Sig Sauer 10mm 180 gr V-Crown ammunition test

We shoot Sig Sauer 10mm 180 gr V-Crown ammunition from an EAA Witness with a 4.5″ barrel into Clearballistics ballistic gel to measure velocity, penetration, expansion/fragmentation, and retained weight.

    The world needs more 10mm Auto.

    • Stuki Moi

      And more 10mm auto pistols….

      Why the “staggered .45” crowd (M&P, Ruger, Sig, HK…..) don’t do 10mm guns is beyond me. The narrower 10mm round fully doublestacks in the staggered .45 width mags/grips.

      So you lose no capacity in 10mm, compared to the widebody/widegrip Glocks…. Seems like an absolute laydown, if you ask me. 15+1 10mm M&P, P227/P320, Ruger SR/American, HK10…. is a heck of a lot of firepower. In a gun with a normal-human compatible grip.

      • Edeco

        Yup. For a while I figured if I owned a 45 it would be single stack since I’d rather true double stack of 40 or just single. Like, above 40 I figured the hassles of more than a single stack outweigh the benefits.

        Mostly true but for me I found the FNX45 breaks the paradigm, squeezes a double column into a palatable grip.

  • Michael Gallagher

    Me thinks he does not know how to read a tape measure.

    Kept giving measurements in decimals when using a tape that is marked in typical 1/16th of an inch increments…………..which by the way does not translate in to 10ths of an inch. SMH.


    • Indianasteve

      Me thinks you should look at the video again. It appears to me that the rule has a scale in 1/16″ increments and another in 1/10″ increments.

  • Neil Hamilton Hightower III

    So is this considered a full power 10mm factory loading?

  • Nocternus

    I want to be a fan of 10mm but in the anemic loadings they are doing it just doesn’t make sense. So you have the same .40 Cal bullet available in 40 S&W loaded to achieve the same velocity as a 40 S&W but the ammo is significantly more expensive. If they start making bullets designed to perform at the speeds 10mm is capable of and actually doing full loads then i’m all in. In the state they are currently in it just doesn’t make sense to add this caliber to the vault.


      Great post, and very valid point on velocity. The unfortunate fact is the majority of firearms chambered in 10mm cannot survive a large diet of 200gr @ 1200fps let alone the enhanced performance of Underwood type commercial ammo 220gr @ 1200fps or 200gr @ 1250fps. The Glock 40 is a good exception due to it’s significantly increased slide mass. But most factory guns are honestly not up to the task to perform with any type of reliability as they come from the factory, with this hot 10 that is available.

    • Chris

      I do not understand either. It seems .45 Super is better all around VS 10mm too.

      • Nocternus

        I am not familiar with the performance of a .45 super. From what i have read it is identical in size and shape to a 45 acp but with a thicker case wall that can handle higher pressures. The 45 ACP suffers from its diameter and doesn’t stack well leading to limited magazine capacity. If a 10mm was loaded full strength IMO it would out perform a 45 Super simply by having 15 round double stack magazines. You also run into the same problem a 10mm suffers from that bullets aren’t designed specifically for the 45 Super so you would be using 45 ACP bullets not designed to perform at 300fps faster velocities.

  • FT_Ward

    If you want a relatively powerful round in a compact package, decent mag capacity, good trigger, good sights etc I like the Para Ordnance P12 in .45 ACP only because it’s not in 10MM. Or not.
