I shoot about 5 feet from muzzle to tube, just so I make sure it's a near perfect center hit.

You can get shipping tubes from anywhere that sells shipping supplies, like the UPS Store. I just make my own. I just roll up some cardboard and tape it up well.

I think that it is a late opening round (which I believe benefit greatly from high velocity). Which is also why I think it is well suited to 10mm.
I made a video of the process. It's on YouTube, here:

If there's something that I missed in the video, just ask me a specific question and I'll answer it for you.

From my first test, it actually appears the XTPs open really fast (almost instantly, but then the lead takes a while to peel back, and it is controlled expansion, so it doesn't expand too much. Check out my results of my modified 200gr XTP (info will follow). It was impressive.

I'll try to use Photobucket, but I've already uploaded them into Picasa. I'll change over to Photobucket in the next day or two.
