    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):

    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. :)
