Anyone run 200grn hardcast for Hogs through their 10mm

I am headed to Tennessee for a hog hunt in a few months. Not sure which round to use for my Kimber Custom Target II 10mm. Any suggestions based off experience would be greatly appreciated.

Welcome to the forum ozman815, sorry I don't have a 10mm so I can't offer any suggestions.

How about stopping by our "New Member Introduction" sub forum and introducing yourself to the membership?

Welcome to the forum from Northern Illinois. I don’t have a 10mm but have a friend that used Golden Saber in a 45 Super long-slide that worked well.

I still have my casting blocks for the 10mm. When the Bren Ten came out, there wasn't ammunition anywhere.

The blocks cast the same profile as the original Norma 200 grain round, and they weigh out the same.

I did have to use some solder to get them "stiff" enough.

When I first got my Colt Delta Elite back in the '80's I was running hard cast 200 gr LSWC bullets over a healthy dose of Blue Dot. Loaded Laser Cast bullets from Oregon Trail. Near max load but very accurate out of my Colt.

Welcome.

Underwood 200 did very well for me.Pass thru if standing sideways.No problem taking shots on rear of animal.Let me clarify.Lined up properly.Rear facing you.Head directly in line.Its my go to on hogs.
My other 10 will not cycle 220.200 hard cast is fine.Good luck.

Groo here
I have a "few" 10mm... [even a revolver]
I would suggest a "Hard Cast" boolet of 180 to 200 gr..
or an FMJ [real one not coated] at 180gr.
I am not a fan of heaver than about 210 gr in the 10mm as speeds will be a little slow.
The old Keith loading for the 44 spec is a good example.
245 gr long nose at 1100 to 1200 fps.
For the 10mm , a 200 to 210 Cast boolet with a flat on the nose
of about 64% to 70% of diam and a S.D. of about .180 to .188.[see mountain molds for specs]
Speed of 1100 to 1200.
As Keith put a 44 through a deer sideways at about 600 yds,,,
I doubt you would need more.
