Good Luck, I have had a 10MM conversion barrel on backorder for going on 2 months at Glockmeister they have none for the G21 or the G30. I couldnt fine anyone with them, but I can wait!

May be a noob question but why 10mm over other calibers to hunt with?

When he dropped that big buck right in his tracks! Wow! 10mm baby. And I like that he looks at handgun hunting with a Glock like bow hunting. Same principles. You have to have a close shot , be stealthy and be ethical..

The G20 with the six inch barrel does nice work on Monterey County wild pigs, too. Great sausage, let me tell you.

I imagine shot placement isn't so critical when punching .45+" holes in nutria!

Gotta love the extended barrels they use, which make all the difference in .45 ballistics. I have a 6.6" SS LWD barrel and a #24 spring that I put in one of my G21SF's when I head out into bear country. Those 255 gr. Buffalo Bore hard-cast lead flatnoses don't slow down for much.

May be a noob question but why 10mm over other calibers to hunt with?

Because hot 10mm rounds have about twice the power (energy) of a decent 9mm round. Here are some ESTIMATES of power figures for hot loaded ammunition in the big three calibers vs. 10mm:

9mm: 400-450ft-lbs of energy at the muzzle
.40S&W: 425-500ft-lbs
.45ACP: 425-500ft-lbs
10mm: 700-800ft-lbs

I KNOW that there might be some 9mm, .40S&W, or .45ACP load out there that beats those numbers, but they are just general ranges that should encompass 99% of defensive "hot" loads.

Just yesterday I went and chronographed a bunch of 10mm rounds. This is out of my G29, so add another 75-100fps for a full-size G20 (or add about 150fps to get an idea of what that guy was using in the video). I fired a 165gr Gold Dot at 1426fps (745ft-lbs), and a 135gr Nosler JHP at 1626fps (792ft-lbs). The guy in that video was using a G20 with a 6" barrel. Those two loads I mentioned would be making 825ft-lbs and 866ft-lbs respectively out of a STOCK G20 w/ 4.6" barrel. I imagine they would be over 900ft-lbs out of a 6" barrel. That's nearly double the energy of a 9mm, .40S&W, or .45ACP. But, obviously, the .45ACP held it's own. The guy used one in the video.

Most 10mm hunters tend to use either hardcast lead bullets of about 200gr at 1250-1300fps, or 180-200gr Hornady XTPs at 1400 or 1300fps. Those are some serious pistol loads, especially for an auto. That kills .357Magnum, and approaches the lower end of .41Magnum.

OP, AWESOME video, BTW. I'm going to post a link in the 10 Ring. I hope you don't mind.

As was said above...

A standard 9mm has a muzzle energy of about 300 to 350 Ft. Lbs.
A standard .40S&W or .45ACP has a muzzle energy of about 400 to 450 Ft. Lbs.
A standard "Full Power" 10mm has a muzzle energy of about 550 to 650 Ft. Lbs. but the real reason is that at the 100 yard mark the 10mm still delivers around 500 Ft. Lbs. of energy. Even better is "Nuclear Power" or "Hot" 10mm loads have any where from 700 to as much as 850 Ft. Lbs. of energy at the muzzle. Couple that power with a Glock 20 in 10mm and you have a service sized side arm loaded with 15 rounds or 17 rounds in the magazine. It is hard to beat.

Can a 45acp+P in a 6 inch G21 barrel reap any benefits ?

Who could make a 8inch G20 barrel?

Yeah, you'll always get more velocity out of a longer barrel. More velocity equals more energy, which will almost always be better (as long as you don't grossly over-drive a bullet's design). A 6" .45ACP barrel would probably gain about 100fps (+/- 30fps) over the 4.6" barrel of a stock G21. The longer the barrel, the more time the bullet is in the barrel, and the longer the expanding gasses from the gunpowder have to do work on the bullet. All of that equals more velocity. If you're hunting with a pistol, conceal-ability concerns go out the window, and a 6" barrel is a great idea. The +P loads will be a little bit faster than the standard .45ACP, so that will help some, too.

