Defender Ammunition 10mm 155 grain Horandy XTP (limited run)
« on: September 20, 2017, 07:45:07 PM »
I saw this on Instagram tonight. I have been asking and emailing them for the last year(since I picked up my G29) and finally they loaded a few. I told them if they loaded it I would post on the 10mm forum. I plan to get some this weekend and I'll send a few in for testing/evaluation.  Someone asked if they are "full load 10mm" and Defender Ammunition said this: "We load to SAAMI specs, not light and not hot." Hmmm....

Thanks.  That is very good news.  The 155gr XTP offers a very good level of penetration, expansion and holds together well when run fast.  As a base, the Hornady factory 155gr XTP's did 1,274 fps in my OEM G29 and 1,338 fps in my OEM G20.

If these hit 1,250fps from my G29 I'll be happy.  ;D

Interesting, I picked up a box of these to test out in my G29, I carry the underwood offering currently. I would like to see a chrono video of these through a G29, 1,274 is impressive but with it listed at 1,265 on the box it seems a little too good to be true.

I bought two boxes and need to send a few in. I think I have the address in my messages.

I'm going to order these too. Anyone chrono them out of a 29?

They are advertised at 1325 from a 5" barrel. Defender emailed me.
