Recent affinity for 10mm

Dear THR:
I am drawn to 10mm, finally. For years I have been trying to justify why should one have 10mm until I bought Colt Delta Elite. Perfect!

Energy is excellent yet keeping size of the round within true semi-auto parameters. In fact, size is better that one would expect with the amount energy it has.

I shot around my delta elite a bit. When finally convinced that for me it is the best round (cost is irrelevant to me since I am not using it for sports just SD). I placed orders for Glock 20 and 29- what is more to ask for? 9mm like capacity with lot more energy than 45. Why then compromise on .40?

Also in talks (through my agent) with Wilson and Nighthawk for one each from their shops. Meanwhile, also placed order for a bulk quantity of ammo.

I am just surprised why not more manufacturers make 10mms. Wish there was a 10mm in H&K.

What do fellow 10mm users think?

Thanks

I think I've got a deal for you. :)

I have:
--a 2008 DW CBOB 10mm with about 700 rounds through it, and $250 of work into it (from a reputable 1911-smith, with receipt).
--950 rounds of HSM target FMJ ammo (bought 1000, shot 50).
--a box-here-and-a-box-there of SD ammo (couple of Silver Tip, some GA, etc.)

And, if you are a handloader, I have:
--500 rounds of new Starline brass.
--About 1500 rounds of once-fired brass.
--About 1500 projectiles (mostly 180 gr lead, but also 100 Golden Sabre JHP).

--two sets of dies.

If you have any interest, pm me.

Sorry I'm going to be that annoying poster who has nothing helpful to add, but the 10mm has been on my radar for awhile since I found out that you can convert a Glock 30 to 10mm, I would already own one if I reloaded. Glad to see you are enjoying the 10mm. I wish more manufactures made handguns chambered for it also. Please post some photos.

Love my G20. Not much to not like about 15+1 .40 cal 200 gr. JHP @ 1250 fps except for the relative lack of popularity. For sure, the 10mm deserves more than it has gotten, and offers a lot more than any other auto cartridge on the market in terms of utility and versitility. The 10mm Auto is where it is at...

I'm a fan of the 10mm, but understand why it will never be mainstream. Against human threats it is more gun than needed. As a hunting handgun it can't keep up with long barreled magnum revolvers. But it has a strong following, the round is holding steady in popularity if not gaining small steps.

It's niche for me is as my hiking/camping/woods gun in bear country. From long 6"-8" barrels 41 and 44 magnum revlovers clearly outpace the 10mm. But when fired from common 3"-4" guns one would carry backpacking the 10mm comes pretty close and still offers the advantages of a semi for human threats.

Bad pic, but my G-20 next to my 3" S&W 629. The Glock is 3/4 lb lighter, 1" shorter, and holds 10 more rounds. The 10mm shoots 200 gr bullets @1315 fps from my gun. The 44 magnum shoots 240 gr bullets @ 1150 fps from my gun. I could get 1500 fps from an 8" revolver, but if I'm carrying an 8" revolver I'd just as soon carry a rifle.

I have a 10mm EAA Elite Match. I think it is the perfect caliber. Powerful at standard pressures, and the 40 bullet is a nice medium between .35 and .45.

JMR kind of hit on the issue. For SD, it is a powerhouse, not that I mind the power, but my 9mm high power is a bit more controllable.

Me...I like to have options...why choose a favorite? The nice thing about the 10mm is flexibility. I can shoot 125 grain all the way up to 200 grain leadcast or XTPs. It is versatile enough to carry loads for SD in an urban or wooded environment. I wouldn't trust a 9mm to stop a charging wild hog...but I've pretty comfortable with the 10mm getting the job done.

Titan didn't work out and I was told there was a delay, at least a year. But will get ut ine things are sorted out.

Orders placed for Glock 20 and 29 (should get 20 within 2 months). Glock 29 in but custom clearing.

Orders also placed for Wilson Combat Protector 10mm and Nighthawk HLS 10mm through my agent. He said they are custom gun and may take as much time as possible end year 2014- those here who have nighthawks and wilsons may be able to tell me more about it.

And here is my delta elite: http://www.thehighroad.org/showthread.php?t=731659

DW's Elite guns take a long time. i would still get titan in due time (fingers crossed). I got Havok and it took almost a year.

You have three posts in this short thread all aiming at my integrity with sarcastic remarks those nothing to do with the thread's subject matter.

