10mm rounds (1)
Powder, pistol (12)
10mm JHP (hand load) (1)
Breaking down a standard 10mm round yields:

10mm, hollow pointEdit
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
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.
