F350 diesel dually and a ford ranger difference is just two tires. :rofl:

    Georgia Arms 180-gr Gold Dot new production (not reloaded) ammo.

    It's advertised as a load that does 1150-fps // which is 200-fps faster than a forty load. But in my G29 it chrono's at 1185-fps. That is also mo' better than a 185-gr .45 Auto from a Gov't 1911.

    The numbers I get thru my gun are not MAXIMUM performance but they are okie-dokie with me.

    Yep, that is a mere 6.78-fps Standard Deviation so I think it's decent quality and their QC is working.

    I like 10mm 180s and I like Gold Dots for SD, and I like the nearly 1200-fps that the GA ammo gives me for controllability and it also is very accurate out to 40-yards. That's all I need from a G29. Don't need an aftermarket barrel so I can shoot lead hard cast, don't need some fancy claims from McNett.

    Hickock45 has a video out where he shoots 220-gr hard cast bullets from a stock G20 and the rifling twist rate wasn't enough to stabilize the long length projectiles even at ten yards, and he had horrible keyholing issues.

    So, if you want to talk about hiking in bear country..... :rofl:

    You are referring to the Underwood ones right. I was thinking these would make great self defense loads. Such Light bullet has less chance of going out the side, right? Dumping 767ft lb of energy in the target should do the trick

    I have the 220 hard cast for back country use.

    Most 10mm loads are at 40 s&w velocity anyway. Hornady makes the critical duty in 10mm, a Cabela's exclusive.

    My sd load for my g20, is one of my best handloads. i carry new starline brass, loaded w/ 180gn. sierra jhp, and 9.4 gn. of long shot. im not certain on this load. its been a long time since i looked at the load data on it. i just keep a few mags loaded for when i carry or have it in the home. these are one of my most accurate handloads for 10mm.

    I think 10mm is best at SD with mid level loads, so from what's offered out there, the 180gr XTP and 155gr XTP from Hornady would be solid choices. Not full powered but good mid level loads that expand nice and penetrate well. Pushing really fast does nothing but hurt penetration, which isn't to say you won't get adequate penetration, but generally the bullet begins to break up an fragment which is what causes that, which is why I think something mid level makes more sense.
