I guess you could put a hammer spring in. I put the flat bottom firing pin retaining block in with an increased weight spring in all of my EAA pistols. The Hunter really only needs the 20lb spring to start blasting away. The Hunter tames all the 10mm loads like a pussycat!

  I really need to stay out of this thread  :o  Seeing these nice metal pistols with fancy grip panels makes my eyes twitch  ;D  Gotta stay strong until after Shot Show  :(

I got mine out and it ran like a champ with the new 20 lb recoil spring. Can't wait to hit the range again this week with it and the little SP-01 Compact.
 :D Ahh, another who has this problem too. Pretty steel pistols with beautiful grips lure me in too.

Would a compensator be necessary to keep the gun from getting destroyed if 10mm could be loaded up to 65,000 psi? Our would that require a specially built pistol? Those pressure are up with 460 S&W Magnum

Those look awesome!

I played too hard as a kid and fractured a vertebrae when I was around 13. Stayed fit and things were fine until it suddenly went bad when I was 19. The disc dried up on one side and started bulging into my nerves on the other. Just before my 20th birthday I got a spinal fusion on my L3 and L4. Around 4 years ago things started hurting really bad and wouldn't calm down. After 4 months of heavy pain meds and muscle relaxants nothing was working and I was desperate. So I started trying Yoga and the few stretches I tried helped. I ordered a back yoga DVD. Within several days of doing it I was getting relief. It was cheesy and boring, but the results were there. I do that and try to at least do work outs for all my shoulder, back, lats, chest, and core. I'm not a body builder, just keeping things strong enough that I don't fall into the pain again. Anyways, here's the DVD I use. I try and share my story with others with back pain so they can avoid surgeries.

I recently emailed KKM. You can order one through them. Send them an email. He said there's a wait time, but I didn't pursue so I don't know how long it was.

Well the good news is the Witness Hunter comes horrendously under sprung, so I have light recoil springs. Other good news is I have faster powder for 9mm. Other than that... I'm just hoping for better luck with these things than you had Trapper6L. I order the premium mix and there was not mention of it including frangible bullets. If they're a total waste I may call American Reloading but cause they're a good portion of my order.

Tombstone Tactical has a few 600646 SA0 in stock.  !5 this morning, 9 when I ordered and now 8 left.

I can't seem to find it on their site. Would you mind sharing a link? Thanks!

Loaded up 29 of the 180 gr FMJ's last night. 1.26 OAL over 9.5 gr of Longshot. Tonight I'll do a few sets working up to 9.8 gr as my actual work up to see if I get any pressure signs. I know I am max for the load data of Longshot, but it was a ways under max pressure. I have read a mix of posts about Longshot, so I'll just work up carefully and see where the actual limits are with my load.

The real fun will be with the frangible bullets. I may start a thread asking if anyone on here has any experience with these bad boys in 10mm.

Make sure to use enough crimp on those 0.355s.  :))
Ha, no kidding.

When they say 'mixed bag', they mean mixed bag...  Thanks for the heads up

Yeah, I ordered the mix that seemed to be better and would have better bullets. The next time I will wait for the mix of TMJ or something more specific.

I order 2 bags of 500 mixed 10mm bullets from American Reloading. Total cost was $68 so I figured to give it a try.

I didn't count each type of bullet, it was taking enough time sorting them by weight and type. But here's a picture of the bullets I got, sorted most to least left to right.
1) 180 gr HP
2) 155 gr FN Leatherhead coated
3) 115 gr frangible
4) 180 gr FMJ
5) 124 gr RNFP frangible
6) 155 gr FMJ
7) 146 gr FP FMJ 0.355 diameter

If Henning says they're comparable then why not?

If only they made it for 10mm auto magnum so we could shoot bot cartridges. That would be amazing!

I see Polycoat is the only option now. Is it kind of dull and how does it hold up compared to other finishes?

Yeah, it's more of a matte finish rather than a glossy finish. Mine are holding up well. I haven't had a cerekoted pistol so I can't compare it fairly. But at least from what I hear they are similar.

I have ordered their mixed HST pulls before.  They ranged from 155-180 grain.  I posted the relative amounts I got.  I wanna say it was about 10% 155, 25% 165 and the rest 180.

I would guess this will be a mix of HP and FMJ in weights from 155-180.  But, for cheap heads for practice ammo, just sort them by size and shoot them up.

I got a separate taper crimp die and it seemed to work well on the last of my coated bullets. For the price of this mixed batch I figured I might as well get them, so I ordered some of these. It will be a while before I have space to make my own coated bullets and in the mean time I am willing to give these a try for the great price. Thanks for the recommendation!
