Shot real 10mm for first time

All I have to say is wow what a difference those couple hundred feet per second make.Went from shooting Armscor 10mm to Underwood 10mm 180grn FMJ at 1250fps.The gun actually controlled the recoil very well,feels like a 9mm to me.This has 625ft lbs vs 435 for armscor. I will try their 135grn next at 800 ft lbs.

Heh, heh, heh... When I bought my 1006 in the summer of '91, full-house Norma loads were still all you could find. 1,300fps truncated cones, and 1,420fps JHP's!



And then when Master Reloads offered "range" ammo, I don't know what kinda powder they were using... but you could flash fry a hotdog in the muzzle flash!

10mm was a literal BLAST to shoot in those days!

Yeah, I can't wait to shoot my new 10. Never shot a 10 before. I have a good friend that's planning on hand loading me some 10 soon. Probably get him to put the heat to a few hundred of 'em.

Gotta love 10mm.

I'd like to see still more 10mm chambered 1911 offerings.

Mine is a Wilson Hunter with double-chamber compensator (an older version no longer offered by Wilson... but it should be).

I'd like another 10mm, possibly a long-slide from EB.

Try some 155's at about 1450 fps. You might have to get some hand loads for a really serious 10mm round. What 10mm do you have?

What pistol do you have?

I've been shooting 10mm since 1992, and love it. It was a G20, never warmed up to the Glock, but love the caliber. I now have a Ruger SR1911 in 10mm. The 1911 chassis seems to handle it very well; when shooting .45 ACP from my Springfield 1911 and then switching to the Ruger, the recoil is pretty similar. You can still tell the 10mm has more punch. I compare it to someone putting their hand on your shoulder and moderately pushing you (.45), so someone giving you a hard shove (10mm).

There's a lot of latitude for handloading it, from loads as mild or maybe even milder than a .40 cal, up to something as stiff as a .357 Magnum, only better.

Those Wilson Hunters are cool guns.


Iím just beginning to get into 10mm 1911 after coming from a G20.

Iím already enjoying the round more in my two 1911 pistols. Sights, trigger and feel on a 1911 are hard not to love.

From mild to wild !!!


The 10mm can cover it.

180 @ 1250 is rather tame. You can't really experience 10mm unless you hand load.

I don't think any 10mm load will phase the model 52000 I got.Its almost 4lbs loaded.

Hornady still make those? They used to offer a JHP with those dimensions in the late '90's.

Free recoil energy for 10mm is more than three times that of 9mm . . .

I have a few 10MM's...Glocks and an XDM 5.25'' model.

I only went with those for now because I wanted to get high-cap pistols and mags while we still could, WA gun grabbers are constantly looking to ban high-cap everything.

One thing I did in order to shoot the hotter Underwood ammo is upgrade the guide rod and switch to a heavier recoil spring. The last thing I want is to batter the frame or another guide rod with a too light of a spring that's already happened. I went with a 24 lbs spring for the Glocks and a 22 lbs spring for the XDM and a lead filled guide rod that's 5 times heavier than the stock rod. They can all still shoot and cycle the lighter loads just fine.

Now any more 10MM's will be 1911's.

What gun do you own? I love the 10! Sig target ammo is pretty sweet.

Love my S/A TRP 10mm. I know 'felt' recoil is subjective, but to me 10mm is more comfortable to shoot than my TRP .45 ACP.

When I shot 10mm for the first time I wasn't sure what to expect. The XDM makes it pretty civilized.

Earlier this year I shot my buddies Sig p220 legion 10mm and didn’t know what to expect, I was expecting a hard recoil but was pleasantly surprised in that the p220 was quite pleasant with not all that much recoil and quite accurate. It actually seemed to have less recoil than the .45 I was shooting. To be honest I don’t know what kind of ammo my buddie had and I was shooting but it changed my mind on Shooting a 10mm

So far I've tried it in 5" full rail & 5" 1911's as well as a G20.

Most of what I've run through the G20 was Winchester Silvertip 175gr. It ran reliably, smoothly and with very agreeable recoil. I killed countless water moccasins, rattlesnakes and a couple hogs with it when I was in a swampy hunting club. When I joined the 12,000acre club they told me to "get a G20 and extra mags...and keep it with you whenever you are on the property". First day scouting I found out why. Snakes, gators, hogs everywhere.....and luckily an occasional deer (never could get a 10mm range shot on one, though).

On the way off club grounds was one unpaved road that led to a single paved road that led ultimately to civilization. My mistake was thinking that the first convenience store on that highway was in civilization......it wasn't. Turns out is was way more dangerous after dark than anywhere in that swamp. I realized right away that the meth epidemic was not only real.....but it was in walking distance all around the club grounds. Mad the mistake of fueling up at that store one time....never again. Was glad I'd left the G20 in holster.



Back to recoil....I'm finding my two 5" 1911's are handling really smoothy with 180gr at 1,250+ fps. Confident that I'll work up a 180gr XTP to 1,300-ish that'll handle well and get'r done on the 10mm deer that eluded me those years ago on that club.

Not a thing in the world wrong with that G20....it's just that I'm more comfortable with the 1911, trigger, heft, grips & sights.

I'm scared to see the light.......I know it'll lead to more guns.

10mm is fun, especially when you reload. I use a 180Gr HP from Hornady over Blue Dot
(couple of tenths below max), and it is very accurate, PLUS no more expensive to load
than many other calibers.

You don't want to skimp on the gun wrapped around it, but really fun.

The hot stuff can be quite accurate, both hand loaded and factory. I have been with the 10mm almost three decades and I'll admit I've largely aged out of the hot stuff, but in 610s I still enjoy them sometimes.

This is 25 yards:

I think this one qualifies as medium, but in both 1911s and 610s this stuff has proven phenomenally accurate for me:

My standby hand load for hotter 610 shooting can't beat either of the factory loads above, but it has been good in many different guns:

That's scary experiencing something like that in a rural environment. I never interacted with any meth people. Are you sure it didn't feel creepy because it was night?
