    Since my G20 is only really used in the woods for SD, it's 220gr BB hardcast

    For strictly self-defense purposes shouldn't a 10mm pistol be loaded with 165-180 grain JHP ammo from a big American ammo company?

    I've only shot Hornady 155 gr. XTP factory ammo and 155 XTP handloads in my Glock 29SF. The factory loads chrono at 1,278 fps (faster than advertised) out of my 29 and function perfectly.

    Problem: Hornady has temporarily stopped production of that load :frown: and it is nowhere to be found. :sad:

    I don't want a nuclear 10mm load for SD.
    I do not want any more recoil than the 155 Hornady produces.
    I want to be able to shoot the ammo out of a stock Glock 29

    I don't think Underwood or Double Tap 150 gr. meet those criteria, Cor-Bon might but availability is an issue.

    Georgia Arms makes good ammo at a reasonable price. 155gr hp at 1375FPS. or 180gr hp at 1150fps if you want something to dig a little deeper.

    CDW4ME, this stuff might meet your criteria considering different gun sizes and all that. Like you, I don't want super-magnum ammo for self defense.

    looking at the big company's factory loads they aren't much over the performance of .40 S&W for SD. I really bought the G20 for the woods and the Underwood 200grn XTP is great for that. I think for SD I'll stick to the 27, 23, and the 30 with HSTs or GDs.

    If you want the best you reload your own. I use hornady xtp and nosler jhp 150-185 grain bullets with bluedot or win 231 and get 1250fps/750 lbs+ without even trying.

    If I had to buy off shelf it would be nosler, anything 150-185 grain.

    Unbelievable, only one hater and only one guy mentions Underwood. Usually on a 10mm thread you have a bunch of two things, Underwood fanboys like captaintrips and 10mm haters like Tiro Fijo.

    I seen that and thought it would be a great carry load but other than some 200grnXTP loads I luckily got from them I never find anything in stock. I check about 5 times a week.

    Probably not. The 10mm very possibly is the best semi-auto caliber on the planet.
