So here it is. Why is the 10mm so unpopular? Is it simply the price of the rounds? I know it’s not as cheap as a 9mm, .40 or .45 but it’s not THAT bad. Am I missing something that everyone else already knows?
Don't forget Kimber, Colt, and Springfield still have the 10mm in production.Janq said:I think it would be way more popular if somebody actually made guns for it beside Glock and high coin specialty makers such as the old Dan Wesson 1911s chambered in 10mm.

Ducman said:10mm has a lot of snap and is a long case. After the FBI decided against it, and the advent of the .40s&w, there was noone to run with the round
.357 Mag: 584 ft·lbf for 125 gr @ 1450 ft/s;
10 mm: 744 ft·lbf for 165 gr @ 1425 ft
Adler said:PD would back it. Hell they backed the 357mag and the 41mag revolver back in the day.
One of the old salts at my department carried a .44 magnum because they weren't allowed to carry .45 acp's that never made much sense to meThe Ghoul said:Back before libbies were in control. That is why most urban police are told they can't carry a .45. They don't want to shoot to kill, they want to shoot to imobilize. A friend of mine that is ex-SWAT told me that they are trained to use the minimal ammount of force to stop someone. But, often they have to use maximum force, otherwise people get hurt.
Not to mention that it over penetrates like a SOB.
