Is it possible to fire 10mm through a .45 ACP suppressor without damaging the can, or are the pressures too high?

I suppose it or anything of this nature would be possible but...I have no technical data to support my opinion on this but, I think the pressure of a full house 10mm round would be too much for a .45 ACP rated can not to mention that I don't think it would be very quiet.

I've read that some .40 S&W can mfgs. don't recommend shooting 10mm thru their cans.

I'm sure someone will chime in that knows more about this than I do.

Well that would be strange since both rounds share the same SAAMI pressure ceiling levels.

Here is one link that states AAC will not warranty the Evo-40 with 10mm ammo.

There are other links included within that one that indicate people have done it but again, AAC will not warranty their Evo-40. I wouldn't do it with mine and take the chance of screwing up a $795.00 can.

Maybe this has changed?

What about the original question: how would firing 10mm through a .45 ACP suppressor affect its durability/service life/warranty?

Thanks for the reply. Then I won't buy that extended 6" barrel for my G20.

I have a box of factory subsonic 10mm but I can't see how it would be any different than a underpowered 45.

Not exactly:

The FBI's 10mm Pistol from the Law Enforcement Bulletin November 1989

Anyway, I do not put 10mm through a 45, but I am building a Glock 20 to put through a 40S&W can using FBI-Lite ammo (180gr@950fps).

anything is "possible"....now what is recommended is another thing.

To do this with absolute peace of mind I'd go with a quicksilver titanium suppressor. Don't think you'll have any problems then

Hmm, I may have to consider the same thing now...
