    I just bought a Glock 20. Is the 10mm a good companion to take with me when I go hunting. I was told it is better to have then a .357 mag. Is this true? I would think that having 15 shots of 10mm versus 6 shots of .357 would be better. Am I correct? Thanks all.:D

    Full power 10mm rounds are very powerful and should meet your needs nicely. Which gun is better for that type task is more personal preference. I've carried .357's and my trusty GLock .45 into the forest. I believe six rounds is enough for almost anything you might find in the woods.

    When the 10mm came out it's power level was compared to the 41 magnum due to the ammo first produced for it and to the best of my knowledge it never destroyed any guns but was reduced due to people complaining they couldn't handle the recoil .

    I doubt this level of power would be very comfortable in a light weight gun like a Glock but people do worse things to there body's than shoot powerful guns .

    :rolleyes: Six of one, half a dozen of the other! I do not, however, consider either caliber when fired out of less than an eight inch barrel to be an adequate hunting arm for deer-sized game. (And, forget anything larger; you'll only make it angry!) ;)

    10mm loaded by Pro-Load or Double Tap with a 180 gr Gold Dot around 1300 fps is far more formidable than a .357 mag. I would not feel undergunned in the lower 48 with my 1006 and good Gold Dots. I would not go hunting with "only" a 10mm. For hunting, I would choose my 6" .41 mag as I am better able to shoot accurately at 50 yds and farther.

    :) I still say; ‘Six of one; a half dozen of the other;’ and, for pistol combat, I already know that I’ll do better with the 357 magnum. For hunting applications I’m, also, going to stay with my initial recommendation for a longer barrel, too. ;)

    (Among others, be sure to read JohnKSa's post!)

    Here's a nicely prejudiced excerpt from an article in Wikipedia. Not that it's inaccurate; but, needless to say, I think several of the author's conclusions are slanted in favor of the 10mm.

    I loved my g29. Bummed I sold it. And I would worry about too much in MI when I go camping with it. Whether two or four legged animals.

    But now I have a G30, which I am selling to get another G29.
