What is your favorite 10mm load for:

1. Practice

2. Self defense

3. Woods / Outdoor carry

Feel free to elaborate..

Mine would be:

#1 Underwood 180 grain range supply for practice. In the last set of tests Taylor and I did the Range Supply performed superbly in all three guns tested

#2. I like the Underwood 165 grain Gold Dot. The mid Range loads appeal to me for the balance of speed weight. I also like the newer velocity XTP from Hornady in 155 to 180 grain.

#3. Since this wasn't intended to be an Underwood commercial,...I will go with the Federal 180 grain Trophy Bonded. If I were in Alaska I would switch to the monolithic solid copper dangerous game load from Buffalo Bore or a coated hardcast load from Underwood.

200gr wnfp handloads
180gr xtp, though the 200gr sgdhp looks good, 200gr hst or 180gr vcrown look good too.

I agree Fred, the ten chambered pistols are a lot of weight to lug around, especially as we get older.

A chest rig balances the 10mm weight well. That's the only way I carry my Glock 20 and 4.2 inch Redhawk in the woods.

I like The Accurate mold 40-195G hardcast bullets powder coated and sized to .401 over around 8.7 grains of Longshot. This load is safe in my gun. The slugs weight about 190 grains with my alloy...BHN 15. 1.260" OAL. They run at 1254 in my Glock 20SF barrel. I use these for practice and the woods.
I also like a 200 grain over 7.2 grains of CFE Pistol for a soft practice load.
For all out woods loads: 200 WFNGC running hard with AA9.
If I need more oomph I bring my 45 Colt Redhawk.

People are relatively soft targets. I am fine with any of the service calibers. The full size 10 is for bigger/tougher things I may find in the woods.

Hey amigo.... I no longer have the 10's but I have had a 'number of them,' and my loads for 'play,' were 180/200gr hard cast. SD loads, on ranch, the same... I rarely packed it in town, but 180gr XTP's (factory loads) . Again, out on the ranch 180/200gr HC bullets 10.5/11.0grs Blue Dot. Ran those for years this way, 'never' a problem, in OEM barrel.

And you can't go wrong with the.45 Long Colt, 10/45.
