BlueDot or a powder in that burn range will work pretty well from midrange to wild. Longshot works for me, good accuracy & vel. BlueDot is decent. HS7 was good, no longer made & AA#7 works well too. SOme guys like PP, just haven't tried it. I can use LS in my 357sig loads to, so I've pretty much stopped looking for a 10mm powder.
"Given adequate penetration, a larger diameter bullet will have an edge in wounding effectiveness. It will damage a blood vessel the smaller projectile barely misses. The larger permanent cavity may lead to faster blood loss. Although such an edge clearly exists, its significance cannot be quantified".
