Double Tap 200 Grain Nosler?

I am going to need a high penetration jacketed hollowpoint for woods carry. Double Tap claims this round is a high penetration round.

http://www.doubletapammo.com/php/cat...products_id=40

Has anyone tested it? I would really like a 200 grain XTP loaded to 1200 FPS.

Any other suggestions?

Thanks..

I will also be playing with the Buffalo Bore 220grain HC...
I am going to stay away from DT because of the chrono inconsistencies and false advertising....

It stinks. There just aren't enough good choices for those of us who don't reload.

You summed up my thoughts exactly. I have been "thinking" about reloading for a while now. I am going to start saving for a reloading press now. I have been saving brass for a while (think I have around 1k rounds), so I should be OK to get started.

Mike's 200gr XTPs @ 1325 fps sure put a smile on my face...

Never got to shoot his 135gr Noslers @ 1700 fps. Those were part of my last order...

Every time I have looked at a box of 180s the past couple of years it has been loaded with Montana Gold bullets. I haven't seen Gold Dots for a long time. They are certainly stout, but the bullet isn't a defensive bullet.

Why do you say Montana Gold isnt a "defensive bullet" ? Can you elaborate so I could understand? I know the GD's would be a better choice because they are bonded...But a 180grain MG going 1327fps with a 705 KE cant be all that bad of a defensive bullet ??

Just because it's a hollow point, doesn't mean it's really designed to open. I've seen a video on YouTube that showed underwhelming performance.

Deep Blue, do you have a link to this test by any chance?

Anything pushed by a 10mm has got to be effective....at least somewhat effective....

Just a suggestion, you guy's should look into one of the inexpensive RCBS single stage kits and get started in reloading, at the cost of 10mm ammo it will soon pay for itself, not to mention you can then customize your loads to your needs.

If you shoot anything other then .223/9mm you'll save some serious bucks, I even hand load those two, not so much to save money but simply because my hand loads are superior to any factory load...especially .223/5.56 or something in-between.

The OP was inquiring about a heavy load for woods carry. That implies a need for a bullet that penetrates. A bullet that sheds mass in the manner of the MG target bullet will be less apt to penetrate to vitals on larger animals than a more suitable bullet like an XTP or, to a lesser extent, a 180 gr Gold Dot.

No doubt a high energy offering. They cycle great in my G20.

I agree. I have an RCBS Rockchucker Supreme press. It is a great tool. Probably will last for the rest of my life
