Welcome to the forum.

I've never shot a 10mm. My 40's are snappy enough for me. But I do have a .44 mag that is fun to shoot, but I don't think I'd put 100 rounds down range with it. How's this compare to the 10mm?

Again, welcome to Kimber Talk.

Welcome to the forum from northern Illinois HiVel, the 10mm is one of the few calibers my collection lacks.

Gary, performance wise the 10mm is just a step down from the .41 mag.

10mm vs. 44 Mag is tough to compare-the 44 is really a revolver round that will curl your toes if you go heavy and load it up....the 10mm to me is a really all-around auto load that offers more variability in its bullets , but not as strong as those big revolver loads. Never will be.

I have a couple of 10mm S&W revolvers that shoot very well using various weights and loadings of bullets (lighter or heavier-they all seem to work depending on the job you have to do). The 6 1/4 inch Smith is VERY accurate. The Night Guard 10mm is a defense gun for me or a hunting back up . Both can handle 40 caliber without any changes .

A very versatile and useful round is the 10mm. I call it my "Goldilocks"
round.
Not to weak and not too strong-JUST RIGHT.
