Administrative Note: The information above comes from the manufacturer and is only informational. The actual ballistics obtained with your firearm can vary considerably from the advertised ballistics.

Also, ballistics can vary from lot to lot with the same brand and type load. When manufacturer ballistic data was unavailable, ballistics were calculated using a ballistics calculator.

10mm Ballistics Trajectory Chart

Below, you’ll find a sample 10mm bullet drop chart that gives you a general idea of what the 10mm trajectory looks like.

10mm Auto Trajectory Chart

Note: The chart above is an example of one 10mm load, and actual ballistic performance may vary depending on bullet weight, lot, barrel length, and environmental conditions while shooting.

10mm Velocity (FPS)

The 10mm Auto has a wide range of velocities measured in feet per second (FPS), depending on the manufacturer, bullet weight, and load you purchase.

For example the Black Hills 10mm Auto Honey Badger 115-grain bullet has a muzzle velocity of 1,600 fps while the Aguila 10mm Auto 180-grain fmj bullet has a muzzle velocity of 1,200 fps.

Underwood Ammo produces a 10mm Auto 100-grain Xtreme Defender with a muzzle velocity of 1,825 fps; however, most rounds have a velocity in the 1,200 fps to 1,500 fps range.

It should be noted that handloads will give you the most consistent results if you’re willing to put the time into reloading and handloading ammo.

10mm Muzzle Energy

Some semi-automatic pistol shooters use muzzle energy to help determine the knockdown power of a round. The 10mm Auto cartridge was created because the 9mm lacked the stopping power the FBI and other law enforcement agencies in the USA were looking for in a handgun cartridge.

Muzzle energy is measured in foot-pounds (ft-lbs of energy). Even though I believe stopping power is an over-analyzed metric, it’s important to understand these specs for self-defense because they allow us to choose the best ammo for our specific situation, whether that’s home defense or concealed carry.

The Black Hills 10mm Auto Honey Badger 115-grain has a muzzle energy of 654 ft-lbs compared to the Aguila 10mm Auto 180-grain FMJ which has a muzzle energy of 576 ft-lbs. However, at longer ranges heavier bullets maintain higher muzzle energy.

The Underwood 10mm Auto 100-grain Xtreme Defender defense round still has a high muzzle energy (740 ft-lbs), even though it’s a lightweight bullet. This is due in part to traveling at such high speeds.

Sell much?

So are you saying the underwood gets the nod from you @ammodotcom "ammodot man "

Yessir, 2,400 fps out of a 5" barrel. It’s got a super light copper bullet that bursts apart right after impact. Pretty potent stuff. We don’t sell too terribly much of it, if only because Liberty Ammunition isn’t one of the larger manufacturers. We don’t have any in stock at the moment. I think Liberty does, though.

Underwood rocks and I confidently recommend anything they make. I wish they’d load rimfire too.

    • 8 to 17% less felt recoil
    • 106 to 133% more velocity
    • 45 to 84% more kinetic energy

I may need to get some of this

I will second that. It is all we carry, since we don’t carry handloads.
