new Davis County 10mm Glocker

picked up a new G20 at sportsmans warehouse last week.
Get this... they sell the G20 & G29 but dont sell ammo for them.... wtf?

I bought the last box smith & edwards had. I took it up to the wasatch gun range in fruit heights... an wow what a pleasure it is to shoot!

I wish double tap wasnt located all the way down in cedar city. If anyone knows who carries 10mm ammo within an hours drive let me know so I'm not stuck ordering off the web w/all those nasty hazmat shipping charges

Anybody shooting 10mm needs to reload. The cartridge just begs for it. You can put together top quality ammo for $.14/round or $7 a box of 50.

I have a bag of about 20 10mm cases I'll donate to your cause.

that would be nice on the cost...but worries me a little since I've never reloaded or know anything about it. Should I be concerned at all about the warning that came w/my new glock about not voiding the warranty by shooting reloads?

If you reload & are in my area then perhaps you or someone you know can teach me sometime.

I couldn't care less about voiding the warranty.

You're smart to approach reloading cautiously, it's not hard, but you do have to pay attention or bad things can happen.

I'm down in Alpine, but I'm sure there are plenty of northerners that reload and would show you the ropes. Go shoot some IPSC matches at the fruit heights range. You'll meet a ton of nice guys there. There are even some matches in Logan somewhere, I've never been to one of them.

I'm gonna hafta seriously consider getting into reloading again. I reloaded shotshells out the ying-yang when I was a pup.

I just bought a box of .380 Silvertips - 50 count, and the cost was goll darn near forty bucks!



Oh, and welcome to the forum, jdog.

I had a bunch of Doubletap 180 gr. practice ammo for sale on KSL and no one bit, it was cheaper than you can buy it for. They bought all of my 10mm reloads though. I have at least 500 spent 10mm cases but I don't reload at all.

+1 on the reloading.

Go buy the ABC's of Reloading and start eye-ing equipment. Visit the reloading forum and read the stickies too.

Reloading isn't hard IMO. If you're attentive and intelligent then it's an easy and fun process. I'm a scientist so everything is pretty well organized which makes things a lot easier. Keeping good data is also second nature to me. If those aren't habits of yours then start working on building those skills/habits then take a stab at reloading.

I really need to start reloading if I plan on shooting as much as I would like to, the price of .223 is killing me. I found blazer shoots better than the Winchester stuff for me and thatís helping me with the pistol part.
I have been looking at the Dillon progressive loaders pretty seriously, although the one I really like costs about $600.

And Gixxer, the tips you gave me shooting have helped a lot, I was able to nail golf balls pretty consistently at about 15 yards with my 21 a little while ago.

You can get into some Lee equipment for a fraction of the Dillon cost, and then upgrade later, if it catches your fancy.

So I went to the reloading forum, and ... guess who "Mr. Stickie" is ...

Woo Hoo! Our own Mr. Koski! We have greatness in our midst!

(I'm not worthy, I'm not worthy ...)

But seriously, great work there, Steve - thanks for the good info, great posts.
