    Question Double Tap 230gr 10mm

    Anyone have load data for 230gr WFNGC for the 10mm. Just bought these last week from double tap, but can't find load data anywhere on the net. Double Tap has posted there ballistic data (listed below). How are they getting this hard hitting load??? Any suggestions???

    -Thanks Josh-

    Caliber : 10mm
    Bullet : 230gr Wide Flat Nose Gas Check Hardcast
    Ballistics : 1120fps/ 641 ft./lbs. - Glock 20
    1008fps / 519 ft lbs 100yds Glock 20
    Glock 29 - 1075fps

    1) Double Tap exaggerates their numbers. Never been able to get their rated speed out of a Glock 20. I've chronographed the Double Tap 200 and 230 several times out of my G20. Both factory barrel and KKM barrel. Out of 5 different lots I've never gotten past 1050 for the 200 and never seen more than 950 out of the 230. This was a couple years ago, can't tell you what the story is today as I stopped buying their stuff.

    2) 3n38 and n105 are the 2 best powders for the 10mm. I've never loaded the 230, just 200 xtp. 10.3 grains of N105 yields 1210 fps. You could back off from this significantly and work your way back up.

    Talking Found this on the web...

    not sure what web-site this came from. It was late and I was just happy that I found what I was looking for. I don't own a Glock, I have a Kimber and EAA witness. I test most of my loads out of the Witness. That pistol is built like a tank, and well Kimbers cost alot of money...

    I've used 800X many times. It needs to be hand weighed as it meters poorly and at these load levels you can't afford that. The 3N38 and N105 meter perfectly and will beat 800X every time.

    I've got a 1911 pattern 10mm as well as a S&W 1006. I've found that the 1911 can't be pushed anywhere near where the Glock or 1006 can. Don't know about the Kimber or Witness. It's just a matter of starting way low, having a chronograph, and working you way up in very small steps. It's a small case and when you are near max the next .1 increment will set you over the top.

    Use 800x in my G20.......suggest a bullet no heavier than 200gr.....the FNGC hardcast and the XTP 200gr.........mid 9 is max for my pistol..........
