Good Job Ken!

Take those does out!!! And nice buck. Michigan is loaded with deer!!! And a lot of nice ones at that. I ended up filling my last tag, unfortunately it wasnt with the G20. She was at 75 yards. Same fence row between same corn fields. A tad out of my comfy range this time. So........ the 12 gauge she got!!!! lol

Who else took a deer with 10mm this season? I enjoy reading about hunting stories with the 10!!

Update...

Hows everybody tday? Its been a while.

Goods news... When we skinned the doe I ended up recovering the 135gr Nosler JHP. It had made it all the way (diagonally, as she was quartered to me just a tad) through the chest cavity, (where everything was just moosh ), continued through the opposite shoulder and was found in the thick fatty tissues just between the hide and meat.

I was surprised in two ways after this experience using this ammo on whitetail deer. First i was surprised when i field dressed the animal and found all the fragmentation. When at first i couldn't find the slug or an exit I just couldn't make myself believe that the entire thing just fragged apart like that. But thats what I came to... Upon finding the slug, i was even more surprised to see such a nice mushroom still intact as it should be. So it had me baffled... I was curious to see the new weight.

Here are a couple pics. The slug retained 93-94 grains(cheap scale, went back and forth). From 135 that gives 42 grains of frag. Im glad we eventually found it. It help put an ending to my doubts and misunderstanding of what had happened with the bullet.

The 10 Ring
The 10 Ring

Even though i will no longer be using the Corbon 135gr JHP for deer. Ill take performance like that anytime! I've since developed a 180gr XTP handload from my 6" LW barrel that i am really liking. Ended up settling for a little lower velocity than i was expecting but wow is it accurate! I'll report on that load some other time from the G20 and the Mech Tech CCU. But...

That's my deer hunting report for the season. Sorry i was a little late. Hope you found it interesting.

Excellent, thanks for the report on the specifics of the 135gr Nosler performance on your deer kill!

Michigun, that is good news that you found the slug. I've weighed these Nosler 135s through milk jugs & found very similar results to what you found there in the deer. We know it works! I am also going with 180 gr. xtps soon as my next work up.

In light of that Nosler 135 performance, do you guys think that is too much for SD purpose, as in collateral damages it may cause ?

I am intrigued. May be the same bullet at lower speed than the 1400fps, but will it open up the same way ?

I don't think its too much at all... its the common weight used in .40SW defense loads and has an extremely high one-shot-stop percentage, even at .40 velocities (1250fps). Even a mild 10mm loading would be devastating and I've no doubt that a 135gr at 1600fps would be nothing short of a bomb. The nice thing is, its a normal bullet. Its not even a "deadly black talon cop killer armor piercing exploding tungsten core" bullet... its just a normal hollowpoint. I keep my 10's loaded with 135's at home since I want something that stops in the "first jug", so to speak. :P

Don't know if this qualifies, but I had to finish this buck off with my S&W 610.

Sure it counts, it's 10mm auto round as well. Last year I was looking for a SW 610 revolver but nobody would sell it, seems like it's a keeper once you got it. So I bought used Taurus M44 6.5" CP.
About your deer, did you weigh him? What was your primary hunting weapon in this case?

238lbs. 25 in. neck. Primary weapon was Remington 700 VTR .308 pushing a 168gr. Hornady Match BTHP handload. 125 yard off hand neck shot. The 10mm behind the shoulder was insurance.

This is by far the best damn thread/topic on this whole forum. Glock's best handgun used for a very good purpose. If i cant end up trading my 20 for a 1911, ill buy a 6" barrel and try my luck here in ohio, of course i wouldn't shoot at a deer past 25yds with my accuracy. i think if i shoot more and more i will get more accurate. One of my problems might be these factory sights, i hate em, like the heine straight 8's, seem like they would be a good sight for my eyes. But to all you who slayed a 4 legged beast with the 10mm, praise ye

I would be interested to hear any tips or suggestions for sights.

I am thinking something that glows. But most of those are so big - they would probably totally cover a deer at twenty yards and beyond.

I've been over and over this in my own quest to find the perfect setup. Short of getting an electronic reflex sight, I'd go with a target rear blade (black) and a red or green fiber optic front sight, as thin as you can find. The FO doesn't take much light at ALL to make it glow. I can see my sights pretty well even RIGHT as sunup.

Couldn't agree more. Dawson precision makes a nice set, and LPAs look nice too.

Here is the Axis deer I shot a couple years ago with my Glock 20 10mm using Buffalo Bore 180gr. Gold Dots. The shot was at about 35 yards high in the lungs, the expanded bullet was found under the skin on the off side.

The 10 Ring

Here is the bullet (on the far right) next to one from a hog and a coyote.