I'm sure Bar-Sto or someone COULD make a custom 8" G20 barrel. It would likely be expensive and could cause cycling issues. You would get some SERIOUS velocity from an 8" 10mm barrel, though. Lone Wolf makes a threaded 6.6" barrel for the G20, I think.

Or lets just recant that a little and say a man who is acting foolish...to be specific.

Especially since we have discussed your history of your shooting wimpy cartridges through it over on the 10 ring.

Dude, don't fire store bought .40 level ammo through a 10mm and call it overrated, that is just foolish.

There really isn't a better compact semi-auto pistol round than the 10mm - at least in terms of versatility."

While I will admit there are better calibers to hunt with, I have taken many pigs with my Glock 20. I carry it while hunting with catch dogs and it is great. It carries light, holds a good charge of ammo, and is more than powerful enough for what I am doing. I have carried Ruger single actions and S&W double actions, but I always go back to the 20. I would say is worked well for how those boys were hunting as well. Every situation is different and each hunter should use what they see fits best.

There ARE better calibers for hunting, but there are NOT any better AUTOMATIC calibers for hunting. The 10mm is great for SD/HD/hunting/range fun/whatever. If it involves shooting, the 10mm can almost certainly handle it.

Some people apparently think that only .500S&W Magnums are worthy of hunting use. Let's just go deer hunting with a Barrett .50BMG, also.

What are you thinking, 20 deer side by side?:rofl::rofl:

What people conveniently forget is that Native Americans were hunting with arrows made of flint not to long ago. I am a firm believer in handgun hunting and know that it is effective as long as you practice and are patient. The 10mm with full loads is probably the best auto caliber for the purpose of hunting game. But to each his own I guess.

I guess I should have used an emoticon. It was a joke. I was poking fun at another member here that thinks 10mm is not capable of hunting. Every time 10mm is mentioned, he starts talking about his .500S&W.

I know you were joking. I just want to know how many deer a 50 BMG would go through before stopping.

On the subject of bigger calibers, there has always been a bigger and better caliber to hunt/protect with. But no matter the size and speed of a cartridge, nothing will supplant practice and patience. No matter what happens I will always have a .308, .44, 9mm, and .22. Those are not the only calibers I own but they are what I am best with and will always fall back on. Now if I ever go bear hunting in Alaska I might have to add something to my fall back calibers.:whistling:

When his .500 get sold, it'll probably be, like most others that are sold on the used market!

If you could find a 9mm bullet to hold together at hot 9x25Dillon velocities, I bet it would be pretty good. I still think the 10mm would have the edge for hunting just because of the heavier and larger bullets, but the Dillon would be a good auto pistol choice, too.

Let's see, you start with a 10MM case, then neck it down, to accommodate, a lighter, smaller diameter bullet, that's screaming, right? Personally, I'll take a heavier, more than fast enough bullet, to go through and through for hunting whitetail. With the proper .40 bullet, there is no concern of whether the bullet will stay together either.

Have you seen the YouTube video of the guy taking down the hog with his G20? He was using a CorBon 135gr load. It's a Sierra 135gr JHP rated at 1400fps, and it dropped the hog QUICK. Imagine that bullet at 1700fps (I pushed some 135gr Nosler JHPs to a 10-shot average of 1734fps the other day). It would be nasty.

I don't know, there were a few on the 10 mm where you saw the bullet go right through, you could see it hit behind. I don't see the "clear" win for the 10 mm. I still see shot placement as the "win". Even with high power rifles and arrows, game still has to be tracked sometimes.

I would not. However back during the great depression...the 1930s one, my grandfather routinely killed deer with a .22lr.

Would a 45 kill a deer? Yes. Would I use it? No. Truth is I mostly use my bow nowdays.

If I were hungry enough I would hunt with anything I could get my hands on. If the American Indians were able to hunt successfully with little flint arrowheads I think a .45 or 10mm would be a better choice.

