Well gang, I think we have covered the 9mm pretty good. So lets take it up a notch.What are you carrying in your 10mm? Or how about what you got stoked in your .45? I think the .45 will out number the 10mm.......or maybe the .40 S&W will . Your thoughts ......

In my limited knowledge of handgun calibers, I like the 40 cal. I carry a SW40VE and love it. Although, accuracy seems to be just below great.
I have had great aim under 20 ft. at the range, but any longer than that and it really takes a dive. Most could be contributed to user error and barrel length.

I like my HK USP .40. Seems to handle all kinds of weight grn and loads. typically I carry hdroshocks or Gold dots. in the 180 or 165 grn. I don't notice much POI/POA diffrence between the loads.

.40 I carry Corbon Pow'rBall. And also Federal Hydroshocks. I don't remember the weight. The powrballs are kinda light and the HSs are a little heavier (heavier choice in the store when I bought them)

In my .40 S&W's I carry Speer 165 grain Gold Dot JHPs....it's what my agency issues.

In 10mm, I currently carry Double Tap Ammo's 165 grain Golden Saber JHP....it's accurate, plenty controllable and fast!

In .45 ACP, I currently carry a standard velocity Remington 230 grain JHP only because I find it easily enough at Wally World and shoot lots of it.

Intresting so far..I have noticed that the .45 and .40 S&W are running just about even. There's a few 10mm and shame on me , i forgot to list mine.
Glock 29 10mm- 175 gn Win. STHP.

Ruger-97 .45 - 200gn GDHP+p

I did'nt know that Cor-bon made the Powerball in 10mm I might have to give that one a try.

I love it. Great shooting, very controllable, and very accurate. The only down side is not many places carry ammo for it. So have to buy over the internet. Or this might just get me into reloading. If you ever get up to Southwest Missouri let me know and you are more then welcome to try it out.
