    Thanks for the data! I didn't know you could use Enforcer in the the 10 mm I guess I just haven't seen any data on it before.
    I load and shoot a lot of 10 mm!

    As far as I know there's no book data.

    Based on a respected loaders findings I decided to model it up in QL and try it - As thought, it works, but it's just too slow.

    I'm a big fan of longshot in the 10mm.

    The one powder I haven't been able to get my hands on!

    For 175gr & up I've had good results with Long shot, #7, & 800X.

    Lighter weight bullets... Well, everything :)

    I only happened to have a good stash when the shortage came about because I was loading a bunch of 12ga with it.....glad I had it

    I like #7, haven't used 800x.
    Like #9 and power pistol as well , but Blue Dot is my all time favorite for 10

    Good #s with Power Pistol 155gr & lighter. I don't load anything heavier than 180, and in that weight I can't get #9 to do what #7 does.

    Great, now I need to get some 200/220s to load :)

    So I have not shot the powder coated bullets yet. I bought 500 coated lead from Graf's and plan to start loading them soon.

    It looks like you are sending them full go ?

    Yep :)

    147gr 401-145s at 1,500+

    Of course that's my gun, my barrel, and the coating product I'm using.

    YMMV.

    Was down to 1/2lb, so today's purchase adds a little buffer :)

    The next step is accuracy, just need to replace the stock sights.

    What a great write up. I really appreciate all the data. I am not new to reloading but I am new to 10mm with the recent purchase of my Glock model 40 long-slide 10mm. I knew I wanted to to shoot 180 grain bullets around 1200 fps and powder has been pretty dry around here but I found some Accurate No. 7 powder and have loaded up some test rounds that shot great.

    So let me run this by you, Im running the glock 40 (6 inch factory barrel) and the load that im using is straight out of my Speer Manual (edition 14). Min/Max charge 11.0 gr - 12.0 gr, Stated velocity (5 in test barrel) Min/Max 1065-1180. COAL for these rounds with the rainier plated HP is 1.250 in.

    I conservatively started in the middle at 11.5 gr and they feed and function beautifully without any signs of over-pressure. They also feel considerably snappier than the box of american eagle 180 grain FMJs I sent through it when I first bought the handgun.


    (This is an entry in your data:)

    Name: 10mm 180 Plated 11.0gr #7

    Your data shows the max velocity of my data with my datas starting charge!. I knew I would be getting better velocities with my longer barrel but this makes me wonder what Im actually getting for velocity since I loaded at 11.5 grain. I also loaded a small batch of 10 up to the max of 12 grain to see if they feed/function/or show over pressure signs.

    Sorry for the long winded write up but its facinating to me that your data shows velocities far greater than mine. Any input or guidance you may have will as always be greatly appricated! Thanks again.
