I would also read up on jacketed vs HCL vs Hollowpoint.
I had a friend shoot one last year at about 40 yards with a 180 grain gold dot jacketed hollowpoint. Good blood to start but we trailed in thick stuff for a couple hundred yards and lost the trail. He is usually a good shot and has harvested other deer with a handgun so I believe him when he said it was a good hit. And we waited a couple hours before tracking.
I've since read that many hollow points at for the 10 mm tend to open to quick and inhibit penetration. Maybe they are actually designed for 40 S&W velocities?
