Need some input on 10mm Hunting loads. I'd like to get a 180gr XTP up to about 1275fps, and 200gr XTP at or close to 1200 as I can. In a stock G20

Do a search here and on Glock Talk for MCNETT. Several excellent threads on exactly what you seek.

I HAVE THE LOAD, BUT YOUR G- WILL NOT HOLD UP TO IT, AS IT IS A REVOLVER LOAD. SORRY. :(

That kind of velocity shouldn't be a problem, Try either Blue Dot ot AA#9. You may also want to contact Wolff about heavier weight recoil springs.

Thanks for the suggestions of reloading sources, but I've been there done that. I was wondering specifically if anyone had worked up any loads in that range for their G20?

I would try the 10mm forum over at www.glocktalk.com

Mike must not be on the forum right now. He posts here and GT.

he's got some really nice 800-X and Blue Dot loads

dunno what you're after, but his stuff will work for about anything. He's got good loads for the G20 for 180 XTP's. Gets into the realm of the 41 mag

I bought 4# of Blue Dot to duplicate what he's developed

Go to the 10-ring forum

9.5gr 800X will keep you within SAAMI specs as well as get you 1225fps from your stock G20. 10.1gr 800X will get you 1280fps from a stock G20 with 180XTP's
1.26" OAL
CCI 350 primers

Also, if you have BD, try 11.2gr BD 200XTP, and 11.8gr BD 180XTP these two combinations have both taken deer to my freezer.
