Is it just me or does anyone else find the 10mm more accurate than other calibers? just curious, thanks If so, why would that be?

Me thinks it's just you. I shoot poorly with all calibers.:smoke23:

I'm thinking your groups should be within 1mm of 9mm groups....LOL

I bought a 10MM Witness Hunter and am using the 165 grain load in it. It's a longslide (6") and I've encountered the same thing. It continues to outperform any semiauto I've ever owned and I've owned a bunch. I thought it was just me or the handgun just liked the load. I originally thought it might just be the flatter trajectory. After paying closer attention I noticed my horizontal pattern had shrunk also. Part of your perception may be due to velocity. The load I'm using was chronographed at 1350 fps in a five inch Glock. From a six inch barrel the velocity should come up thirty to fifty fps. That moves dead on point of impact out quite a bit for any given sight pattern. What you may be seeing is just a flatter trajectory. If your right to left pattern is smaller with the ten we've had the same basic experience.

Hello "jaywalker"
I believe the 10mm is one of the finest, most accurate rounds you can get! The power and the speed of that little demon rippin' through the air is awesome! I roll my own and I love it!
I can blast the heck outta the middle of some paper at 25 yards through my Witness. I roll 45, 40, 357 (both) 38 and now getting some 9's in. But the 10mm is by far my most fav to roll!

I don't notice a difference close up (like 15 yards.) It is flatter shooting and noticeably better at longer ranges (30 to 50 yards.)

I have noticed a greater feeling of accomplishment and satisfaction after squeezing the trigger and punching the center out of targets with a 10mm. ;-)

I have no scientific basis to back it up, but subjectively 10mm just "feels" more accurate than anything else that I shoot. I think some of this is that it cuts cleaner holes in target paper, because my practice ammunition has a flattened tip. I only wish my extractor would be more consistent with where it throws my 10mm brass.

I am currently down to three 10mms. Having owned quite a few over the yrs, I have never found one that was not absurdly accurate out of the box. I have found much of the same to be true for the .357 Sig caliber pistols.

Yes, they do seem to be inherently accurate....kinda like the .357 mag.....a little better than they should be.

I shoot nice little groups with 10mm Black Talon ammo.But yet it is no smaller than the groups of my 9mm.

For me at 20 to25 yards the 10mm & my 45 are both good to go.:tumbleweed:

I have 2 Dan Wesson Pointman 7's... one in 45 and one in 10mm. No noticeable difference in the 10mm. Accuracy is excellent in both!

My thoughts EXACTLY. The ONLY thing that can match my 10mm is my 357sig!!
