Without trying to sound too picky or OCD, one factual error in the article listed an original Norma loading of 170 grains @ 1300 fps. I still have original Norma loads and it was 165 grains @ 1400 fps. The 200 grain listing is correct @ 1200 fps.

Both are correct.

There was a 170 grain load listed at 1300 fps.

There was a 165 grain load listed at 1400 fps.

The Shadow (Wade) has done pull-downs on these plus the 200 grain JTC.

....and I'm shooting 165 grain Sierras at a tad over 1400 fps through my Colt.  It's the newer stainless.   Measured through a old Oehler 35p.  Coming up on 1000 rounds through it and it's doing fine.

Which is why I said, "of the day." The metallurgy used in the Colt pistols is much better now.

But you guys knew that of course.

And how did you know I was putting them loads through a new Colt or the older version?

This is great information.  It helps us relatively new to 10mm.

Thank you for posting the article.  Like any published article the author has to come up with parameters of how to run the test/evaluation.  And then the readers have an endless list of.. "well... he shoulda done it this way".  I suppose if they did it exactly the way we wanted we'd come up with different complaints.  But I will take exception to using using one kind of ammo for each gun.  That instantly makes the results invalid save but for a single kind of ammo.  It leaves the reader with the impression the Ruger 10mm has a ftf problem.  But with only a single ammo type used the reader is left with no idea if the Ruger actually has a problem or if it was only with one kind of ammo.  In any case, I would 100% flunk any gun that did not run 100% with the intended carry ammo.

I wasn't speaking about you. I was speaking about the old loads and the old guns.

The DE is a classic 10mm, which in my opinion saved the round from extinction. I plan on getting one in the future.
