Lets hear about the Olympic arms 10mm upper

Howdy!

Was curious about this... I figured by now with as many people running the 10mm oly uppers, someone would have loaded up some full power loads & chronoed these through the 16" bbl. I'm thinking about getting one of these for deer hunting. The last couple of deer I shot woke me up to the reality of bigger holes being preferable to smaller ones regardless of velocity. Though velocity helps, I'm talking specifically about having taken a doe with the 10mm a few years back & then having taken a buck with the 6.5 grendel last year. The trauma from the 10 appeared to be greater than the 6.5. Now from a practical standpoint, making a precise shot with a pistol limits the range a bit. I'm wondering if one of these 10mm uppers would be just the ticket for shots within 200y? All comments would be appreciated!

Hey Kegs, its been awhile.
I was about to purchase an OLY 10mm gun but things just didn't work out. Some have reported their were running well even with the new OLY magazines.

I haven't gotten in to the OLY 10mm chamber details with anyone yet. The MagTech chamber was a little ify, from the reports I read with higher impulse ammo!

I hope so one can shed some good news on your questions soon...
