Default Anyone try 155 grain Barnes in 10mm

I bought a box for my Glock 40 MOS. Advertised velocity isnít too impressive but I donít know what length barrel they supposedly use.

I have not tried any Barnes 10mm bullets. I have owned two 10mms, and shot a few others. So far the guns I have shot, only like the 180 gr. and 200 gr. bullets. What I mean by the guns did not like them, is the accuracy, was noticeably worse than any 180 gr. or 200 gr. bullets I shot, through any of the 10mms I have shot.

I at one time bought a bunch of 155 gr. bullets, I was trying to get my 10mm, to make great big holes in whatever I shot with it. So I loaded some up, I got crappy accuracy, tried different loads, then other loads, it did not matter what powder I used, the accuracy was not worth a crap. I don't remember if I ever shot any 155 gr. bullets out of a Glock 20. I know I have shot both 180 gr. and 200 gr. out of Glocks, but that was a long time ago, when I did that.

So my info, is not going to be dead on accurate info for your situation, but just what I have found with other 10mms and other 155 gr. bullets.

I recently picked up a Glock 29 to carry in a chest holster while in Grizzly country up here. I have not even shot it yet because I have not found any ammo. Yesterday, I stopped into my local sporting goods store and the manager handed me a box of 20, Grizzly Cartridge brand ammo in 150 gr JHP. I will use these for personal defense but they are too light and the wrong bullet design for bear defense.

I had not shot these before so I looked them up on the internet and gave the owner a call. I told him what I bought the pistol for and he recommended their 200 or 220 gr WFNGC ammo for use when in bear country. He told me about the shortages of components and said they would not be loading these for probably 2 months. I will definitely give them a try when they are available. They would be on par with Underwood or Buffalo Bore.

Thanks for the heads up. I may try to buy one or two boxes from them also.

I load the 155 gn xtp for my Glock-29. I hand load it, as I couldnít find a factory load that was accurate enough.

I havenít kilt no grizzlies but I have dropped a lot of hogs with it , chunkiest one was 265. I get some funny looks sometimes when I say Iím handgun hunting and I pull it out.
