Have you tried Hornady 10mm 180 gr HP/XTP?

They claim:
* Controlled expansion to 1.5x its original diameter over a wide range of velocities.
* Heavier jacket stands up to the high pressures and velocities of the highest performance handgun cartridges.
* Controlled expansion with deep penetration.
* Recommended muzzle velocity range: 700 to 1500 fps

I have read accounts about the performance showing deep penetration and retention of bullet weight at the upper end of velocities for the various cartridges about which the articles or posts were written. I have no actual results on game animals to offer.

I know Doubletap used to load a 10mm Auto round with a 200 gr XTP bullet. They claimed a muzzle velocity of 1250 fps.
