    Abby: ...was shot with a 40 caliber smith & wesson, sometimes called the short and weak although I dont know why.

    Gibbs: they like the 10mm autoloader

    They are getting hard to find, which blows. Prices are pretty much standard at $550-600. I want it for a truck gun.
     
  7. Can't they be ordered from Glock? When I bought it, nobody local had it, it had to come from Glock.

    No idea, my local guy said none of his distributors carried them, and my local range said they havent gotten a 29 from Glock in over a year. :dunno:

    There are a few on gunbroker though.
     
  9. Not to start another stupid kB fight, but I've got the Doubletap 135gr. Noslers in it. The cases aren't anywhere near ruptured after firing, though there is a small bulge. I keep it simple and never reload any 10mm.

    You seemed to be up on terminal ballistics on the 5.7, why that load?
     
  17. You get a little more than 12 inches of penetration, and massive fragmentation.

    How much does a box of 50 rounds go for these days in 10mm?

    A few months ago we got 500 for $200ish on Ammoman. Dunno about just a box of 50. :dunno:
     
  20. ~$20 per 50 rounds for Federal FMJ. You can sometimes find stuff a bit cheaper. Needless to say, I don't fire it much.

    The results I see on the web are at 11.0" and you have to remember than handgun fragmentation doesn't really mean the same thing that it does with something like 5.56. With 5.56 the large amount of temporary cavitation combined with the fragmentation can tear a great deal of tissue, you don't get that effect with handgun rounds. More than anything you wind up a lighter projectile that can't penetrate as well anymore. Retained weight is good, fragmentation is bad.

    Its also hard to say to what the actual wound winds up looking like because to my knowledge mcnett doesn't photograph his block. Something like their 180gr gold sabre, or at least the 165gr gold dot would be a choice more consistent with modern terminal ballistics to me though. Fast and light is seldom the winning answer.

    On the up side DocGKR will be testing some doubletap loads in the future, probably not the 10mm ones but at least we'll get a baseline for how accurate mcnett's published results really are.
     
  22. It may well have been 11", it's been a while since I've looked at it. As I shoot through the 135gr. I have, I may replace it with the 165gr. stuff.

    Cool, just thought it was an incongruous choice. I really wish I had the means to do some proper gel tests, I'd like some independent verification of his results, especially with the stuff that he reports at a full inch of expansion.

    Not a heck of a lot spendier than .45ACP, really...

    Damn those images of G20s tempting me to get another extra-large framed Block pistol after disposing of the G21's immense girth.
     
  25. That is true, thankfully I reload .45, so it's waaaay cheaper than 10mm for me.

    You should get a G20 though.
