  1. This is not about the 10mm but more about our government. I had an ammo salesman tell me that the gov. is stocking up on 22 longs bullets. Do you have any idea why…they are up to no good. They lie to us and trying to take the 2nd amendment away. Do you think the new world order has any thing to do with trying to take our guns away maybe? Hell if they take the gun only the law breaking people will have a gun. They can just walk in your house and do what ever they want, stealing all your stuff, rape you children and wife or even rape you, please if you can tell me are we in trouble about losing our protection. I would appreciate any feed back you can give. Thank you and Im proud your doing what you do

  2. Since no one is contributing here, let me bring up the #1 topic on my mind right now, and see if any of the new writers can write about it. Bob Campbell wrote a Federal 10mm story a few days ago, but he didn’t open it up for comments.

    I own 2 10mm pistols. I was always confident I was buying pure, strong 10mm ammo because I usually stuck with name brands. Now, slowly I have come to realize that most of it isn’t near full strength. Apparently manufacturers took it upon themselves to water it down, making it similar in FPS to the shorter 40SW caliber.

    Why did manufacturers take it upon themselves to deprive 10mm owners from obtaining the performance they bought the gun for?

    Now I have to buy a shooting chronograph machine, buy a bunch of ammo, and find out who is stepping up to the plate. Hell I even bought
    Buffalo Bore last night. Sure I’ll have fun doing this testing, but still I’m PO’ed at what they have done with 10mm ammo.

    Quick comment about Hornady. Last night I had a box of Critical Duty in my hand. 1050 muzzle FPS!? Hello? I’m suppposed to appreciate this stuff just because you have a fancy brand name, and fancy box, and a little plastic plug in the hollow point? No, I’m not buying it.

    If you trace back in these blogs there’s a historical post where someone convinced me how good Critical Duty was, but that was the past. I have done some research. There’s a couple/few companies going up to 1300-1350 muzzle FPS, and if Hornady wants to print 1050 FPS on their box, hey,,,,,thanks but no thanks!

    My chronograph testing will tell me who the real players are in the 10mm market.

  3. Bill, I lost the notifications about 3 months ago. I had to sign up for some new posts, and keep clicking the notify boxes and the Confirm Follow emails, and things started coming back. I think they had a software glitch at some point many months ago.

    As far as this article goes, let’s see what these new guys bring to the table. I’m into technical/performance aspects of guns and calibers, but I try my hardest to get something from most articles.

  4. I don’t need to win anything, just wish that the Shooter’s Log was like it was up until a few months ago, where you could make a cooment, then see everyone else’s input, and be notified of new comments on the subject, well down the road. I used to get a lot of emails, stating; “New Comment”, but seldom see anything anymore. The format, or manner of doing things seemed to change overnight, and it has been missed. What has happened?
