Maybe it would help to just admit the 10mm is not a magnum revolver cartridge and quit trying to load it like one. (shaking head in disbelief)

1. Most (90% or more) factory loads (and most published handload recipes, in fact) only mimic .40SW ballistics. What's the point of all that case capacity if you see no benefit?

2. The 10mm is RIGHT on the edge of being a significant hunting caliber with the other magnums but unless you load closer to 37,500psi, it's only a service caliber.

I'm not condoning the OP or thread necessarily; just observing. Most of us don't want to load over pressure. Being over book doesn't necessarily mean over pressure. YMMV.
