    Montana Gold sucks...SUCKS...as far as using their .40 caliber offering pushed to full power 10mm loads in regards to the bullet holding together.

    That said...complete bullet failure everytime, but this ammo penetrated the deepest of all 10mm ammo fired.

    ahahhahahahahaha..............not the first I heard that. Oh well I'm just using them for plinking anyway. THANKS!

    Still if an attacker got shot with that at 1600 fps, he might go "ouch".

    Just a quick note: At least in rifle rounds, Fackler thought fragmentation was a good thing: http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/6694223

    Provided there is adequate penetration, fragmentation generally increases wound volume.

    I have a Glock 29 SF - added grip extenders to the two mags, tru-glo sights, Lone Wolf extended, ported barrel. Replaced the Slide Release and Slide Locks with aftermarket parts.

    Very pleased with this gun - Intended use is open carry, or back up gun for hunting.
    Can use the Glock 20 mags. Its kinda nice being able to carry so much firepower in such a compact package.

    Montana Gold is not and has never been a SD bullet. They (Just ask them) are a target shooting only bullet. Why the JHP? Well many many competitive shooters feel the JHP's are more accurate then FMJ's.

    There are a lot of bullets that look like SD bullets but, are not. So be sure to check info on them if that is your intended use.

    Testing bullets is tedious and very time consuming, thank you for sharing your results. Never thought of using copy paper. :)

    In a pinch 2 reams of copier paper duct taped together would make for a poor man's body armor. :D

    How do you guys feel about Precision Delta's ammunition offerings?

    Were the tested gold dots of the bonded variety?

    It's in the same category as Montana Gold. It's target ammo.

    I have loaded and number of 124g JHP's from Precision Delta and they are accurate but, not meant as a SD bullet.

    Yes anything can be used as a SD bullet but, intended purpose is key IMO.

    A good target/hunting/SD for the cost is Nosler Sporting JHP's. They seem to hold good weight and expand well.

    I have a 1006 and 2 EAA Witness pistols in 10mm. I can say that I love all of them. I have shot over 1000 rounds in both of the EAA pistols and they still look and work like new. The one thing I did was to install a 20# Wolf spring in each of them. That was to slow down the slide and so I did not have to look 30 to 40 feet from the firing line to find my brass. They are tack drivers.

    Panzercat - I have the RIA 10mm and it is fantastic. Shoots very well, the construction is very good, and I like that it has a bull barrel instead of dealing with the bushing.

    The trigger is not particularly spectacular, but that's an easy fix! Really nice to have the LPA rear sight as well, and RIA uses Novak cuts, so if you want to swap anything out it's easy.

    Shot side-by-side with a 1911 in .45, you can definitely feel the difference. I hesitate to say I like the 10mm a little better... :)
