Here are official gelatin results for all of the DoubleTap loads!

Discussion in 'The 10 Ring' started by MCNETT, Jan 27, 2005.


  1. I'd like to see an 85gr. XTP at 850 FPS and a 60gr. GD at 1100 FPS. There seems to be quite a demand for .32acp loads. Maybe we should get a thread opened about it. ;f
     

    Wanna kill these ads? We can help!
  2. Hi Mike, Any testing yet on the new 357 sig loads and the 9mm? I bet that heavy 357sig is nice. ;f
     

  3. I cannot find the 9x19mm data. I checked this thread, the Double Tap web site, and The 10 Ring. ^8
     
  4. As I read that the 10mm results were out of a stock G20, Thats awesome, as I have a new G30, but want to get a full size 10mm for the Hizzy...:)

    Were the .45 results from a G21 or G30???

    Thanks...

    no we are still waiting for resaults from mike for added ammunition and the 9mm selection, personally i would like to see a 3rd party do aditional testing to the new untested loadings, and for mike's self tested loads. iam not doubting mikes data,i just would like to see resaults from a non-partial party. in that testing i would like to see alot more additional barrier testing done, plain gel and denim are only half the story.

    Mike,
    I'm sure you're tired of this but... Please apply your talents to other calibers which are so in need. Personally, I'd like to see 450 SMC, 5.7x28 and .380 and .32 ACP loads from DT.

    Keep up the great work,
    Lee E. Murphy III
     
  8. the .40 penetrates farther, and expands more than the 10mm????

    In that loading, yes. The 10mm w/ 135gr loadings are known to be more explosive. I think that if there was a 135gr bullet design that was DESIGNED for the 10mm it would be different.

    Re the D.T. 215

    I like the overall of the 215 your using now compared with the 200 B.T. Without pulling a bullet, it looks like you changed up the crimp groove location slightly.....if so, it was a good idea.

    By the by, supposing what, around 21 inches penetration in Gel.,? Probably at least.

    Running the numbers, I see no difference at all between this loading and 41 mag loads. Sectional density is slightly better with the 215 gr. D.T., over the 220gr. 41 Mag. bullet plus, velocity is right there with the 41 mag especially with the 6" Glock barrels....Unless I am missing something, I now have my old 41 mag back ! I always did miss my 41 mag., but no longer...


    Thanks for working the combination out for the 215 load.

    regards

    Paul:) :) :)

    Could someone that has a chrono, please post MV's for the DT 10mm loads when fired from a 6 inch aftermarket barrel? Just picked up a Stormlake and would be interested in what the increases were. Thanks:beer:
     
  14. 10mm4ever:

    While I don't have any exact data, I have asked Mike McNett about the increase in velocity that could be expected with a 6" bbl. He said that for most of his loads the increase is about 100 fps and there is one load(I can't remember which one and I've since deleted the e-mail), that I think hops up 125-150 fps.

    I know this is far from specific, but it's good for ballpark figuring.

    I think you're spot on. The 200gr XTP's gain a little under 100 fps and the 135gr gain 100-150 fps as I recall.

    Well, after shooting a couple boxes of Double Tap's 215gr WFNGC hardcast, it has become official. My woods gun, in 41mag, has been retired forever, for my hiking outings. My unofficial, unscienentific results were amazing. The penetration was GREAT. Mike, by the way, the word of this round, for black bear protection, must be spreading. Last thursday I was at my lower property line, and came up on a bear. I had your ammo, in my G20 on my hip. The bear took one look at me, and ran off just slightly under your 1225fps! :) :)

    Is there going to be a 38+p load available. That's my self defense round. Thanks. Bill Wade