Agent is used as clearing agents who import firearms for you. Anything (firearm) going out of the US will require an export permission by the State Department and thats for each individual item. It takes lots of time. All this is handled by an agent for a fee otherwise I would have to quit my routine work and just do this. Then when permission is granted, shipping and handling is also done by agent who knows how. Manufacturers dont usually ship for civilian orders. Once shipped then comes the clearing part on my neck of woods. He clears, pays duties and files paperwork. Then I can claim the item from him and have it registered in my name.

That is why I use a clearing agent for all this as I have staff for other things as well.

There have been many reports of similar problems with other Glock .45acp-to-10mm conversions.

I'm also a 10mm fan. If you reload, it can be a very versatile round. You can download it to basically be a .40 that won't blow up if you get a lot of bullet setback, then amp it up past .357 into mid-.41 magnum territory. And since it's very similar in overall length, it is easy to make run reliably in 1911's and other firearms designed around the .45ACP. If you like light-and-fast, you can find 135gr blasters that just scream out of the barrel, and if you like big, heavy bullets, it will push a 200 gr LSWC with ease.

Worst aspect is trying to hang onto the brass, since you'll almost never find anyone else's just lying on the range to make up for ones you lose!

I can't say much bad about the 10mm, I went out shooting my Gen4 G20 some yesterday and it was a hoot, the gun is really very accurate, the very first shot was dead in the center of the black on the bullseye. I handload for nearly everything I shoot which helps out immensely. Some of my favorite and most accurate loads are a 200gr WFNGC (over lots of 800x) that runs a little over 1,300 fps from my KKM G4 G20, a 180gr XTP (800x again) that does about 1,370 fps and a 200gr XTP (Longshot or 800x) that hovers around 1,250 fps.

Plus I've got a KKM .40 barrel for it, and it's got a long throat so no only will it shoot any .40 S&W, it will shoot long loaded (1.250"+) .40 S&W so I can use .40 S&W brass for 10mm like loads.

I really enjoy the G20, although it's not my most powerful Glock, that would be the G21 shooting 230-300gr .45 Super.

I have a G20 with a 6" barrel, a 40 cal barrel, a 357 SiG barrel. It provides the ability to use a varity of rounds if one or the other is not available. The 357 Sig really performs well on this larger platform.

I have fired thousands of rounds in all three calibers and had no feeding problems from any of the calibers out of the 10MM mags.

Additionally, I have a Glock 21 slide and barrel assembly that allows me to use of 45 acp

I don't know anything about Colt's, but this seems to explain it fairly well:

"Cannot be used in Colt Delta Elite or any other firearms with rampless barrel due to complete lack of case support."

The barrels I use for handloaded 10MM in my Glock are all fully supported.

10mm fans might want to check out the new STI Nitro in 10mm, it has a supported barrel and according to the owner of STI it is "timed" for the 10mm.

I don't think it's on their website yet, I saw a video review at Show Show over on the 1911 forum in the STI section. You might Google and find it on Youtube and the Firearms channel.

El Godfather, if it were me I wouldn't shoot full powered Double Tap, Underwood or Buffalo Bore out of a Delta, I'm not saying you can't, just saying what I would do. (Excepting Underwood's Delta load)

I've been shooting 10mm for over 20 years...I mostly make my own and only occasionally run it full bore, especially in my 1911 Dan Wesson CBOB....I do have hot woods loads but only run a few mags a year after load development.

el Godfather,

Just pulled my barrel and it looks about exactly the same as your with a round in the chamber. Mine is recent manufacture purchased new about one year ago. I have not had any issues with the brass so far, but I've only shot mild Remington UMC loads through it and then various medium handloads re-using the same Remington brass a few times. I'm not too concerned about it since I don't plan on loading it with max loads anytime soon. I can't afford those premium commercial loads and have all the fun I need blasting magnum revolvers when the urge to go hot strikes.

I did notice in some online forum complaints that a lot of the brass issues seemed to tie back to some weak brass produced around 2004, but it does seem to me that something in a more fully supportive chamber wouldn't be a bad idea if you want to max out 10mm loads. However, I don't know that from experience and am not really interested in experimenting.

