10mmm bullet comparison using some typical bullets. Fired in damp sand for the single purpose of gathering consistent expansion data.
This is a fairly brutal media done at 4 feet. Side views and top view are included. 
The cost effective 155 grain Remington JHP has always been my favorite all around bullet for energy, expansion and penetration.
Bullet integrety is also very good for this bullet. If I had to stockpile one all around bullet for the 10, this might be it. 
All loads are max published and fired in a 5" barreled Kimber 1911 using a 22# recoil spring. A stock G20 gives nearly identical results.
The very popular 357 Magnum (4" barrel) and 45 ACP (5" barrel) are thrown in for comparison using safe max published loads.

looks good. I've been using the 155gr xtp with good success on deer.  I'm also pushing about the same velocity as you, just a little shy, I don't load nuclear loads.  Just the loads that give me the best accuracy.

At what range, please?

 

Thank you.

Have been wanting a .44mag S&W for handgun season, but the ten has me curious...

Might try the rem 155's.

Been shooting hornady 155's using WSF powder and get good accuracy out of my razorback.

Get good results with blue dot also.

For practice I like 180 grain Oregon trail cast bullets over 6 grains WSF.

 

For deer the 44mag works well but I like the 454 casull or 45 colt more.

The furtherst range has been 67 yards, laser range finder, but usually right around 23 yards.  The longer range was a deer that was in the front yard when I stepped out of the house, the rest were in the woods.  All deer and wild dogs shot have never gone more than 15 yards, most drop where they stand, that's if I do my jobs at aiming anyway.  I've hunted with my 10mm and 45acp since about 1985, and with the exception of the 67 yard shot I don't push the distance.

I was considering the .45 Colt also, but like they idea of a DA .44 S&W.

 

I know a guy with a Ruger in .45 "long Colt" . I'm gonna have him bring it out so I can shoot it. He has taken a few deer with it.

 

I understand the 454 Casull has a good % more power.

Can you elaborate on why the 45 Colt over the .44 mag?

 

Right now, I would have to use factory loads....

I could probably get most of my meat this way until they figured out it was no longer safe haven...but they would have to change some long held night to bedding location trails....

TaosGlock, thanks for the expanded bullet info!  Would you care to share the load data for the 10mm rounds,  

The velocities of the Power Pistol loads you posted sometime back are shown for the 6" G-20 that match up.

Are you using some different now?

 

Thanks!   :cool:

Good catch Shadow! That was a 6"bbl. used.

I should not rely on my memory!

I will correct the OP later!

One bullet that I missed was the 135 grain the damp sand. I may do that sometime and I will post the results.

Better yet, use my 14" Contender for these bullets.

To Retcop.

I can get the same velocity at lower pressures using a 45.

My 45 Colt Redhawk is very accurate with any load I've tried.

I shoot the rcbs 270 cast bullet over power pistol the most.

Clean burning and low recoil.

The 44mag does work very well.

It's great in a S&W revolver.

I shoot the 250K over unique with it.

Nice work & pics, TaosGlock, but what about my favorite 10mm bullet, the Speer Gold Dot 155 gr?
