    The irresistible combination of 1911 and 10mm

    I have four 1911's in 10mm
    Ruger with adjustable sights, Ruger Night Watchman, Kimber TLE, Delta Elite.
    Rugers and Kimber have ramped barrel, Delta doesn't.
    8 rounds in flush fitting mag, 9 rounds in Wilson with base pad (not pictured).

    No, 10mm is not likely found at the local mart, but easy to get online or handload
    My two main loads, both handloads (new brass) - 5 shot averages from 5'' barrel:
    10mm Handload 180 Nosler @ 1,228 fps / 603# KE
    10mm Handload Nosler 150 JHP @ 1,402 fps / 655# KE

    Underwood offers the same bullets:

    https://www.underwoodammo.com/collec...=7865916391481

    All four of my 10mm 1911's have a FLGR (full length guide rod); I know, it may get me killed according to those that dislike it.

    "10mm over penetrates" is an incorrect generalization, lets go ahead and disprove it now.
    Underwood 180 Gold Dot advertised @ 1,300 fps penetrate 12-16'' which is in the desirable range.


    I carry a 1911 and prefer 10mm versions because of an extra round in the mag and increased KE.
    I'm not inclined to disarm for a concert, game, (entertainment) and I ain't going on a plane or cruise.

    Nice collection CDW4ME.

    I have a Glock 20SF, and would really like to have a 1911 in 10mm. One of these days it'll happen.

    Thanks for the video link.

    This is one of those threads I should probably avoid.



    It's muffled because I'm sitting down...

    But I can hear my wallet screaming in the anticipation of pain!!!

    Yummy four 10mms CDW4ME!

    LimaCharlie's 10mms are inspiring too, including that revolver!

    10mm is a truly rewarding way to do 1911 guns. The 1911 gun does 10mm so elegantly. Only one lives here. I fully expected to like it when I got it, but not to the extent that I have learned to like it. The 10mm won't supplant the good ol .45 ACP in my mind, but it sure does complement it nicely.

    The 10mm here is Defensive Carry Forum's fault and y'all know who you are!




    I have all-night gun show security to do this weekend. I carried the Delta Elite at the show two weeks ago and was all fired up to tote a revolver this time. Now I'll probably pack the 10mm again after reading this thread.

    AA #9 and a 180 gr XTP is a good combo for the 10mm. I got it to around 1300 fps with .2 gr to spare per Hornady. I havent shot any bears with a 10mm yet but i did hit a chipmunk once.

    A 9MM MAY expand to .45 but a 45ACP will never shrink to 9MM.

    Out of curiosity, have you noticed any reliability deltas between the 1911's with the ramped barrels and the 1911's without the ramped barrels?

    10mm will be my next gun. Probably in 1911 form. That Ruger seems like a heck of a deal.

    The Delta has been 100% reliable through about 400-500 rounds of various HP - I don't load 10mm FMJ.
    Delta came with a dual recoil spring and plastic (Colt probably calls it polymer, derlin whatever) short guide rod.
    Me being a bit proactive (OCD whatever) searched and could not find a replacement for that factory recoil assembly.
    It bugged me having a wear item that I could not find a replacement for, so I installed a FLGR and single 23# recoil spring.
    First 200 rounds or so was with the original recoil assembly, next 200 rounds or so with the FLGR / 23# works great either way.

    Not a 1911, but I also have a Glock 20SF

    Iím in the back seat with Kerberos. I donít think I should be here. We have a Parker Arms 10 that floats around my family but Iím the 2nd to most recent owner. Since the day that I stumbled into the LGS and they had a DW Bruin, Iíve had a hankerin that fades a bit and then comes back strong. Itís been back and strong just lately and this doesnít help. I like my Dan Wessonís quite a lot.

    I only have one 1911 in 10mm. I do love the round. Maybe I should get one more.
