    PLANTEMAN,

    I have use Autocomp with loads for .380 ACP and 9mm both using FMJ and Hornady's XTP HP bullets. I do not own a 10mm so I have done no testing for that caliber.

    As a powder for smaller high pressure loads like these I like Autocomp. It meters well, devivers a consistent burn/pressure through-out, it is considered on the slower burning side of the charts.

    Hodgdon's 2013 Annual Manual lists for 10mm using 155g Hornady XTP HP;
    Autocomp 8.0g (velocity: 1,254 fps / Pressure: 29,000 PSI) up to 8.9g (velocity: 1,362 fps / Pressure: 35,700 PSI)
    They are testing out of a 5" barrel with an OAL of 1.260"

    I hope this helps you. Good luck and be safe

    PLANTEMAN... "Thanks for the info, I load for 9mm as well what do you load autocomp for 9mm?"

    Now a days I only use 124g bullest for all my 9mm loads. Just for comparison and reference I will list what the Factory ammo number are coming in at.

    Federal "American Eagle" 9mm Ammunition
    124g RN FMJ bullets
    Velocity - Box listed @ 1,150 fps / 1,044.6 fps my 6 shot average @ 73 degrees
    OAL - 1.150"

    Casing - Winchester (used) tag - WIN
    Case length - .754
    Primer - Federal small pistol #100
    Bullet - 124g RN FMJ .355 dia. (Precision Delta)
    Bullet length - .606"
    Powder - Winchester Autocomp @ 5.0g
    Powder Range - 4.7g to 5.2g (LEE Revised)
    Burn rate - #36 (Hodgdon)
    Bullet seating O.A.L. - 1.150"
    Velocity - 1,104.2 fps my 5 shot average @ 73 degrees
    Crimp - Light
    Test Gun - Glock 17 w/4.49" Barrel

    Hornady "Custom" Factory Ammunition
    124g XTP HP
    Velocity - Box listed @ 1,110 fps
    My 6 shot average @ 73 degrees G19- 1,134.2 fps
    My 6 shot average @ 73 degrees G26-1,058.2 fps
    OAL - 1.060"

    Case - Remington (used) Tag - RP
    Case length - .754"
    Primer - Winchester WSP (Winchester Small Pistol)
    Bullet - 124g XTP JHP .355" dia. (Hornady)
    Bullet length - .575"
    Powder - Winchester AutoComp @ 4.5g
    Powder range - 4.2g up to 4.9g (Hornady)
    Powder burn rate - #36 (Hodgdon)
    Velocity - G19 - 1,030.6 fps & G26 - 966 fps my 6 shot average @ 73 degrees
    Bullet seating OAL - 1.060"
    Crimp - Light
    Test Gun(s) - Glock 19 w/4.02" barrel and Glock 26 w/3.46" barrel

    These loads have tested to be not only reliable out of each pistol but very accurate as well.

    Let me state here that these are my results coming from my pistols firing from my hand. You must do your own tests and as always start low and work your way up.

    Good luck and be safe.
