Some competitions (USPSA and IPSC) have a power factor.
The .38Super is not the best for inexperienced reloaders.
The 10mm can be reloaded at a lower power factor than commercial (and still make "Major" power factor) and the platform allows an additional round over the .45.

In competition, that extra round can make a difference.

Makes sense. Guess my lack of competition shooting is showing.

Get her dirty, then clean her so she starts to respect you. When her trust is complete, she will serve you well for a lifetime!
