I'm sending the BCSP's back. They said their latest data showed 1275 FPS in testing.

Good luck. Most companies won't accept returns on ammo.

They are sending UPS for a pick-up. Kevin does and has and I sent some exploding Golden Bullets back to Remington. Cor-Bon said they stand behind their products 100%.

You'll have to wait until I melt the blocks for the full results but here are some preliminary numbers:

200 gr XTP over 8.3 gr 800-X

1,133 fps 17"
1,151 fps 22"

Both had moderate expansion, even through the denim.


Underwood 155gr Gold dot

1,449 fps 10.25"
1,459 fps 10.25"
1,436 fps 9.75"

All three had extreme expansion. They are still in the block, of course, but they appear to be about 1" at their widest.

BB calibration was 597.7 fps, 3.25" and 592.6 fps, 3.25"



I'm not happy with the wide difference in penetration with the XTP but it's a much better result than no expansion. I also shot some 200 gr XTP with AA#9, but not into gelatin. At 12.6 gr I got an average of 1,161. I'm going to keep playing with 200 gr XTP loads and I'll do another 200 gr XTP test down the road. Another 10mm shooter seems confident I can get over 1,200 safely with 800-X so we'll see how that goes.

I wonder what PBR is using? Guess we will see soon enough!

Yea those 155's aren't the current loading but still respectable. I know they would do a ton of damage!

What kind of penetration are you getting with the XTP's?

Hornady 200XTP, with 9.0 grains of IMR800X you should see right at 1200-1220 fps, 9.4grains will be at the 1240-1260fps depending on your setup.  Some people start to see smiles at the 9.4 grain loading with LongShot which runs 1240 fps also.
This is where these get touchy for some guns with loose chambers and case heads expand to fill the glock chambers.  Work with care if trying these levels...With this bullet I like the 800X loading better than the LongShot. ;D

Sounds good. I guess I'll keep working up, but I'll probably stop short of 9.4 if some people see issues there. It will be interesting to see what that bullet does in gelatin at 1,200 fps.

I was thinking the 200 grainers. But I would like to hear any and all information you are willing to give on the respective loads / bullet weights in XTP.

Did you ever test the 155 grain?

Yessir. Impact velocities and penetration depths are listed above for 200 gr XTP and 155 gr GD. I should have pics, video, and complete results up in a couple hours.

It will be interesting to see what we get out of all of the different rounds. I know the 155's in my wax test looked devastating what it did to that wax block! I would have no problem using these for HD!

I too really like what the UW 10mm 155gr Gold Dots are doing!
Gun Control?  Oh yes, the theory that becoming a victim is somehow morally superior to defending yourself & your family.  Makes perfect sense.
