    I've got some in my closet, tested 5fps slower than WWB .40, in a side by side test.
    Yea you have to shop for certain brands (I forget which ones but I am looking that up right now) and really should be using a 6" barrel to get the most velocity. I think anything north of 1300 fps is "true 10mm" speeds right?

    Academy on HWY 6 in Houston had more .30-30 on the shelf than I’ve seen in a loooong time. Maybe 30, 35 boxes. They had a single box of .38 special, which I promptly liberated from the shelf. Also they had 9mm JHP, which I haven’t seen in almost two years.

    Was in San Antonio this past weekend. Visited two Academy stores. Looking for .22lr.
    No .22lr love but I did see some SIG 10mm HP on the shelves. $26 for twenty rds but there it was.
    Haven’t seen 10mm at Academy in ages.

    At current prices I should remove my 10mm pistols from the safe and store the ammo in the safe.
