blinded by the light
Little doubt it's good ammo for hog or whitetail hunt where legal, or range or daylight carry. And as another reviewer also said it creates an impressive flash. It's very cool but unless you're at bad breath self-defense distance from an imminent threat in dark conditions your momentary blindness will probably be as bad or worse than whatever you're trying to stop. Not ideal when followup shots may be necessary. The 10mil has very good stopping power. And this particular load by all descriptions is no slouch. Still it is not a guaranteed one-shot-stop. Unless you tend to close your eyes momentarily as you're shooting (not recommended) these are sub-par if there's any possibility of deep dark woods or dark alley defensive scenarios.
I did very much like shooting it at the range. Again, the flash is impressive. Cool.
This is the same round used in one of the very first defensive shootings with 10mm, back in the early 1990s.
An emotionally disturbed person went to a gun store in rural Oregon, brandishing a cheap cast potmetal .380 and announced his intent to kill everyone and loot the place. The staff--all armed--and a local sheriff's deputy who was also present thought he was joking until he put in earplugs and began pointing the gun at store staff a few feet away.
At that point the bad guy was engaged at powder-burn distance with one round of Remington 147gr JHP from a Glock 17 by the deputy, which hit him in the upper arm and passed through without striking bone or any large blood vessels. One of the guys behind the counter--a combat veteran and avid IPSC competitor--drew a stainless Colt Delta Elite loaded with this ammunition, PMC 170gr JHP, and hit the robber three times center mass so fast that witnesses reported it sounded like a burst from a submachinegun. Bad guy fell down like a puppet with its strings cut and was assuming room temperature when the paramedics arrived.
At autopsy two perfectly expanded 10mm 170gr bullets were recovered, both perfectly expanded, one just under the skin on the back side of the bad guy's torso and one in his clothing on the back side. Bad guy had two very large exit wounds on his back that the coroner described as ragged in character, indicating that they had been made by expanding bullets. Soft tissue damage was significant. Third bullet was not recovered, which is mysterious because the bad guy had his back to the entrance, directly in line on the opposite side of him from the man with the Colt, a large glass door, and the door was not struck by a bullet or otherwise damaged.
This is not quite a full-power load in 10mm--not by Underwood, Buffalo Bore, Double Tap, etc. standards, anyway--but it has a lot more juice than any .40 load I know of and more than did the job in the hands of a skilled user who was able to get the hits when he needed to. It may not have had a bonded jacket, or a jacket that formed into sharp claws upon expansion, but it did all you could reasonably expect a handgun cartridge to do for purposes of self-defense.
