I shot a single 10mm Double Tap 135gr Nosler JHP into wet phone books. It penetrated
11" and laser beamed a 2 to 3" blast crater thru the middle. The photos are of the same bullet shot. You are looking at the ENTRY HOLE!

I did not touch the books after the shot...just shot the photos.

Great photos! That seems to mirror the DT data that has been posted at numerous other sites:

135gr JHP @ 1600fps - 11.0" (penetration)/ .70" (expansion)

Here's all the 10mm DT data:

DoubleTap 10mm (bullet @ velocity - penetration / expansion)
135gr JHP @ 1600fps - 11.0" / .70" frag nasty
155gr Gold Dot JHP @ 1475fps - 13.5" / .88"
165gr Gold Dot JHP @ 1400fps - 14.25" / 1.02"
165gr Golden Saber JHP @ 1425fps - 14.75" / .82"
180gr Golden Saber JHP @ 1330fps - 16.0" / .85"
180gr XTP @ 1350fps – 17.25” / .77”
180gr Gold Dot JHP @ 1300fps - 15.25" / .96"
200gr XTP @ 1250fps - 19.5" / .72"
230gr Equalizer @ 1040fps - 11.0" and 17.0" / .62" and .40"

Here's the reason for the multiple numbers for the Equalizer round at the bottom (From the DoubleTap site):

What about two shots in one?
A 135gr. JHP over a 95gr. lead ball @ 1040fps. This load is VERY accurate and
produces two holes on target. The ball hits high every time - less than one inch
from the JHP @ 10yds and 2.5" from the JHP @ 25yds

Caliber : 10mm

Bullet : 230gr. two projectiles: 135gr. JHP and 95gr. lead ball

Ballistics : 1040fps/ 553 ft./lbs. - Glock 20

I've only been shooting (and reloading) 10mm for a month or so, but it has been a lot of fun. Now if I could only find someplace to shoot where I could terrify my own phonebooks. :)
