  • The 10mm is superfluous.

    The .45acp could have been loaded to 10mm performance with less pressure.

    Higher pressure and velocity and the handgun would have been too hard to shoot well. Hard enough to shoot good as a .45.

      .45acp +P and .45 Super exist. This debate has gone on for a while, and unless you start throwing in barrel lengths, length of engagement, and BC there is a lot of overlap. That doesn't necessarily mean superfluous.

      I would rather see the 9mm go away than the 10mm Auto. Reasoning: most guys can handle the 10mm with practice and by extension the .40s&w. It's more powerful than the 9mm. However, smaller guys and most women will actually avoid the 9mm as they believe it is too much recoil so they go with .380. If there's going to be a jump/gap. I would rather see it be to something beyond that cutoff.
