BUFFALO BORE TACTICAL (low recoil & low flash) 10MM
TACTICAL Low Recoil & Low Flash 10MM Ammo
180 gr. Jacketed Hollow Point - J.H.P. (1,200fps/M.E. 575 ft. lbs.)
20 Round Box
Our full power 10MM ammo is unnecessarily powerful for killing humans. (See items 21A, 21B and 21C) These full power loads were originally designed for outdoor uses such as hunting deer or stopping aggressive bears and these full power loads are wonderful for these types of applications. However, for defense against humans, the excessive recoil and muzzle blast of turbo charged 10MM ammo becomes a disadvantage for fast follow-up shots needed for multiple assailants or armed human targets in general. Too much power/over-kill is not a bad thing, until you have to deal with the unnecessary recoil and muzzle blast/flash, which can put you at a tactical disadvantage.
We’ve designed these new TACTICAL 10MM loads specifically to give every advantage to the user in the event that your 10MM pistol is needed in protecting you or loved ones against human threat. If your main purpose for carrying a 10MM pistol is outdoor usage, we suggest you stick with our full power 10MM (items 21A, 21B and 21C) loads. However, those of you who choose to carry a 10MM pistol for social purposes, would be best advised to carry our TACTICAL loads which are more than powerful enough to quell any human threat, but will offer you more control and faster, more accurate follow-up shots.
These new TACTICAL 10MM loads are as follows:
Item 21D, is the Barnes all copper 155gr. bullet @ 1350 fps
Item 21E, is a 155gr. JHP @ 1350 fps
Item 21F, is a 180gr. JHP @ 1200 fps
Item 21G, is a 180gr. FMJ-FN @ 1200 fps
Item 21H, is a 220gr. hard cast-FN @ 1050 fps.
Let’s discuss proper tactics of ammo choices and gun fights for a moment. If I were to carry a 10MM pistol for social purposes, (killing humans) the round in my chamber and the first one or two up in my magazine would feature expanding bullets as when a confrontation normally starts, your targets will be in the open and generally frontally facing you and with these types of shots, expanding bullets are most lethal, when compared to non-expanding bullets. However, if the human threat is not quelled in the first couple of shots, you’ll likely be shooting at a target that has taken some sort of cover, such as (simple examples) a car door, windshield, stick frame wall, sofa, etc.) If you have to shoot through such cover, you’ll want a good non-expanding flat nosed bullet that will penetrate these items much more reliably than an expanding bullet. So, if the first two or three shots fired do not stop the threat, I prefer to have the remainder of my magazine/cylinder filled with non-expanding flat nosed bullets. This is a tactic that African hunters have been using on dangerous game for many decades……..the first round to be fired is a “soft” (expanding bullet) and all follow-up shots are “solids” (non-expanding bullets) for game that, if it still needs killing, now has to be shot at going away or other tough angles where very deep penetration is needed.
Our TACTICAL 10MM loads are still much more powerful than 40 S&W ammo, but are less powerful than our full power 10MM loads and hence are much better in dealing with human threats.
When carrying a 10MM for social purposes, I carry two rounds of item 21F up first, followed by the remainder of the magazine being stuffed with item 21G. Over ten years ago, I developed items 21F and 21G for my personal use. They did not have an item # then………..they were designed only for my personal use and I was carrying a Colt Delta Elite for normal social carry, but grew concerned about being slow on my follow-up shots with our full power 10MM ammo. Hence, I designed these TACTICAL 10MM loads for my own use and am now offering them to the public for the same very good reason I carried them many years ago.
Three of these loads are expanding loads; Items 21D, 21E and 21F are designed to expand at our impact velocities on living mammalian tissues.
Two of these loads are non-expanding; Items 21G and 21H are designed to penetrate deeply and straight-line in living mammalian tissues. Item 21H utilizes the same hard cast, flat nosed bullet as our famed item 21C “Outdoorsman” load, but at 150 fps less velocity.
All of these loads utilize low-flash powders. This is an advantage should you be required to drop the hammer in low light, which is when most human predators are out and about.
As per below, you’ll note the use of real world firearms in determining our advertised velocities. We believe the industry wide duplicitous practice of using long test barrels to determine velocities is misleading and non-useful to the shooting public.
