Sagebrush, how does your 10mm ammo compare to your 45 acp in penetration and wound channels?

Maybe I missed it.

I don't know about wound channels but it is hard to catch either.

The .45 250 grain +P went through (off the top of my head) about three feet of ballistic gel if I recall correctly.


JWP475 shot them into gel blocks for me a while back. I would have to search for the info. Guys reporting back have been dropping game with both and getting complete penetration.

Like anything, if you place them in the right spot, you get good results. If you don't get them in the right spot, then you can get some unfavorable results. I have seen handgun rounds (from various cartridges) glance off skulls of animals due to guys wanting to take frontal shots on them, versus the ear hole to eye hole path which is what I recommend and use.

Mac, experiences with your .357 170 gr. load?

Not what I'm asking and since I shoot S&W revolvers not applicable to me. What I am asking is about results on game shot with his 170 gr. SWC hardcast .357 Magnum load. I thought perhaps someone has shot a deer, antelope, hog or two with the load and how effective that it was in terminal performance.

Not Mac but they fit my GP100 and are very accurate. I haven’t been able to shoot anything except paper though.

MOGC,

I have had some feed back (all positive) but I cannot remember the animal types. The projectile used in that load is one that Elmer Keith designed prior to the invention of the .357 Magnum. He was using it in various guns, to include the S&W Heavy Duty revolvers. It has been used for a very long time and has a long track record of performance.

Thanks Mac. I'm waiting for a chance to push that through the shoulder of a decent size hog.
I'll let you know the outcome of that. I need to make a commitment to packing a .357 more often. Nowadays I tend to have a 10mm or .45 ACP with me and my .357's and .41 see less woods time. I should fix that I guess.

If the holster is anchored solidly to the bag and the draw side is left open, then it might act like a chest rig.

If the holster is loose and the bag is zipped, you won't be getting that G20 deployed very quickly.

It really is all what you are most comfortable with as far as I am concerned. I often carry a big bore revolver for hunting, but switch to the semi auto for when I am in big critter country and hiking, as I know I can put more rounds on target in a shorter amount of time with the semi.

This is why I utilize the method that I do. I run a pouch on the outside for the handgun, and have added a short bungee with a carabiner that attaches to a belt loop or belt to secure the bottom of the kit bag.

When I am doing things that I need extra retention I can just put the flap over the grip of the handgun.

Then when I am close to civilization/people where I don't want anyone to see the firearm, I can simply put it in the main zippered compartment.
