I got drawn for a javalina hunt next month. I am going to use my Fusion 10MM hunter longslide. I am going to load up some Sierra 180 Gr. hollow points and was wondering what you guys thought was the best powder to seat the bullet over. I am looking for a full power load. Thanks in advance, Mirando

I like AA #9 a lot for 10mm, IMR 800x is supposed to be an excellent powder for 10 also but I have not used it. If I were to use anything other than #9 it would be 800x. In my opinion these are the best 2 for 10.

Thanks Jerry. I have been using TiteGroup but was thinking there may be a better choice. I have some AA#9 laying around in my loading room so I will give it a shot, Mirando

I would also add ACC No 7 to No 9, both work well for me with heavy bullets.:shades:

I use 7 also for .45 mainly and some target 10mm if I'm too lazy to change the powder and it's just fine. I like 9 though for just loading 10 and hunting type rounds. But I agree its good powder, specially if you want something for both .45 and 10.

I tried IMR 800x for 10mm and didn't like it that much. Power Pistol is my favorite, really packs a punch.

With 6" barrel, 10.1grs/800X/175gr Silvertips chronographed 1400fps from a G20. Win brass, WLP.

180gr/AA #7 with give the same MV as AA #9 with about 3.0grs less powder for faster follow-up shots. Both powders will push 180gr/JHPs in the 1375fps range from chrono data.

AA #7/11.7grs/Win brass/CCI 300/180gr Win JHP notched;
1355fps/734fpe, ES 32fps, SD 12fps.

#2 6" barrel;
AA #7/11.4grs/Starline brass/WLP/180gr Remington Golden Saber;
1347fps/725fpe, ES 38fps, SD 13fps.

AA #7/11.4grs/Starline brass/WLP/180gr Winchester JHP notched;
1373fps/753fpe, ES 24fps, SD 09fps.

Hope this helps. :)

Never loaded any 10mm...but Power Pistol sure does bring the 45acp to life...its a great powder for hot loads in several calibers.

Thanks for the info but how many grains is stiff and how heavy is heavy. Thanks Mirando

I went back over my 10mm loading data, Power Pistol has about 100fps lesss MV than either AA #7/AA #9 for 180gr JHPs.

Ahhh yes, it does that quite well :dancingbananna:

Power Pistol/230gr Golden Sabers is my inventory loading for .45auto/1911, combination of high MV, excellent accuracy and fairly short brass ejection distances is hard to beat. Oh . . . . . . . :biggrin:

Right now I am using TiteGroup but I dont recall the grain amount and over it I am putting a 180 grain Sierra JHP. It feels like a very potent load but I need to get out the chorny to measure it. I have also used Universal but I still feel that maybe there is something harder hitting then what I am useing. I am loading for hunting not PD. I am hoping to draw a Elk tag this year and I want to shoot it with my new Fusion Hunter, Mirando
