This 10mm cartridge features a 180 grain projectile, a popular bullet weight for its caliber owing to its satisfactory balance of recoil and downrange energy. Now, we wouldn’t say that we’d like to get hit by any 10mm bullet. That said, this round’s FMJ isn’t exactly optimized for self-defense. Its gilding metal jacket prohibits terminal expansion, but along with its evenly distributed core it promotes the great accuracy that rewarding target shooting demands. An FMJ provides smooth feeding and promotes slower barrel fouling. This round’s bullet further sports a flat tip, enabling it to carve a clean hole through a sheet of paper for convenient scoring.
When we think of innovative manufacturers, we think of Federal. Did you know it was they who came up with the idea of color coded shotshells? That spirit of innovation runs throughout everything the old Minnesotan powerhouse does, so you can always count on their training rounds to feature state of the art brass shell casings, non-corrosive primers, and clean burning propellant. If you’ve finally gotten a Bren-Ten or other 10mm pistol, then you owe it to yourself to master its operation with this case of ammo!
