10mm in 220-230 grain hardcast is very good for bear defense, and Denmark's Sirius sled patrol issues the Glock g20 in 10mm for defense against polar bears. Alaska State Police, and their Wildlife Troopers, are issued 40cal Glocks with the option of 10mm Glocks. They discontinued issuing 357 magnums some time in the last 10-15 years.

Of the people who've used handguns to survive brown bear and polar bear attacks, ALL of them have kept firing until the bear ceased its attack- just like with defense against humans. Empty the cylinder or magazine if needed! Once a bear is on you, logic would say a handgun is much easier to wield than a long gun. I'm sure no bear attack survivors would ever say they wish they'd have had fewer rounds of capacity in their handgun.

220gr 10mm Sectional Density= .203
230gr 10mm------------------> = .212

180gr 357mag (9.1mm)------>= .200
190gr 357mag (9.1mm)------>= .211
(I didn't list the SD of 200gr weight because the rounds won't fit the cylinder length of an S&W revolver)

Not Swedish.

Danish Sirius patrols on Greenland.

And they’re a backup to their M1917 .30-06 rifles
