Back to the original topic, the real question is why would you consider light round that stings like a giant bee over any of the other commonly used SD rounds?
As someone already mentioned, the 327 mag round has been trying to justify it's existence since it came out. Can it be effective for home defense? Sure. But if you are going to use a gun to protect yourself you might as well go bigger for a nightstand gun. Sometimes bigger really is better. Especially if you can shoot the heavier, larger, rounds just as well as the lighter ones.
The 10mm is the better of the two options.
I'd go with the 10mm for home defense/self defense. No particular reason other than I think the 10mm will take someone out a lot better which in itself is reason enough.

10 MM More firepower 10 MM more Horsepower....give yourself the edge.
If you don't run a shotgun for home defense, and you can handle a 10, then a 10 is probably pretty tough to beat.
It's a lot easier to get a suppressor for the 10mm. That would solve the problem.
Try not to screw up so bad they name the screw up after you. (Station 15 saying)
