Well, if that brass needs a home...
... aww shoot, don't bother, nobody buys 10mm reloads anyways! (I'll just hold onto the Speer Gold Dots for another day.)

Yes, kind of like the 38 Special/.357 Magnum and the 44 Special/44 Magnum, just a bit longer case and loaded hotter, just like the other combos.
The 10mm Auto uses a large primer, not the SP like the .40, so it's slightly unique in that area; not that this matters to the die sets.
...speaking of which, I need to replace my sizing die, since the carbide insert is cracked on my lone set.
Hodgdon lists a 200 grainer at 1172 fps in the 10mm, fwiw.

At the moment I have only about three boxes with assorted bullets, Nosler JHPs and Sinterfire frangibles, but I don't recall the weights ottomh.
You're welcome to shoot them off with my usual money back guarantee, of course: If they don't function in your firearm, bring them back for a refund.
Once I get some Hodgdon Longshot and some brass, we should see what we can brew up with the 180 and 200 Speers.
I'll bring everything I have in 10mm down to Branford, and there it shall sit, if you what to have a look. (860)961-8931, since I won't be online while there.

Here's the tally:
50 rounds with SF40-155 RHFP (frangibles)
50 rounds mixed (150gr JHP, 165gr, 180gr)
34 rounds Nosler 150gr JHP


I have boxes of Speer FMJ and Gold Dots in 180, 200 and possibly 165 grain weights reacy to be reloaded, too.

Buy with confidence from Gary.

I've shot his ammunition, and it is very, very good. Has that nice tactical-operator-low-glare patina, but his stuff is A-OK by my standards. Much better than factory.

JohnFH would be a good one too, if he loads the .40/10mm. His rifle loads are fantastic, and I wouldn't doubt if his pistol is the same.

I've had ammunition from both of them, and it's all stellar stuff, to say the least. :)

Kind of you to say, GA.
Course, those 10mm guys have to have Polar Bear loads in their 10s; I doubt my book loads equal those!

You and J should give the HRG Revolver shoot a whirl on the 14th of October.

SO what...neither am I. This is what makes you better. I'll bring a few speed-loaders, #10s, for you.
