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.

Variants[edit | edit source]

10mm, hollow point[edit | edit source]

Hollow point bullets mushroom and break up on impact, causing massive trauma on fleshy, unarmored targets. However, this also means they break up when they hit things like armor plate, drastically reducing the bullet's penetrating power.

10mm, JHP (hand load)[edit | edit source]

A jacketed hollow point is a round designed with a harder outer metal coating with a hollowed cavity tip. The result is higher stopping power and wound trauma with increased armor penetration when compared to standard hollow point rounds, but inflict slightly less damage.