I took my Glock 20 with the (Glock) six inch hunting barrel deer hunting for two years with Cor-Bon 180 grain bonded soft points. First year, nada. Second year - I was at table top mountain in Arizona with a buch of (well, lets call them unenlightened) people. I kept getting harrassed about "handgun" hunting, even though you CAN'T find a handgun with more rounds that has the same energy level of the 10mm. So, long story short, I'm slinking around the hills looking at the south end of a North bound buck. Keeps messing with me, letting me get within about 150 yards. I told myself I WOULD NOT shoot anything further than 100 yards with the Glock. Last day of the season, I kid you not - same buck walked within 50 yards of camp as I'm getting dressed for hunting - I KNOW it was him tasking me. Same game, I stalk, he moves. Finally, I give up and start packing it all in, drive down the mountain (focus on driving as I will fall off the mountain and kill myself). So, I come around the mountain onto (finally) flat dirt (no road) and can breath again when, this buck runs over from somewhere and stops about 20 yards in front of my truck. Needless to say, out comes the Glock, (get out of truck first) ease it out, get a bead on his front chest and BAM! Some other gun with a rifle has shot him. Guy says he never saw my truck or me taking a bead on him. Maybe. Anyway, bet you thought I was going to end up shooting that buck didn't you? True story. If it wasn't, I would have ended up shooting that buck with the 10mm. Oh well, there's always pig season. :crying:

KKM makes a conversion barrel for your 21 slide. All else that is needed is a G20 mag, and 10 MM ammo, to be up and running with a 10.

The 10mm will take down a whitetail at distance easy. I put down A huge doe at about 40 yards with my G20 loaded with 180 grain Buffalo Bore gold dots! With that load that gun is an absolute sledgehammer!! I wish I wouldn't have sold mine. I will get another one day!

What 45 ammo did that guy use to put down the second to last deer? It stopped it stone cold!

What's the explanation of longer barrel, higher velocity? Thanks for the vid, makes me proud to own a G21SF...now I need a G20SF. Hahaha.

i think in most places 6" is the minimum barrel length to legally hunt

Nice grouping. You're a better shot than I am.

I still stand by that, IMHO the 10mm is Highly Overrated.
You must value my opinion to bring up my old posts.





My neighibor has an annoying dog that barks to damn much, I don't value his bark, but I do point out that it is annoying from time to time.:whistling:

To the poster who stated 6 inch barrels for most states... I do believe it is 5 inches, not 6.

In Ohio the rules state 5 inch barrel, so as to allow a full sized 1911 in .45 ACP.

Seeing as most states allow the use of the .45 ACP to harvest deer... it stands to reason that most of the states that allow .45 ACP to hunt deer will allow a 5 inch barrel because the 1911 is the most popular platform for the .45 ACP. Then again, out side of Ohio, this is just a guess. I would like for other members to sound off so we might know for sure.

Great videos. While I was there I watched a girl pig hunting with a Taurus 40S&W caliber. 12 shots she hit him with and he was down but still moving. I think I'd be switching to a 10mm or 45 real quick.

I would not. However back during the great depression...the 1930s one, my grandfather routinely killed deer with a .22lr.

Would a 45 kill a deer? Yes. Would I use it? No. Truth is I mostly use my bow nowdays.

I think if you're using a bow for hunting deer, you should be okay with using a .45 acp. :faint:

Ohio opening day, is always the Monday after Thanksgiving. Can't use a firearm till then. Hopefully, this year isn't like last year. Rained for three days straight. Too old to hunt soaking wet!:crying:

I'd love it a lot more if it came with at least a 5" barrel. Had to buy the LW tactical length to achieve the 5" minimum requirement for here in Ohio :upeyes:

As a police officer in New England I've shot several deer with my duty sidearm. First a Beretta 92f and currently a G19. I have also seen sevaral other deer shot with the same weapons. The loads used were Winchester Black Talon 147gr and Winchester Ranger 127gr +P+. In all cases the deer died quick enough to call it effective. As some mentioned, tatics were used to get as close as possible, usually 25 yards on average before taking the shot. Deer are not tough skinned animals.

One of the deer's I shot with the 147gr load ran out of a backyard, across the street into another backyard where it expired. The round entered broadside and passed through the lower part of the heart.

These were all humane kills where the deer had been injured beyond repair but still able to hobble around with broken bones, infection, etc.

I have a friend who lives in Tennessee. He hunts with a 10mm. His BBQ is always full. My point being: A 10mm is plenty enough for hunting deer.
