I've run blue dot and unique at .5gr over Max in both the glock and the Kimber with no case failure.

The 10mm is arguably the most versitile pistol round on the market today. 135 gr screamers to 200 gr thumpers. Even 220 gr hard cast hunting loads. I carry my 1006 Smith with 175 gr HP's that exit the muzzle at an honest 1280 fps. It is a handful and not for the faint of heart, but controllable in my bear paws. The FBI lite or subsonic ammo is the same power level as the standard .40 S&W.

I love my 10mm, but my old Smith is heavy and dated. I have a G-20C on order. Scheduled to be built the second week of September. I carry the 10 partly because so few do and I just want to be different. I am the only person still allowed to carry a 10mm in my agency. WHen we had to carry revolvers, I carried a S&W 657 .41 Mag. I just have to be different.

I like the 10mm. I currently have a First Edition Stainless Delta Elite (got it when they first came out) and a new Kimber Eclipse Custom II, both have (so far) proven to be reliable with everything I've fed them (~2000 rounds or so, all factory).

I also got the DE in blue when it first came out and it was crap. After three warranty trips to Colt, I swapped it for something else.

10mm is great round. If it's a carry gun and you have no time on it youll need quite a bit of practice as it is not a falt shooting round. it HOPS .

As far as ammo check this joint out http://www.underwoodammo.com/10mmauto.aspx

25/ per box of 50 for the ball ammo in any gr except 200 thats 27.50 not too bad and their carry ammo is a bit more but it;s the good stuff. Starline brass , GD bonded , xtp , or some generic hp they even still have a few boxes of golden saber left < my personal favorite 10mm round >

If your poor I dont think I'd get a 10mm but if your anything other than poor its affordable , just a bit pricey. good luck

Well thanks guys, very informative. I'm definitely getting a 10mm sometime. I don't know of I'm gonna press it into a self defense role but I have a feeling I'm gonna like shooting this baby!
