Both the 10mm Auto and the 9x25 Dillon preceded the .40 S&W and the .357 Sig. Why is it that the later .357 Sig stuck, but the 9x25 Dillon faded? Is it the same reason that .40 S&W is more popular than 10mm Auto?

Different platforms, the 9x25 Dillon wasn't really invented as a defense or combat type round, it was created so competition shooters who use race guns could wring every last possible drop of performance out of their compensators, 9x25 didn't have a fairly massive gun company throwing its weight behind it. I mean the 9x25 is cool and all, but you need a 10mm platform to use it, and the 10mm platforms tend to be Glock 20s or EAA Witnesses, or 1911s. I know there are a fair number of 20 enthusiasts on Glocktalk who play with the 9x25, but I haven't heard it talked about anywhere else.

They are both outstanding cartridges that deserve a lot more attention than they get, but without many agencies using 10mm and nobody I know of using 9x25..........well, it will never be "tacticool" enough to get the respect it (they) deserve. Just my opinion.

The ability to send a 95 gr bullet at 2,000 ft/s with around 850 ft lbs from a Glock is awesome.
