Ammo question for those full power guys.

I'm waiting on my Gen 4 20 to arrive and was just curious as to what y'all deem weak ammo? I have 500 rds. of Underwood 180 gr FMJ and as those chug along at 1300fps, I was curious as to what your thoughts were on something like the Georgia arms canned heat at 1100 fps? I bought this gun just for the hell of it and don't really plan on getting too much ammo for it, but if I do I want something that will boom. I know it sounds weird but I don't shoot anything but 357 mag out of my 686 SSR, cause hey what's the point of having a magnum if I shoot 38s out of it, right? Thanks for your opinions.

You bought the hottest commercially available 10's avail., to my knowlege. Can't speak for GA but if you want raw power, UW is your ammo... unless you want to get into max loading your own.
Enjoy that G20! Ping us back with a range report once ya get a chance...WITH PICTURES TOO ;-)

If you don't load your own, UW is the one.

GA canned heat is great for target practice and performs well.....and yes it is weak. Pick up a box of Underwoods 135gr at 1600 fps. Fill up a mag and stagger the GA and Underwood. You'll get a kick out of it!!

I've found the UW 155 grain TMJ to have a lot of kick out of my G29. Happens to be the cheapest UW round also. Don't forget to use the 5% off coupon code posted on the forum.

The 155 grain is #1 in muzzle energy, and #2 in velocity, second only to the 135 grain screamer.

Here is some great info by DRSJR1969 who measured a bunch of different 10mm with the chrono.

I don't know if I mentioned this but I really like the 155gr TMJ. Just saying.

Thanks for the opinions guys. I really appreciate the thoughts and I may have to get into loading my own eventually. I'll post back when I get out with her.

I carry their 180 Gold Dot, but also have the 135's, 200 TMJ, and 200 XTP. Couldn't be happier!
