    I agree. As far as a defensive load I think it would be great for what most people want in a defense load with the combination of performance and control. But no, it’s not a true 10mm with 10mm ballistics but I would be a good SD load. All of my carry guns are loaded with HST.

    I'm waiting until I can get them for less than $30 per 20 rounds, but I will definitely be trying them.

    I’ve seen them under 24.00 but then you have shipping.

    I was looking through my chrono notes. Noticed the Hornady Custom 180 XTP was faster than this HST, and the ones I tested was before Hornady moved it to 1275 fps. But the HST is on par with the CD.


    Hornady Custom 180 XTP
    3.78" - 1128 & 509
    4.60" - 1210 & 585

    Hornady Critical Duty 175
    3.78" - 1083 & 456
    4.60" - 1146 & 510

    The chopping block has tested it. This picture came up on my YouTube. The bullets look impressive! [​IMG]

    The best part about those loads is,
    they are easy to duplicate in the 40s&w,
    Hodgdon data with Longshot powder.

    The 180gr XTP going 1160 fps in a
    four inch barrel and over 1200 fps
    in a 4.5'', my favorite JHP load.

    Wow, a .40 S&W will push a 180 over 1200? That's very impressive!

    An old post,

    https://www.glocktalk.com/threads/some-glock-20-questions.1647832/#post-23831429

    data from that post,

    ---------------------------------------------------------
    This is what I got in my
    guns,

    40 s&w,, RP brass
    CCI 500
    8 gr Longshot
    180 XTP HP
    1.135 TO 1.140 OAL
    3/8 Lee crimp
    50 degrees
    3900 ft elevation

    G27 OEM
    1114, 1094, 1098, 1097, 1106,,,,, AVE 1102 FPS

    G27 4.06'' th LW barrel
    1206, 1185, 1191,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,AVE 1194 FPS

    4.06'' LW G23 barrel in G27
    1178, 1182 ,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,AVE 1180 FPS

    G30 with a G29 4.6'' LW Ext
    10mm barrel, lots of free bore
    or would have been faster.
    1198, 1189, 1209, 1202, 1214,,,,AVE 1202 FPS

    G20 with 6'' LW 40 conversion barrel
    1249, 1247, 1246, 1224, 1259,,,, AVE 1245 FPS
    also throated long for loading to 10mm OAL with
    fat cast boolits.
    --------------------------------------------------------

    Many talk the 40 down and don't have any idea
    what it can do.

    Here is Hodgdon data, see for yourself, note when
    you compare the 10mm with the 40, the 40 has
    a four inch barrel and the 10mm has a five inch
    barrel, that can make a big difference.

    http://www.hodgdonreloading.com/data/pistol

    Some of my loads in the six inch barrel get around
    100 fps more than a four and 4.5''.

    That is 0.5 grains over max load of Longshot according the Hodgdon data you told me to look at. I'm attaching screenshots of the 40 with 180 and a 10mm with a 180.

    I dont doubt you're getting those speeds, because it's a 10mm starting load lol[​IMG][​IMG]

    You are looking at the wrong 180gr bullet,
    look at the 180gr XTP BULLET,
    eight grains is max.

    Different bullets have different pressures and
    max loads.

    Also notice with the two different 180 gr bullets,
    they have different max loads but both have close
    velocities, with in nine FPS.

    I dont see where to change the bullet other than weight.

    I found it now. The 8 grains with the XTP is actually less PSI than the Sierra bullet.

    My brother gave me the full Quickload and I dont even know where it is now.

    I believe the 10mm 200grn HST would be a good SD load even though it isn’t nuclear it would sure be a smooth shooting load out of a 20. My 10mm carry load has been Underwood’s Delta load with a 180 HP @1250fps. but I may give the HST load a try. I believe for SD that a 200grn HST would strike a very conclusive blow at the same time be very controllable without a lot of blast.
    I too like the large frame Glock grips.

    The rep emphasized control on follow up shots, with a bullet that would still drive deep and open HUGE. I think they will be the best 10mm load on the market. I can not wait to see chopping blocks video!

    I ordered some the other day and it will probably be my 10mm carry load. As far as a high power 10mm it isn’t but for a SD load it has a lot to offer, plus my favorite SD bullet.

    Gold Dots are my personal favorite.

    I agree with you though, it will be an IDEAL load for carry. It looks like real good medicine, for some real bad guys!
