    Anybody have a favorite safe, mid-range powered load for 10mm? I shoot a Glock 20c if that matters.

    Thanks!

    Starline cases, 11gr Blue dot (Max is 12gr per Speer #12), 155gr GDHP, Win Lg PP, COAL 1.25 (fairly warm)

    Starline cases, 15gr AA#9 (Max is 15.9 per Lee 2nd ed.), 155gr GDHP, Win LG PP, COAL 1.26 (Real Warm, approaching hot load.)

    I do use an aftermarket BBL to keep any smilies from showing. If you are using a stock barrel, reduce .5gr and work up to make sure your are not getting too much case head expansion. My max head expansion is .4025, Stock unfired cases go around .4022

    There are others on here that know way more than me, I just started the 10mm bug about 2 months ago. Reloading for several years, but mostly rifle and 357Sig.

    I forgot to add, you will find a bunch of loads on other sites that are beyond maximum loads for the 10mm. You chance alot, and gain little from using those.

    I also wanted to add that the above loads show no extreme pressure signs in my pistol. The primers look flat but safe.
    If any info is incorrect, please excuse. I am at work and recalling from memory.

    Mid-range loads of AA5 in my G20. I use 180 gr Gold Dots 'cause I got a bunch for cheap years ago. With moderate loads and Starline brass I get zero bulge.

    After a little research and purchasing the Complete Reloading Manual for 10mm/40 cal -

    180 Gr Siera JHP
    Titegroup powder : looks like you can use between 5.4 and 6 gr
    AA No 7: Around 10 gr - 10.5 for similar fps.

    I've read No 7 works great for 10mm, but would looks like it takes roughly twice as much. Would I be better off getting the Titegroup in that I can load more rounds with say 1 lb of powder?


    I don't think it matters, just looking for some opinions from some of the more experienced reloaders.
