Glock went from the Glock 29 - 10 mm Auto to the Glock 30 .45 ACP, what is the difference between the sizes of these two ammo types?

Difference

.45 acp needs no introduction. Standard load 230 gr fmj @800-850 fps. "Defensive " ammo 180-200 gr JHP @ 950-1000 fps. Big, fat and slow.

10mm FBI "Lite" load 180 gr jhp @ 950-1000 fps. Hotter loads include 135 gr jhp @ 1500+ fps to 180 gr hp @ 1300 (Pro Load).

The FBI load designed to replicate the .45. The most sincere form of flattery?

Hotter loads put the 10 in the range of a .41 mag. They are rough on both the gun and the shooter but even rougher on the recipient.

.45 is more commonly available but the 10 has serious CDI points.

I think you'll find the Glock to be very controlable and accurate. If you can handle full loads in your .357 Mag you'll have no problem with a Glock in 357 Sig, 40 S&W or 45. I've never shot a 10MM but I'd imagine recoil is pretty stout. I use Double Tap ammo in my Model 32 and it's hot stuff and expensive but great ammo. Very powerful stuff!
