SD203, perhaps you could mail me two of those rounds for evaluations and documentations to add to our pull-downs.  This would give us an idea of what they are loading as sold to the public.  If you are interested in sending me some of those rounds PM me for instructions and address info.  BTW they can be those that failed to ignite from the light strikes.

We could all learn for these documentations.  8)

Never heard of that outfit before. It would be interesting to see how they put them together and with what!

No experience with their 10mm rounds but have shot a box ot two of their 9mm ammunition without issue.  The Chopping Block (aka Raggedyman) and Buffman have both published videos featuring Velocity Tactics barrier penetration abilities. 
Hate to learn about OP's bad experience.

Howdy Everyone,

We have noticed the concerns on this post about the reliability of our 10mm ammunition. So we retested our product, and made a raw, un-sugarcoated, video that contains all the footage we shot. As far a quality we have SWAT teams and Sheriff departments all over the country switching to our ammo.
In the near future we will be posting the videos of some of the tests we do here on a regular basis. The opportunity to examine your firearm is still on the table. User SD203 was very polite and honest on the phone, we appreciate that.
If anyone has any more troubles with our ammunition, please do not hesitate to call us at (877) 526-1903.

Here is our results on our test.


Fixed the link so the video will work:

Recoil Spring getting hot too may be the issue with the stovepipes and or failures to extract as the slide over runs and or pulling off the extractor.  Nice video, wish I was there to pick up the brass...LOL

I wonder if these Fort Scott used were loaded with the Alliant Powder Power Pistol 13 grains @ 1611 fps

FortScottMunitions,

I had the opportunity to shoot your ammo with user SD203 when the ammo shown in the video exhibited multiple light primer strikes in his Glock 29. My suspicion is that you had received a bad batch of primers from your source.

Your 10mm ammo is loaded on the hot side, which we like. I did notice excessive muzzle flash from the G29, and even noticed some muzzle flash in your video with the G20. My personal suggestion would be to look into some low flash powders.

The failures to extract in your video were probably caused by the shooter not achieving a firm enough wrist lock while firing. I noticed two of the FTE's occurred with the same shooter. Shooting the relatively light G20 with hot ammo necessitates a firm wrist lock. You guys were shooting powerful ammo at a fast rate of fire, which no doubt caused shooter fatigue. I don't blame your ammo for this nor do I blame the Glock. As a side note, we did not have any failures to feed or extract in the Glock 29 that I can recall. And we did not fire your ammo in my Glock 20 as SD203 wanted to concentrate on shooting it through his G29.

Thank you for posting this video. It is a testament to your ammo as well as Glock that ammo of this power level could be fired as quickly as it was with this amount of success. I think perhaps with a few tweaks of the powder and perhaps s check on your primer source you will have put out an excellent product.

I wish you the best.
