First Mas, thank you for your long service to the firearms community. I have enjoyed your writings for decades.

I have a Glock 29 that I CHL carry hunting, hiking and to and from those events. I loved the Winchester Silvertip load when it was still available. I have finally exhausted that last of my supply.
Are you aware of any currently available factory ammo that performs comparably? I have tried the Hornady options and they shoot well but seem to be designed for hunting rather than self defense levels of penetration. Any input would be appreciated.

Trouble with 10mm was, its lack of popularity as a police gun greatly limited field experience with it. The 180 grain FBI load essentially mimicked .40 S&W in 180 grain. The Silvertip worked great but as you've found, is very hard to find. Anything in the 155-165 grain, 1300 foot-seconds range with a proven hollow point design should get the job done.
