What are you going to use the ammo for ❓I'm looking at getting some 10mm Underwood XTP in either 155gr, 180gr or 200gr for my XD-M 3.8.
- Does anyone have a preference for bullet weight?
- Is there a significant difference in felt recoil?
- I've read 155gr has more flip and 200gr has more of a push instead of a strong flip. Thoughts?
- Lastly, I read 155gr is generally louder than 200gr. I'm guessing smaller bullet + more powder = louder?
I read that the lighter the bullet the less recoil it has.
I believe sound decibels depends on two things, how much and what type of powder you have and the amount of grs the bullet has.
****Let’s go for assumptions here. Both bullets are traveling the same speed and that you are down range and can’t hear the report of the cartridge going off. This way we can compare apples to apples.
Yes, at both subsonic and supersonic speeds the large bullet will be louder. The shape of the bullet also makes a difference. In general the bullet with the greatest cross sectional area is usually louder. And a flat nose bullet will be louder than a round or spitzer (sharp) point bullet of the same cross sectional area .
The 10mm has a wide range of choices and ammo you use depends on what you will use it for
