Winchester Silvertip has always been a full-power load. SIG has a pretty hot 180gr JHP.
I rarely shoot anything more threatening than cardboard, but it's still nice to have some shock and awe, occasionally.
The intent of 10mm was to replace .45 as a duty/military cartridge, with ballistics of 200gr @ 1050fps.
The original hot-hot Norma loads resulted largely from miscommunication between them and the cartridge's designer, and shouldn't be considered a starting point for "real" 10mm.
Runs off at the mouth about anything 1911 related on this site and half the time is flat out wrong.
