Saw this in the G-Spot the other day and the 4.5” one they had was beefier than the other XDM’s (.45, 9mm, .40) I’ve shot & held, so it should be an interesting addition to the 10mm squad. You should REALLY try out the Rock Island Ultra FS HC if you ever ge5 a chance. It’s a nice solid 1911, and shooting roided out full house 10mm is so, so nice!
What 10mm ammo is preferred for HD or the woods? Ideally near the original loading of Norma. That means 200 gr at 1150+ or 180 gr at 1200+. Apart from the usual Buffalo Bore and Underwood Ammo (which are rarely available - if at all - where I live), I want to know what brand to look for that isn't just a strong 40 S&W (or else I'll just grab a 40).
Hmmm I’m not too sure what brands you have access to, but some commonplace stuff would be Hornady 175gr Critical Defense, Federal 180gr Trophy Bonded, and Parabellum Research (PBR) 200gr Hornady XTP (1,250/fps). Those are some off the top of my head, and I peeked at my 10mm stash 😅
I usually find most of the major brands like Federal, Remington, Winchester, Sig and Hornady. Doesn't stop them from being amusingly expensive (again, the price of making firearms a heavily regulated industry). A month ago I bought some Sig V-Crown JHP 230 gr 45 ACP at $3 per cartridge. HSTs are nearly $5 a pop. Really hard to test them enough to be assured of cycling.
There are some cheaper brands though. PMC and Magtech for instance. Not all of them are good - but at least the Magtech 230 gr 45s do decently in most ballistic tests.
shotokan: The wife thinks i'm nuts for buying a case of pool noodles every other week. lol

shotokan: I'm willing to try anything. Don't get me wrong, pool noodles are fine but I am tired of cutting them honestly.

The Levin Lance: All jokes aside, I think you will like the beach mats better than the pool noodles at least.

shotokan: I'm not sure but the number of and size of the holes was just mind boggling.

The Levin Lance: Maybe with the shotgun situation it was birdshot?
Jan 24, 2022 18:15:57 GMT
shotokan: Oh yeh, typically if they come with rifle wounds it's from an ak47... we did have a lady come in several years ago with multiple point blank shotgun injuries. Still don't know how she survived.
Jan 24, 2022 17:59:08 GMT
The Levin Lance: Anything particularly nasty? Rifle rounds and such?
Jan 24, 2022 17:38:48 GMT
shotokan: lol not yet... tons of GSW's but no sword injuries.
Jan 24, 2022 17:35:34 GMT
The Levin Lance: Seen anything close to a sword wound in the ER?
Jan 24, 2022 17:20:50 GMT
shotokan: Good morning Ouroboros, how goes your day thus far?
