How can they get such high velocities and not enter into the +P or +P+ range? How come the big ammo companies don't do the same then?

I think overpenetration might be the issue on full power 10mm rounds. Apparently, 180 grain travelling around 1,000 fps is supposed to be the sweet spot for the 10mm (.40) round on people, so most manufacturers detune 10mm to .40 cal power. To make it more controllable and less likely to overpenetrate.

I guess.

So are you saying that the big ammo companies deliberately keep their velocity down for fear of overpenetration? Interesting.

A 180 jhp at around 1250fps works for me. Some of the 10MM screamers are with way lighter boolets right?

Why have a muscle car and put regular gas in it?

My bedside surprise is a Glock 20 loaded with DoubleTap 165 gr Golden Sabers clocked @ 1425 fps.

In my highly scientific laundry-soap-and-milk-jugs-filled-with-water experiments in the back yard, the round blew the first jug apart and turned it completely inside out. I've never seen a handgun round perform so explosively. Total penetration was 4 jugs, with a major dent in the 5th. Expansion was around .80".

This is REALLY good 10mm ammo.

You can even talk to Mike on the phone anytime.
He has a good setup there in UT. Lots of R&D time.
Give em' a call. I use his ammo exlusively in my 10mm's.
Clean ammo too. LOW flash. 1400+ fps out of a G29.
Try his sample pack. You will like it.
