The round may not be completely dead yet. I own a Glock 20 that is an amazing firearm. But I have to admidt, is it is a bit "snappy" to shoot".
I couldn't agree more :!:DHart said:I'd say the cartridge is far from dead. In fact it's popularity looks to be growing.
I'll second thatDHart said:And I hope that S&W chambers an M&P in 10mm because I'd buy one in a heartbeat!
These numbers are all for double tap's loads:ClosetCaseNerd said:How does 10mm compared to .45ACP and .45ACP + P rounds?

This is why the fans of 10's are fans, broad range of bullet weights and can be loaded hotter than most other pistol rounds and you get the better capacity then the 45.
ClosetCaseNerd said:Ronin dude....the M&P comes with and without the magazine safety. Why do you have such an issue with options?
I mean you have a choice, that means their must be something sub-optimal about one of them.
I know this may sound odd since I own 4 M&P 40s, but I have always hated the recoil of the 40. I think it is too snappy, that was until I shot my first M&P but I digress. I love the recoil of the 10mm, it feels like a hot 45. I have always felt the 45 had more roll or push than snap and the 10 has that same roll or push.ClosetCaseNerd said:Thanks for the numbers Dan. Can you give some insight as to how it feels on the shooters end? Recoil wise? I imagine a cross between .40S&W and .45ACP? .357mag? Maybe this is too hard a question to verbalize an answer to. Wish more ranges had 10mm to rent, then maybe people could get some appreciation for the round.
