Admitadly,I have no expierance in this,but I would think that at the 135gr velocities,the bullet would be very explosive. I would be concerned about under penetration. Seems that the 165's to 180's would be better. Them 10's will push a bullet pretty fast.------

Anything by the "savior" of the full-power 10mm cartridge, Mike McNett and his company, Double Tap Ammo (DT).

I currently use and carry in my 10mm's their 165 grain Golden Saber JHP. It's the most accurate load in the DT line out of my S&W 1066 and Dan Wesson PTE-EXP 1911. The stated velocities for that load are 1425 FPS out of a 4.6" barrel.

Until recently i have been using PMC 180 gn Starfire. I got decent accuracy out of my Glock -29 , and i could hit the chest of a standard b-27 sill. at 100yds with this round . I am now experimenting with the 175 gn Win STHP.This one has proven more accurate at more realistic ranges. But i still like to send them way down younder on occasion.

I am going to try the 135s and the 180 XTPs.

Here's the official DT gelatin results. REMEMBER THIS IS FOUR LAYERS DENIM AND TWO LAYERS COTTON. FBI uses only bare gelatin? (could be wrong)

All of these tests were done using 10% ballistic gelatin provided by Vyse gelatin using all FBI protocols and 4 layers of denim and two layers of light cotton T-shirt in front of the gelatin.

DoubleTap 9mm+P
115gr. Gold Dot JHP @ 1415fps - 12.00" / .70"
124gr. Gold Dot JHP @ 1310fps - 13.25" / .70"
147gr. Gold Dot JHP @ 1125fps - 14.00" / .66"

DoubleTap .40 S&W Penetration / expansion
135gr. Nosler JHP @ 1375fps - 12.10" / .72"
155gr Gold Dot JHP @ 1275fps - 13.00" / .76"
165gr Gold Dot JHP @ 1200fps - 14.0" / .70"
180gr Gold Dot JHP @ 1100fps - 14.75" / .68"
200gr XTP @ 1050fps - 17.75" / .59"


DoubleTap .357 Sig
115gr Gold Dot JHP @ 1550fps - 12.25" / .71"
125gr Gold Dot JHP @ 1450fps - 14.5" / .66"
147gr Gold Dot JHP @ 1250fps - 14.75" / .73"

DoubleTap .357 Magnum
125gr. Gold Dot JHP @ 1600fps - 12.75" / .69"
158gr. Gold Dot JHP @ 1400fps - 19.0" .56"

DoubleTap 10mm GLOCK 20 4.6"
135gr JHP @ 1600fps - 11.0" / .70" frag nasty
155gr Gold Dot JHP @ 1475fps - 13.5" / .88"
165gr Gold Dot JHP @ 1400fps - 14.25" / 1.02"
165gr Golden Saber JHP @ 1425fps - 14.75" / .82"
180gr Golden Saber JHP @ 1330fps - 16.0" / .85"
180gr XTP @ 1350fps – 17.25” / .77”
180gr Gold Dot JHP @ 1300fps - 15.25" / .96"
200gr XTP @ 1250fps - 19.5" / .72"
230gr Equalizer @ 1040fps - 11.0" and 17.0" / .62" and .40"

DoubleTap .45ACP
185gr Gold Dot JHP @ 1225fps - 12.75" / .82"
200gr Gold Dot JHP @ 1125fps - 14.25" / .88"
230gr Gold Dot JHP @ 1010fps - 15.25" / .95"

DoubleTap 9X25
115gr Gold Dot JHP @ 1800fps - 10.0" / .64" frag nasty
125gr Gold DOt JHP @ 1725fps - 15.0" / .74"
147gr Gold Dot JHP @ 1550fps - 17.5" / .68"

Also note that the ballistics above are from Glock's full size counterparts, where applicable. G17,20,21 etc

For 10mm, note the velocities in a barrel less than the industry standard of 5". The 200gr XTP DT load beats Hornady's load by almost 250fps with a barrel .4" shorter. Pretty impressive. The 5" numbers with DT are even better. Can't wait to get my Para here so I can start running DT.
