Reloading 10mm ammo / Re: What is THE hunting bullet for the 10mm?
« on: February 16, 2018, 06:34:52 PM »
Roll your own or commercial loads?

Lots and lots of threads here on this topic.
A quick synopsis would include both the XTP bulletes you mention as well as:
200gr or 220gr WFN hard cast bullets.... With large meplats
155gr Barnes TAC-XP
180gr Trophy Bonded JSP
180gr Gold Dot....  I'm super interested in trying out the 200gr Gold Dot
175gr Critical Duty
200gr Nosler JHP
180gr or 200gr RN TMJ or FMJ
Starting to hear stories about Lehigh Xtreme Penitrator & Defender (mostly loaded bu Underwood)

What’s the back story please.  How long you have it?  Are you origina owner? 
How many rounds through it?

Looking at the pictures in the link; I can't tell what kind of JHP it is...  From the side kinda looks like XTP but not so much when looking down the hollow point (to the right)...

Have experience with the XTP & Nosler on wild hogs and of the two, have a bit more affinity for the XTP.  However, think all three are fine choices.  I wouldn't hesitate to use any one of them on a big tusker if opportunity presented.

LOL, do not use +P 10mm. There is no such thing.

Noticed that very same thing!!

First things first; welcome to the forum Big Bend Brian!  Congratulations on your successful hunt!

As you clearly demonstrated multiple times in the same hunt...  Shot placement, shot placement more important than bullet type.  Most people use the Sig 180gr FMJ for paper punching but you used it successfully to harvest 2 piggies by putting it in the right spots.  The Sig 180gr FMJ did a hell of a job on the shoulder in the pic you shared.  I'd also mention that anytime a wounded hog only goes 25 yards or less after being hit, you've made a fine shot!  I've seen them hit hard in the vitals with high powered rifle rounds and run further than that on multiple occasions, cause they're tough as hell. 
With that said, agree with your move over to the XTP & HCFN bullets, in the long run you'll be happier....

PS...  Thanks for sharing the Megaladon shark teeth.  Makes you shudder to think about the predator sporting those! :o

Noticed the deep penetration for all of the rounds as well.....   Hypothesize it's largely attributable to the "Clear Ballistics Gel"...  It's well documented to permit a bit deeper penetration vs 10% ordinance (porcine) gel.  Seem to recall Underwood backing down those 200gr XTP just a small step from the hairy edge too, and that may be a contributor as well. 

Kentucky Ballistics frequently features 10mm shot into various media.  He definitely doesn't follow established protocols but also doesn't serminize on his conclusions and results. 
Light hearted fun videos from a guy that likes to shoot stuff side by side compare and see what happens.

Reason 1,000,001 to steer clear of Jersey.... :-\

Deepest condolences to our valued and appreciated member from the Garden State.  No disrespect intended. 

10mm Hunting / Re: Hard Cast vs JHP for hogs
« on: January 14, 2018, 06:40:23 AM »
To me: Hog hunting for thrill, exhilaration and invasive pest reduction. 

Hunted them with rifle calibers ranging from 300 win mag to 5.56; pistol calibers from 44 mag to 10mm (used 45acp on one playing possum too) and one dogs & knife hunt. 

They're tough and challenging to put down (where you want that is). Both 10mm JHP (of proper composition, mass & energy) & Hardcast (different but similar standard) will get the job done if you put the round in the right spot. 

Good luck!  Hope you have a blast and hope you have opportunity to try different methods and tools.
Happy hunting!

Almost 300lbs boar...

Underwood 200gr XTP JHP...  25 to 30 yards, 2" below the left ear.  Worked like a charm; drt and a satisfying end to a hellacious fracas.

SPDSR is right....  The NYPD/Carhartt story was fake news.  Not that there is anything wrong with your Carhartt (nice coat) but it'd be potentially fatal mistake to think of it as bullet resistant.

NYPD uses 9mm 124gr +P Gold Dots and they're very effective....  When of course they hit their target.  NYPD's miss ratio is notoriously high....  Which I'm sure has nothing to do with their stupid 12lbs NYPD trigger requirement :-\!

Lehigh Xtreme bullets are certainly not a replacement for JHP.  Their cost alone guarantees that. 
In additionally to normal barrier blind situations, other worthy applications might include:
Significant improvement over FMJ in States that forbid JHP.
General barrier blind category but more specifically: better performance (vs. JHP) against soft body armor (such as Sutherland Springs terrorist was "reported" to wear). 

Some intelligent, experienced and well read people here agree about no value in wound track examination in gel testing... 
Other intelligent, experienced and well read people here may not completely agree.  I think an example of possible value in observing ballistic gel wound tracks can be found when examining non-expanding monolithic bullets that might be prone to tumbling (even out of a handgun) upon impact.  Seen Lehigh Xtreme bullets do it and Fort Scott Munitions are purpose designed to do it.     

Personal G20 is stoked with BB 155gr TAC-XP right this moment, and when hunting utilize Underwood 200gr XTP quite effectively.  Also relied on DT 200gr WFN loads in the same pistol when camping in areas with Brown Bears recently.  However, I still have several boxes in various calibers and various flavors of Underwood Xtreme ammunition...  Because it makes sense to me. 

SPDSR...  If you decide to take up ballistics gel testing utilizing strict FBI protocol, it'd be great.  Too few people are publishing tests anymore.

Kentucky Ballistics has shot a bunch of Underwood (10mm & other) Defender & Hunter ammo tests.

Not the most scientific but decent as he shoots different flavors at same time so you can see how they compare against each other.

Thanks everyone. So what is the general consensus on Underwood/Buffalo Bore versions with 100% stock Glocks? They aren’t gas checked like DT’s.

I've personally only used the 10mm 200gr WFNGC in my Glock...  No issue (feeding or otherwise).

Here are three of the best illustrations of how the Glock does with WFN hard cast ammo:
Hickok 45 published some testing he did with DT 230gr 10mm WFN out of his Glock that continually failed to stabilize & keyholed.

Here is a later Hickok 45 video showing some more DT 230gr still tumbling as well as DT 200gr 10mm out of his Glock that worked great.

He also published some shooting with Underwood/Buffalo Bore 10mm 220gr ammunition out of his Glock20.  Other than one hang up, it worked well.

Yea, there is an underserved market segment!! 
Great business move guys....
