Time to buy a new 1911 and had my eye on a Kimber in 10mm.
But before I jump on the 10mm take a look at what I found on Cor-Bon's websight.
I don't really know if I would be getting all that much more.


10 MM AUT0 155 GR. DPX 1200 FPS 496 FTLBS
38 SPECIAL +P 110 GR. DPX 1250 FPS 382FTLBS
38 SUPER 125 GR. DPX 1350 FPS 506 FTLBS
357 MAG 125 GR. DPX 1300 FPS 469 FTLBS
357 SIG 125 GR. DPX 1250 FPS 382 FTLBS
400 CORBON 155 GR. DPX 1200 FPS 496 FTLBS
40 S&W 140 GR. DPX 1200 FPS 448 FTLBS
45 GAP 160 GR. DPX 1075 FPS 411 FTLBS
45 AUTO +P 185 GR. DPX 1075 FPS 475 FTLBS


What say you?

depends...what are you looking for?
ft/lb really does not translate to much (as a proportionallity), but imo, disregarding costs and availability, i'd pick a 10mm for mere power, range, velocity, and overall uses, i.e.: hunting, etc

PS: check out the loads from Double Tap Ammo

thier 10mm is rated for ~750 ft/lb and .45acp at ~650 ft/lb

Satisfaction. There is no reason to own a 10mm if not to abuse yourself.

I spotted a 10mm loading on there at 767 ft lbs.

I don't think that is really that unusual for 10mm.

But 650 for .45 is SCREAMING.

They list a 500+ ft lb load for 45 GAP, SCREAMING.

I'm not married, so I'll leave that to the less fortunate.

I was really worked up over the 10mm for a while, but it passed. I'll stick to the .45, I think. A 230 grain bullet at 1000 is good enough for anything I need in an auto.

What ruined me on the 10mm was the S&W 629. Where's the fun in sending a 180 grain bullet at 1300 when I can shoot one at 1600 in a factory load? Besides, a 250 grain bullet at a thousand fps is enough to keep me smiling, and I can go faster if need be.

If you need more than what hot 45 loads can deliver, you need a long gun.

And just exactly who in Hell says it abuses the gun????????

My Colt stainless Delta Elite hasn't broken, and I daresay it never will, even on a steady diet of Double Taps!

Anything the .45 +P can do, the 10mm can do a Hell of a lot better!

P.S.- It also beats the .38 Spl, .357 MAg, .40 S&W, .44 Spl, .357 Sig, .45ACP, .45 Colt, .45 GAP, and even treads the same halls as the mighty .41 Mag!!!

I've shot hundreds and hundreds of rounds through my glock with no problems at all (and hopefully it will be thousands and thousands soon). The kick to me is the same as .45 +p out of a kimber. The great thing about a 10mm glock is I can slap in my .40 s&w barrel and that's all I have to change to shoot .40 s&w. I used to have a glock .45 and on the model 20 and 21 you can swap the slides. They are essentially the same. Now if you get a ciener 22lr conversion kit what the heck else do you need?

I havent found a NEED for .45ACP +P or 10mm for that matter, other than when I was a professional bowling pin killer. All it does is increase wear, break parts and make the gun harder to control with some loads shooting at full speed.

What are you hoping to achieve?
Link Posted: 10/28/2006 12:30:54 PM EST
corbon pisses me off. they need to make a 230gr standard pressure load.

Go buy a .44 mag. You'll be happier in the long run, and its an excuse to buy a new gun.

Why? Then you would be left with a round that has no advantage at all, those flying ashtray bullets suck compared to modern bullet designs.

Exactly. Every time I feel the need to induce carpal tunnel, I fire off a box of WWB 240's at ~1200fps.

Then, I don't feel...anything in my right hand.

Generally speaking, for me, it's just not the same to shoot a revolver as an automatic.

ONE DAY I will have a magnum pistol!!
