Add another name to the Power Pistol list.
I tried Blue Dot but ended-up with lots of un-burned powder.
Power Pistol is the winner from my POV.

I sure wish there was some Ramshot Enforcer data for the 10mm - seems like it would be a great fit for highest velocity/lowest pressure.

m&p-
keep in mind that those Rainier bullets are plated, and so should be loaded as you would load lead, keeping velocities low. For hot rod loads, use a real jacketed bullet.

Glock G20's are notorious for spent casing "bulge". I acquired 500 pcs of once fired brass and upon inspection all the brass was bulged, obviously the seller did not disclose this detail. You can run bulged brass through a LEE .40/10mm FCD die to remove the bulge. Subsequent full house firings through my Kimber 10mm do not seem to be bulging brass. Excellent article on handloading 10mm :
