    .40cal vs 10mm?

    I have been looking at getting a CA94 mp5 clone sometime in the near future, and found they have them available in 9mm, 10mm and .40cal.

    Ive never fired anything 9mm, but have always loved the .40cal since it was the first gun I ever fired a few years ago (glock).

    What are the differences in .40 and 10mm? Are bullets easier to come by for the .40?

    10mm is harder to find, more (way) expensive, and packs a much bigger punch than .40.

    .40 meows, 10mm barks.

    So if you had a choice which would you buy?

    edit: yeah ok so I looked up prices and 10mm is about as expensive - if not more than .223 brass ammo ...good God!

    .40 s&w isnt too bad - its sorta close to the price of 9mm. Is .40 s&w the same as .40"auto"?

    The FBI went with the 10mm, decided that it kicked too much....BOO HOO, and that it made the gun harder to handle for recruits with little hands.

    SO.......S&W created the 40 S&W, or as us 10mm lovers call it. The 40 Small and Weak. Its a good cartridge, but the 10mm is the shit.



    The Italians have a saying. "Keep your friends close and your enemies closer." And although they've never won a war or mass-produced a decent car, in this area they are correct.

    I guess if I didnt have my ar Id go for the 10mm but the site I looked up ammo for it was pretty crazy.

    Isnt the 10mm really close in size to the .40s&w?

    40 S&W is really a stumpy 10mm. All S&W did was take the underloaded 10mm the FBI was using and shorten the case to match the reduced charge. Kind of like a 38 special to a 357 mag.

    9mm is a far better defensive round than people give credit for. With modern JHP ammo from Federal, Corbon, Speer, and others, I have no problem with it and carry a 9mm sometimes. Its probably killed more people than any other round considering its widespread use.

    Moved to the ammuntion section since I didn't see any direct rifle references.

    Carry on.
