Mr. Ayoob,

Do you see any practical justification to move from a .40 S&W to a 10mm?

I have read your work and watched your videos for years. Thanks for taking the time to be on Glocktalk.

Depends on the shooter's needs, Eagle.

If my profile of needs indicated likelihood of long shots, I'd definitely go with a higher velocity 10mm.

If I was woodswalking in bear country (as opposed to, say, dirtbag country), I would definitely prefer a 10mm, using a deep-driving hunting load.

For all around use, the higher capacity vis-a-vis grip girth, the readier availability of ammunition, the lower cost of ammunition, and the greater controllability of .40 S&W compared to full power 10mm Auto would find me preferring the .40.
