New to reloading 10mm cartridge. Usually I use X-treme RN bullets for 45 acp. I was reading Western Powders load data and it does not have a listing for using copper plated round bullets (RN).

Can I use that manufactures copper plated bullets? Can I use RN bullets. Where else could I find load data that might reference the usage of that combo? Recommended weight for plinking?

180gr is the "standard" weight for 10mm. 220gr is also somewhat common as well. You can find ammo in everything from 95gr up to the 220gr (and some heavier) but 180gr is good for plinking IMO

The X-treme plated bullets you can use regular jacketed load data but only the low end to mid range. Or the higher ends of lead rounds. Thats per their website. Like any load I'd start low and work up. There are some limits like keeping velocities under 1200fps

I run the x-treme 180gr RN in my 10mm but use Accurate #9. Havent had any issues with them.

This. Longshot or 800X. I get almost 1700 FPS out of the Nosler 135 Gr JHP and my Witness Elite Match

#7 is about the fastest powder I would use with 10mm. I have #5 but use it for 45 and others. #9, Longshot, Bluedot are my go to powders for 10.
