Anybody got any suggestions for factory ammo for a Glock 40mos to shoot a hog with?

Herters makes some pretty warm loads that are loaded to the original factory specification and not the watered down crap that you find from Federal or Hornady. Buffalo Bore makes a hot 180gr Gold Dot load that is pretty decent as well. Double Tap also makes some good 10mm ammo.

If you were going to be reloading I would say use a 200gr XTP over a max charge of Blue Dot. I load both the XTP and a 200gr Cast bullet over Blue Dot. I'm shooting them out of a Kimber Stainless Target though.

For hogs, I'd want the biggest, heaviest slug I can find. The 230-grain hardcast from Doubletap is just about as good as it's going to get for a 10mm. AFAIK, it's the only 230-grain load available. And in a 20, loaded with 15+1 of it, you can actually feel the extra weight.

Underwood hard cast 220 grain worked just fine for me a couple of weeks ago

If I were limited to factory loads I would probably use the Federal load mentioned a few posts above or something heavy from Underwood.

800-X makes 10mm a beast with heavy bullets.  I am pushing 200gr XTP to 1250fps and 180gr XTP to 1300fps.  It meters very poorly due to the very being a very large flake powder so you have to weight each charge but it works very nicely.