I have swallowed the 10mm pill. I read internal reports of the 10mm from the FBI 20 years ago and it has always stuck with me. I found a Glock 29 gen 4 at a price i could not pass on so i bought it. (November of last year) Since then i have upgraded the barrel and acquired a model 20 gen 4. I am not a Glock fan epically in high pressure calibers but have found a happy medium with after market barrels. Have been working up reloads with 180 gn hp and 800x and Acc 9.

As far as I know HK never made the UMP/USC in 10mm but they did make a few MP5s chambered for that round. Thureon Defense also makes a carbine that can be had in 10mm, 9mm, .40 S&W and .45 ACP. It uses an AR lower and basically looks like an AR but it's direct blowback operated. I'd like to get one in 10mm eventually as a home defense & camping gun.

I've been a 10mm fan and user since the early 90s, My blued Delta was my first 1911 and has gone through a few changes, I bought another stainless one to shoot IPSC limited class after building my blued gun into a open class comp gun. Was planning on doing some upgrades to the stainless delta (new barrel, sights and such when I found a Dan Wesson PM7 ended up selling the SS delta to a friend. I also had a 6 1/2" no dash 610 that had optics mounted and a ported barrel, but sold it when I quit shooting IPSC and Bowling pin matches. Here is the current stable of 10mm.

Well... it seems like there's quite a few of us. Back when 10mm was adapted by FBI I wasn't that interested, but a few years ago when I found a Colt Delta Gold Cup I couldn't pass, I've fallen in love with the cartridge. Full power loads are a bit of a handful to anyone who isn't somewhat competent with medium/high power handguns, but stopping power is nothing short of awesome and I absolutely love having 16+1 of them at my disposal in a modified double stack Para.

A carbine in the same caliber would compliment my 10mm:s nicely...

To me the Privi is a good value. Good practice ammo and save the brass and reload to personal preference. My favorite gun is the G29SF. But I do not load hot ammo. I use Underwood for my SD loads and occasionally shoot a couple mags for practice. I can shoot the G29 as well as any of my other Glocks.

el Godfather,
No, not all 1911's in 10mm have unsupported barrels. My RIA's (10mm) have ramped, fully supported barrels. In the Delta I would stick with a MAX of warm 40 S&W level loads. No reason to beat it up. Colt will admit that its not designed to shoot the original Norma spec loads. Make sure your custom makers know if you want to fire Norma spec loads; they build and set up your pistols for doing this. The glock 10mm, with the factory barrels, have a very sloppy chamber and do not like Norma level loads. That is why those of us using the glock install a after market barrel with tighter chamber specs. From mild to wild the 10mm will do it (if set up correctly). Best of luck.

You all have made me feel sad I have to wait to shoot my 10mm.

I grabbed a RIA 10mm on an impulse last year, but local area is not conducive for 10mm shooting or handloading in general (bush Alaska). I have to wait until I move (probably the end of summer, or early fall) until I can really get into shooting/loading for it.

I'll just have to settle for my .45's for now. :fire:

The more I read this thread, I feel Delta is just hot air.

With Glock 20 Gen4, what needs be changed in order to be able to fire all sorts of hot loads, except hand loaded super hot stuff. I only fire factory loads. I do not reload.

If you want to shoot nothing but hot loads in a semi just buy a S&W 10XX and be done with it.

Witness Elite Match in 10mm is also a viable option. The only changes I made for mine were a 20 pound wolf spring and upgraded guide rod.

Nothing needs to be changed, I've ran some very warm handloads through my stock Gen4 20 with ZERO issues, zero modifications. The Gen4 recoil assembly does a great job on recoil. I do have a KKM barrel for it too, but that's because I reload and the KKM is a little easier on the brass than the stock barrel, but since you don't handload, you don't really need anything. I'd probably upgrade the sights though, that's it.

10mm is a great round! Love my G20. And yes I really wish more manufacturers made them. If Sig started offering the P220 or similar in 10mm, I would jump on it immediately. I've been casually looking around for one of the EAA 10's, but no luck finding one locally to try out yet.

One of these days I'll get around to picking up a nice 1911 in 10mm, but it's not in the budget any time soon.

I haven't shot one so I can't say I'm addicted to them, but I am certainly intrigued by them. Every time I'm in the market for a new gun I say its next on the list and it seems like something else always wins out in the end. I need to go ahead and pull the trigger on one.

The EAAs seem to be the least expensive way to get into one. Or a G20, though even the SF model is a little large for my short fat fingers.
