10mm is a type of ammunition in Fallout and Fallout 2.

Background

Main article: 10mm

Before the War, the powerful 10mm Automatic round was the standard ammunition for the Bureau of Alcohol, Drugs, Tobacco, Firearms and Lasers and other law enforcement agencies, while the military was more reliant on experimental energy weapons (although it remained the round of choice for conventional pistols and submachine guns).[1] The Circle G brand of ammunition was one of the most popular, offering excellent centerfire cartridges for a variety of applications.

Characteristics

The 10mm is the most common ammo found in the wasteland. The JHP is intended to shoot low-armored targets, while AP gives more power to cut through armors, but has lower overall damage.

In Fallout, ammunition modifiers are not applied properly which makes the 10mm equal to any other kind of ammunition and both JHP and FMJ versions functionally identical.

Variants

There are two variants of 10mm ammunition:

  • 10mm AP (Ammunition. Caliber: 10mm, armor piercing.)
  • 10mm JHP (Ammunition. Caliber: 10mm, jacketed hollow-points.)
