    Where do you get yours?
    What is it (brand weight velocity)?
    How much does it cost?
    I gotta find a good source to give to my ffl.

    I like 155 gr for factory loads.

    My handloads are all 135 grain at absolute maX.

    IMHO, the 10MM just doesn't have the powder capacity for bullets over 155 grains. you lost too much velocity.

    Thanks for the links. Last box of ppu's (exact same) cost me $24 and I had to go to nh to find ammo yesterday and I paid a discounted price of $30 for Remington umc's.
    I'd love to know what these rounds are traveling at. I know my 155 hp are just over 1200 fps.

    No idea how fast these are, many factory 10MM rounds have been watered down to anemic levels.

    My 180gr Handloads are traveling at 1250+ fps out of a 1911 Comander with a 4.25 inch barrel.

    I don't know. I have always reloaded mine. Maybe you would like to start really saving some money?

    Noylj reloading is on my list of future investments. Unfortunately I know getting components in my state can be difficult.

    Dan you might want to work on finding a good local place ;)

    Thanks guys

    Cheaper Than Dirt has a pretty good selection of 10mm. I have found that Cheaper Than Dirt has great prices if you buy bulk. Their shipping is very high so you have to buy a lot of ammo to mitigate the high shipping cost. I buy all my .38 Special, .357 Mag and 9mm from them but always order a minimum of 3,000 rounds. Once you get above 3,000 rounds you can usually buy your ammo cheaper there than even at Walmart. Not to mention the obvious, can you ever have such a thing as "Too much ammo"?

    Thanks Kelly. No mail order to massachusetts unfortunately. My state sucks. Can't even have a non-firing firearm replica mailed here.
