    No. Currently carry a S&W 1006 so the 10mm is not too much for me. My paws are plenty big for the grip. I will pick up significant capacity over the 9+1 I currently have. 15 +1 or 17 + 1 with extended base pads is a significant upload.

    Nice. Now that I do not have to spend $$ on 50 AE rounds, I can justify getting a G20 and spend the cash on 10mm rounds. (until I get into reloading) :)

    Yeah check in to reloading becouse not alot of people make hot rounds for the 10mm but with handloads you can make it a monster

    I already load for 10mm, and about 25 other calibers. I will have to get a new barrel to shoot my 175 gr hard cast truncated cones

    Was it fairly easy to pick up? (skill of reloading) From what I have seen it does not look that hard to learn. What's your take on a newbie picking up reloading?

    Theres no skill to reloading its all in taking your time and checking and rechecking get some reloading books they tell you everything you need to know. And its pretty fun

    Hey Robocop 10mm, I did not mean to hijack your thread. I am however really wanting to learn the reloading process. Any other advice on going about starting it?

    rcbs makes a kit for about 300 bucks it has what you need to get started (press, scale, powder measure, case trimmer) except the dies, components and a book of knowledge.... there are a few tools out there that will make it easier and quicker like a media tumbler and electronic case trimmer but ya can get those later as ya go..... or drop the cash and get a progressive press it would be the quickest easiest way but the good ones cost some bucks

    For my fellow 10mm fans if you aren't familiar with Double Taps ammo. they make some smoken' hot accurate stuff. Not cheap but if you don't have the time to reload worth the extra nickel.

    Thanks for the info. I am going to start looking these items up. I am itching to get started ASAP, lol. I am familiar with the basic idea of reloading, I just have to start looking it all over. Looks like another hobby is about to start for me!

    You can get into a dillon square deal b for 375. Comes with the dies of your choice. It will do 3-400 rounds an hour. Only down fall is that it's for pistol ammo only and the dies are different from other loaders but all I load is pistol so it's fine for me. My ar gets steel plinkers and the remi 700 likes black hills so it's all good.

    Robo's taking the tupperware plunge! I am in for the pics. I also want to know how you think the glock handles the hot loads compared to the mighty 1006. Even if the nugget makes it sound silly, i think that 20c would be a great sidearm/backup for hog hunting.

    Nice move! 15/17 + 1 of 10mm will do the trick every time! The most flexible round out there, especially since you reload. You can make puddytat loads all the way up to bear stoppers, kinda like a 41 or 44 Magnum.

    I was thinking of getting a G20 this week, but think I'm going to start investing in reloading equipment first. Then I can make some 10mm rounds to feed my next gun.
