    Sorry I don’t reload 10mm, but I do like Powder Pistol in 40S&W. It should work well with heavy bullets in 10mm.

    Thanks Magnum Shooter that's the kind of info I am after. Hopefully, I can get some detailed loads that work for others.

    Power Pistol is a great powder for the 10mm. There are powders that will provide higher velocities in 10mm especially with heavier bullets but PP works great with 165 and 180gn bullets out of my Glock. Plus it's a versatile powder. I use it in 357sig and mag. 44 mag and 45 colt also. You'll be happy with it.

    I have used Power Pistol in my 10mm Glock 29.
    Im using 165 Gr Speer GD with it and I can tell you that they are pretty good.
    I had it chronoed as well. Out of 10 rounds, I calculated 502 Lbs of energy at 9.2 Gr.

    The avg velocity was 1172 from around 7 yards

    I loaded some 180 grain loads a few years ago with Power Pistol. It shot well, but what I remember is that recoil was pretty hefty, but tolerable. If you are inclined to load your 10mm on the warm side, especially with the heavier slugs, you should consider going to the Wolf main springs. They will tolerate the heavier recoil produced by warm loads using Power Pistol, Blue Dot, AA-9, etc. The Wolf spring will save your Glock from internal chafing of metal parts. Hope this is helpful.:)

    I've been reloading for many handgun calibers for over 20 years but just started loading 10mm. I worked up to 7.8gr Power Pistol with 180 grain plated (Rainers) and they shot great. I bumped up to 8gr PP (most resources say it's a max load or even slightly over depending on the resource) and they begain to "pattern" instead of group.
    Shooting out of a S&W 1006 with 22lb Wolf recoil spring.

    10.5 gr of PP under a 180 gr. XTP-Hp produced an average 1109 fps from my G29SF. This is a stout load, but showed no evidence of over pressure. Power Pistol is a very good higher velocity load powder and extremely versatile. I have used with relatively good success in 9mm, 10mm, 45acp and 38 spc., and .357 mag.
