    10mm /.40 S&W

    Opinions please...

    Just snagged a near new condition Ruger marked P94, not P944 as the litituature states. Looks like less than a box of ammo went through it. Have a poop ton of .40 brass - processing it daly. Had a BREN -10. (BREN-WHEN is what we called it in those days because the gun came with no mags) Should of held on to it longer since they are now out of sight. Traded it for a new Colt Government in stainless for Deputy Duty.

    The .40s and 10mm have got my wheels spinning again. Opinions, comments on the 10mm and Ruger's oversized 1911 oversized 10mm please? I am a big fan of John Browning and his 1911.

    10mm's are selling like hotcakes, all the rage. One would be nice in a 1911. The extra capacity of the XDM or Glock appeals to me.

    AC,
    I carried a SW .40 as a duty weapon. I liked the round and found it to be more than adequate to put down injured deer. It was a more snappy recoil, in the hand than the .45 and 9mm, but not difficult to handle.
    As far as placing it against the 10mm, I cannot offer an opinion. I have never shot the 10mm.

    I had a Rock Island in 10mm and hated it and got rid of it. A lot of people like the 10mm in a 1911, just not me. I agree with Waffletop, I would look at a Glock 20 if I was going to get another 10mm.

    If you buy standard factory 10mm loads they are pretty much loaded to .40 power. The advantage comes with the hotter factory loads, Underwood, Buffalo bore, Double Tap etc or reloading.

    I normally carry a Glock 23 with me in the woods. It’s the only 40 that I own.

    I have been a proponent of the 10mm ever since it first appeared.
    Never owned a Bren 10, as it never appealed to me, but I acquired a Delta Gold Cup in 1990, as soon as Colt got the bugs worked out, and now have a Delta Elite as well that I purchased a few years ago.
    As a prior poster noted, most factory loads are toned down nowadays , so if you want to achieve the full potential of the round, Handloading is a big plus.
    I purchased 100 boxes of Winchester 175 grain Silvertips in the early 90's, so I am pretty well set for full power factory ammunition. But I reload a good bit, mainly with Hornady 155's and 180's.
    I have shot 2 deer with the Silvertips in the past, and both were one shot DRT experiences. One at about 40 yds, and the other at less than 20 yds. So I can say the 10mm will definitely do the job if you do your part.
    I like the 1911 in general, and the10mm in particular,
    as it works very well in the 1911.
    I have smaller than average hands for a man my size, so a high capacity pistol, with its accordingly fatter
    grip doesn't interest me.
    I figure if I cant get it done with 8 rds, I am laying down on the job.

    A Ruger 10mm is here, a highly favored pistol. Run it like a 10mm should be, reloaded 180 gr at 1200 fps . The CCW here, most of the time is a Glock 29 running the same load.

    Yep - otherwise not a gnats worth of difference.

    Love the 10mm. Have Glocks in 10mm two 20's and two 40's. The 40's in 10mm are some of the most accurate and nicest shooting pistol's I've shot. Remember the 10mm has more punch at 100 yards then the ole 45acp does at the muzzle.

    Just waiting for S&W to come out with a 2 inch barrel 610.
