Default 8mm and 9mm vs 10mm

So this is a picture of a 8mm 9mm and a 10mm the 8 and 9 like very similar which makes sense but why is the 10mm so much bigger than the other two

Because they had to make FBI agents feel like girlie men and whine for the .40 S&W.

Standard AP 10mm Caseless is what they used against Aliens for heaven's sake man!!!

PS: put a pic of a .40 and a .45 in there bud.

8mm? What 8mm cartirdge is that? The only one I know of is the 8mm Nambu and it is bottle necked.

The 10mm was Created by Jeff Cooper as a slightly slower cartridge for the Bren Ten pistol. The FBI went to the 10mm for some field tests. They found that in the 1911 platform it was too much gun for many agents to handle esp women and smaller men (Girly men). The 10mm is far superior to the 9x19mm. It is the only semiauto cartridge that you can hunt with other than the 357 mag Coonan or the Gangster Desert Eagles.

How about the .460 Rowland? You can hunt with that. About the same ballistics as the .44 mag.

8mm,9mm and 10mm refers to the size of the bullet it's self. Has nothing to do with the case.

Here is some .45's. they all look different. But they all have a .45 projectile.

I kinda presumed 8mm Steyr. As for the pics I thought you might put them all together -- they might all mak better sense then.

The 10mm is extraordinary.

Most any .32 Caliber is a 7.92 or 8MM Caliber.

"Slightly slower" than what? As designed the 10mm was a Magnum powered cartridge. It was slowed/dumbed down to the point the engineers saw they could match the watered down ballisitcs in a cartridge that would fit in a 9mm sized pistol. Hence the .40 S&W (Short & Weak).

Asking why a 10 mm is so much larger (longer) that the other two is like asking why the .300 Remington Ultra Mag is so much larger than 7 X 30 Waters when they are less than one millimeter different in diameter.
