The 10mm as designed by Norma.
Not the commercial loads of today.

10mm period.

If the grips too big, go cry in a big bowl of 40 short and weak.

10mm is very versatile. From uber light IDPA rounds, to full bore +p rounds, 357sig is weak sauce. Plus, who wants a bottleneck pistol round?

What's wrong with a bottle neck pistol round? You're putting a .355 diameter bullet into a .40 (or so) hole. It ups the reliability factor. Yes the 10MM is a versatile and powerful round. I happen to like it a lot, but it's not for everyone. The 357 SIG is weak sauce? It's got a very good real world stopping record. Maybe you are man enough to not mind getting shot with it, not me thank you very much.

Both are difficult to find on the shelf so reloading will be required if you plan to shoot a lot. 10 mm is going to be much easier to reload. My vote would be for the 10 mm. And for the record the 10 mm is no where near as powerful as a 41 magnum. Do the math.

Can I shoot you with my 22? I'm refraining from speaking my mind here.

Do you reload? .


Sure, its a 9mm projectile In a 40 parent case..... 40 being dumbed down from a 10mm.

So I ask ... 9x25 Dillon anyone?


Its got real world stopping record? For the record, how many individuals have YOU stopped with it?

The Pottawatomie Indian Reservation Police carry 10mm . When asked why, he replied "ever try to stop a drunk Indian .. "


Argue till yer blue. 10mm is superior.

Chill pill, Dude. My comment about getting shot with a 357 wasn't in any way a threat to you, I'm just trying to point out that your comment about the 357 being "weak sauce" is false. Ever read Street Stoppers by Marshall and Sanow? Very interesting stuff there. Yes I reload. Try finding ammo for the 9X25 Dillon. Is the 357 SIG the ultimate, most wonderful do all caliber made? No, neither is the 10MM. Nothing can do it all. There is such a thing as too much power and over penetration can be and is a problem. Yup you can load the 10MM down but then you have a 40 S&W. There's a reason the 44 mag isn't the worlds best man stopper and it's because it's too powerful for that purpose. Hunting round? Yes it's a great one. 10MM is superior? In some ways yes, it some ways no. To me it's one of the better calibers out there and as I said, I like it but it's not the be all and end all, that's all I'm sayin'.

I have no problems at all finding 357SIG ammo. For the most part you are correct. There are some loadings that are very similar between the two calibers but the 41 can be loaded to be quite a bit more powerful than the 10MM. It really is between the 357 Mag and the 10. I think most similar rounds are more controllable in a semi mostly because semi-auto's sit lower in the hand for the most part and recoil feels less.
