I would definitely keep them. If you'd like to see what 200 grain 10mm ammo is like at 1200 fps, then Underwood has the load for you.

If only $12 spent on it, and if believed that someday in the near future it might hold some collector's value, I'd probably squirrel it away for a rainy day.

Otherwise, fire away.


IMO, despite being "Norma" it's nothing special. Just ordinary FMJ, particularly given plenty of alternatives out there. Other than some chance of future collector's value, I don't see the big deal.

I believe this is the "hot" round the FBI didn't like. Power Factor is 240 from a 5 inch barrel. There is ammo now that duplicates this load. I will probably shoot a few, see how it feels in my Glock 29. They had 2 boxes left, I can always buy another to collect.

that was the box in use in the 70's.....so is the price....look at that, more energy at 100yrd than the muzzle of a 45acp....able to leap tall building with a single bound...more powerful that a locomotive and a 45

LOL - :danceban: It is very "scary" to know I have a handful of these. I have to be careful, if I aim at the moon I could knock a hole in it.

They are interesting in a historical way. I'd keep them with that in mind. I've got a box Black Talons sitting on the shelf just because of the controversy they caused.
