In order to find out how different self-defense handgun loads perform, we decided to do some ballistics gelatin testing of our own. The chart below is a compilation of expansion and penetration data for Winchester 175 gr Silvertip fired from 10 feet, through four layers of fabric (to simulate clothing), using a Glock 20 pistol.
The photo slider provides a close-up view of the bullets we recovered from the gelatin, and the video shows this load entering the gel in extreme slow motion.
The diagrams at the bottom of the page can give you an idea of how this load compares to other 10mm Auto self-defense loads that we tested.
We did a lot more of this ballistic gelatin testing, including over 100 different loads in a variety of calibers, so check out Lucky Gunner Labs for all the details.

Works well on wild boar
Review by otter
While hunting hogs in Ga. I have killed numerous large and small pigs with this load. My S&W 610 4" loves it and the silvertips even seem to work on rattlesnakes and cotton mouths that invaded the camp.

Shoots well, hits hard, while still being manageable in the gun. Not the hottest, but good SD load.

Excellent defensive and deer hunting round.
Review by Chuck Wagon
This is the round I use in a Colt Delta Elite as my “camp” gun. Not too weak, nor is it “too hot” where it beats up the Colt. (The Delta Elites should NEVER be loaded up with the super “rocket propelled” hot 10mm loading). The 10mm Silvertip is old technology but performs with the top front runners of 10mm defensive loads. It works fantastic on mule deer if you’re into handgun hunting!

Excellent 10mm round.
Review by ARMYFox3ID
As far as a medium load goes, this round is great. This is just above the FBI "lite" load and just below a standard load which firmly places it in the self defense department. Great expansion, great energy dump in a short distance, and very good penetration. Now I will say that on this site it is abit on the middle end of pricing. But other than that, if you are looking for round to use in an EDC 10mm platform this would be it.

Excellent factory 10mm load
Review by rmgunsmith
Even thought the Winchester Silvertip is a old school design, this loading is still offered. Advertised at 1290 FPS with 647 ft lbs energy, it is one potent cartridge. One of the best for the 10mm today.

Still Very Good round
Review by TJ
Silver Tip has been around for a while now, and this 10mm round still is in the upper warm range. Bullet still preforms well as a self defense round with a tested 1170fps and 525 ft lbs out of stock G20
