I made a call to Ramshot regarding their True Blue powder. I was told that "as far as I can tell no one had ever tried that powder in 10mm". I told them that I would. I also gave them my Enforcer data that I had developed, just in case they were interested. Anyway, here it is: 10 shot avg, virgin Starline brass, CCI 350 primers, 1.26 OAL.

I think that this is the tip of the iceburg for this powder. I know that these velocities are not head-snappers, but these were very conservative "starter loads". This powder meters perfect and exhibits less pressure in than 180 UMC in all loadings shown! I will follow up with part two in a few days!
G29 10.8gr 800X 180XTP - 1255fps
6"KKM 10.8gr 800X 180XTP - 1508fps
-PS. Do not expect to get 800X or Blue Dot velocities from this powder, but I think that this stuff will definitely turns some heads.
