Hoping to court owners of the EAA Witness, Glock 20 and 29 or one of the myriad makes of 10 mm Auto-chambered M1911 pistols, Federal Premium now has a premium load specifically designed for handgun hunting big-game, though it would serve well as a defensive load against aggressive animals, too. Offered in its Vital-Shok line, the load propels a 180-gr. Trophy Bonded jacketed-soft-point projectile-based upon the design of the Trophy Bonded Bear Claw rifle bullet-1275 f.p.s., resulting in 650 ft.-lbs. of energy at the muzzle. This is approaching the downrange performance of the .41 Mag. A heavy jacket bonded to the lead-alloy core results in high weight retention for deep penetration, which is essential for defeating bone and dense muscle in reaching the vital organs of large, tough species. The Trophy Bonded JSP is also preprogrammed to reliably expand to 0.600” to 0.650” in diameter, creating a large wound channel. Lastly, the load features nickel-plated cases for reliable feeding, corrosion resistance and increased visibility in low-light conditions. Do you hunt with your 10 mm Auto-chambered handgun? If so, what load do you use?
