Well I know a lot of folks like drama but both rounds are similiar CUP pressure with the 10mm being a bit higher.

So it's not likely you're gonna get some catastrophic failure that causes the pistol to blow-up like a pipe-bomb by using a shorter lower pressure round.

At most you'll damage the extractor, or the round will slip past the extractor and fail to fire.
