This is an interesting video. I might have to buy some of this Buffalo Bore .40 ammo haha.

why do people think you can swap out a barrel and shoot it? you cannot unless you swapout the slide.

I am talking .45acp to 10mm
10mm base dia .426 in (10.81 mm)
.45acp base dia .476 in (12.1 mm)
close but I wouldn't do it. btw the 10mm and .40 is same specs other than lenght

I was only focused on the .40 caliber load that delivers 10mm ballistics more or less. And they do make conversion barrels where you just swap the barrel and not the slide for .45 to 10mm.

hey jimmy, I was not directing my post to you, I was just making a statement, the problem is not the barrel it is the breech and the extractor to line up the primer, the breech on a .45 is to large to support a 10mm/40

I know that the 10mm and .40 are the same diameter, but that extra length means more powder so to get the same speed out of a .40 cartridge is pretty amazing.

Double tap is nice, but I prefer Underwood Ammo as my carry stuff, they push the heavier loads at higher fps

Sorry, but he's wrong. That's some pretty hot, (and damn expensive), .40 S&W but nowhere near the power of full-power 10mm. He's just using the wrong ammo.

Of course, savvy 10mm owners buy Underwood Ammo. ;) Underwood's not only cheaper than that Cor-Bon and Hornady stuff he showed, but it's a lot more powerful as well. Full-power 10mm is 180gr @ 1300fps, or 135gr @ 1600fps, and those are just 2 of Underwood's 10mm loadings.

yes, the 10mm is really a 40 magnum.
10mm Auto was developed first, and spawned the .40 S&W, (or 10mm Short ;) ), the .357 Sig, and the 9x25 Dillon.

This guy is an idiot. The long "handle" on the G20 is nice though. I don't think that's why it "hangs in the belt, if you want to carry holsterless". Those 10mm rounds sure do have a lot of "fips". :rolleyes:

That Buffalo Bore +P is insane. 180gr bullets in a .40 are, potentially, dangerous enough on their own. Putting more powder in them makes it crazy.

The 155gr might be ok, but I wouldn't touch the 180s.

I wouldn't touch the 180s either haha, but the 155 gr. seems ok. I wouldn't go shooting it everyday in my Glock, but for self defense, that is some nasty ammunition.

I carry the 165gr gold dolt 10mm pushing 1400 fps and the stuff is awesome and very accurate.

In 10mm, I would much rather have the 180 or 200gr. It's only in .40 that the 180s are too big. There's no room for error in loading. The 10mm case has the space to handle it.
