    Ran across this article and thought some folks might like to read it. It's long, but the information is good and useful for those wishing to reload or just wondering what all the fuss is about with this round.

    dated but relevant. The charts and load data can be used to compare many of the current manufacturers claims and performance. Also, it's a great reference for those that reload this cartridge.

    I love loading and shooting the 10mm, from 1991.

    I thought the 10mm started back with the Manhattan project. :grin:

    Buffalo Bore was making ammo for a few years then, but didn't get in the mix. Now Proload sells Baers and doesn't produce ammo.

    It's my favorite pistol caliber.

    Swamp Fox is by far the best i've had. Can't get anymore though. I have 500 rds. on fmj from a company in AZ that claims 1375fps with 180 grain. should be fun.
