      10mm Remington UMC 180gr FMJ report

      10mm Remington UMC 180gr FMJ



      I Just got two boxes of this ammo in the mail yesterday. No one in this area carries it for some reason or another..

      Remington seats the 180gr FMJ bullet to a length of 1.248-49”.
      Taking a look inside, we find the case loaded with 7.0grs of propellant.



      The propellant looks like a large grained flattened ball powder.



      Here is another look;



      The bullet weighed out at exactly 180grs..



      Took some of this ammo to the range today.
      Temps were in the high 50’s. Clear sky, and RH at 60%.



      I shot two groups;
      Shot one with the ISMI 22# spring and the other with the factory spring, just to see what difference it made. The factory spring shoots this much better.
      The velocity was a little disappointing.. I was expecting at least something in the low 1100’s..
      In the picture the average velocity is underlined, followed by the extreme spread, Standard Deviation, and temperature.
      Circles are 5½".

      Oh well, there ya have it..

      Both are good groups (even with the oops). If you are looking for full power 10mm loads, there is only a couple manufactures that load them, Buffulo Bore and Cor-Bon. If you reload, 800X or blue dot will give you the velocities of the origanal 10mm.

      Roger that papahawk..
      Yep, I've been giving this G20SF a workout finding out what shoots well.. If you want to check it out;

      Glock 20 10mm - Handgun cartridge reloading - Metallic cartridge reloading - The Handloaders Bench

      I have a magazine full of BuffBore 180JHC for a rainy day.. They do 1255 fps out of my stock barrel.

      Favorite handload is 10.2grs 800-X, starline case, Rem2½ and a Hornady 180gr XTP at 1260fps.

      The Underwood ammo I tried created a lot of smileys in the stock barrel..

      It's amazing how much most 10mm ammo is underpowered.. not just a little.. a lot!
