Discussion in 'Handguns: General Discussion' started by Smaug, Sep 13, 2022.


357 Magnum or 10 mm Auto as your only centerfire handgun cartridge?

  1. 357 Magnum, because I prefer the cartridge

  2. 10 mm Auto, because I prefer the cartridge

  3. 357 magnum, because I prefer revolvers in general

  4. 10 mm Auto, because I prefer auto pistols in general

  5. 357 Magnum, for another reason

  6. 10 mm Auto, for another reason

    I own both, load both, and carry both.

    I also love ‘em both.

    But I find 10mm more useful

    10mm because there's no practical way to suppress revolvers and I don't like shooting unsuppressed.

    But I'm glad it's not a choice I have to make! I may not shoot the wheel guns as much for the above reason, but I do still enjoy them, especially just looking at and handling. All of mine are Smiths, a 28-2, a 19-4, a 586-4, 686 no dash and a 360 PD.

    On that note, this is in the handgun forum, so we have to consider that there are only a handful of autopistol options for. 357, most of those pretty specialized and often impractical things like the Desert Eagle or Grizzly. But the equation changes a bit with rifles, my Marlin 1894 .357 with subsonic 158 gr .38 special loads being one of my most favorite suppressor hosts.

    It depends. If I want to shoot a semi-auto I’ll grab a .357 Mag. And if I want to shoot a revolver, the 10mm fits the bill nicely.

    I like the 10 better just because of capacity, can't argue with 15 rounds of 10mm
