Is it the most shilled meme chambering of all time?

>inferior for self defense as we already know that neither capacity or power actually matters here
>inferior for sport shooting, being generally significantly more expensive than 9mm and with much inferior availability in guns and ammo, and not offering additional performance over the 45 for silhouette shooting
>can't be found in subcompacts in the way 9mm or 380 can
>40 caliber has a much poorer variety of bullets than 9mm or 45 for the handloader
>inferior to 45 from a bullet weight and suppression perspective, significantly higher blast/concussion due to high pressure. Most factory loads are supersonic 180gr
>handgun hunting? They make revolvers and single shots just for that, not to mention the 45 you already have will drop your local whitetail just fine, and it can easily be uploaded to 45 +P or Super which negates all the power benefits of 10mm
I love powerful hand cannons as much as the next guy, but I just can't see a reason to buy into this meme. Is the failure of 10mm just an extension of the failure of 40 S&W? Are all 10mm fanatics just secretly salty that their beloved 40 S&W was revealed to be a woman's chambering and will grasp at anything to cope with it?

    What? 10mm gays view .40 S&W with disdain, you might view the two rounds as the same thing but they sure dont.

    some company sent me a box of 10mm instead of 357 and it was a 180 grain bullet at 1300 fps. seems like its probably fine to shoot out of a big metal frame gun like a tanfoglio

    the real problem with 10mm is that there aren't any cool guns that shoot it. it's not cool. a revolver is cool, a glock isn't. i don't care that it's a more effective weapon for shooting bears or whatever i already have a revolver

      So 10mm is bad because it's too big for homosexual manlet guns?

      >10mm is an outdoorsman's round.
      Ehh that's only because of politically correct advertising in the gun industry. Both 357mag and 10mm were designed as law enforcement rounds for shooting cracked out giga homies through automobiles and primitive body armor. I think 44mag was actually designed as a hunting round first and foremost.

        22 would be a perfectly fine self defense cartridge if it was centerfire and didn't have the rimfire reliability issues

          This
          10mm being more powerful than .22 doesn't matter because they impart the same impact on a person, but also 10mm isn't powerful enough for bears, you need to use at least a .44 magnum for them to have enough power.

            Any pistol is fine as long as you hit the bear. I’d feel better with 10mm than 9mm and better with a .44 than 10mm, but there’s literally dozens of documented successful uses of 9mm against bear attacks. More importantly you don’t see failures of it

      G20 fits 16 rounds in a smaller size as I'd fit 5-7 of an equivalent powered revolver. It is easier to fit a light on and holster options are significantly more "modern." I own both a G20 and a Smith 629 and carry one of them every day as I live off grid in grizzly bear territory. Even with my personal preference for revolvers, I find myself gravitating more towards the G20.

      G29 is closer to the G19 in size. There really isn't anything substantially smaller than a G19 available in 10mm and there is (as far as I've found) nothing that is single stack and compact.

    Other way around. 10mm was a failing cartridge until it was adopted by the FBI, which breathed a little life into it until they realized none of them could shoot it for shit. In response, they downgraded the round to .40 S&W.
    These two things are what single-handedly killed .41 AE, a round that would have been far more versatile with its rebated rim allowing people to easily convert 9mm handguns to .41 with a simple barrel swap. But no, we have .40, and it's being used by the feds and LEO so why bother with this actually innovative design?
    Frick 10mm, .40, and the FBI, I do not forgive them and never will until the blessed .41 AE returns to us.

    10mm is fine. I don't even like it but I wouldn't begrudge someone who did.
    On another note, Doubletap ammo sucks shit. I bought some 200gr .357 and I was shooting it out of my Model 27 and I couldn't get through 1 full cylinder without the bullets creeping forward enough to bind my cylinder. If you're gonna make pissin hot .357, at least have the courtesy to crimp the fricking bullets.

        Under recoil bullets can pull themselves out of the case a little. Usually this requires heavy recoil and a heavy bullet, I would not think an NFrame in 357 would do it.

    One cool thing I did with my 10mm was drop a 6 inch 9x25 Dillon barrel in it. The velocity and energy you get from those 9mm bullets is nuts. Muzzle flash can be a bit much though especially when running lighter high velocity ammo. I feel the 9x25 Dillon is held back by the pistol platform and would really shine in a carbine platform with a bit more barrel to work with. So what I'm saying is the 10mm is better as a 9mm than a 10mm.
