I cannot believe how easy it was to find ammo for the 10mm!!! Plenty of .40,shit tons of 10mm and equal amounts of 10mm Mag.
This is my haul to date,took a week and I still have 560 rounds coming from Double Tap in the next few days!!!
Thats 1'740 rounds with no waiting!! And it's good quality ammo!!
Damn I'm glad I had a hankering for the 10mm S&W!!! What a pleasant surprise!
Total price of around a $1'200 hundred bucks!

You have enough there to build an ammo fort. Or you could pour it all in the bathtub and lounge in it.

I always wondered what they did with all that ammo they bought up. But it's the government, so nobody should be surprised. I once saw back in 1973 a building at Ft. Benning, GA that was packed full of brand new musical equipment: Drum sets, guitar and bass amplifiers, stacks of Fender and Gibson guitars in the cases, PA equipment, big Hammond B3 organs with the Leslie speakers...

No idea why they bought all that and why they had it stored there. Some of the guitars they had would be worth thousands of dollars today.

Oh I get plenty exercise. I'm not confined to a rubber room and a straight jacket 23 or 24 hrs like you are.
I'm sure he gets plenty of exercise....by repeatedly ramming his noggin into the padded door while screaming for his Mommy and some Skittles.
That boy just ain't right in the head. He and Quasar are what give libs the argument for "red flag laws" Not that I agree with any antigun legislation but they are the "ammo". Both admitted nuts in several public posts?
Who boy? What? Nuts? Walnuts, pecans, peanuts, cashews, Brazil nuts, hazelnuts? Really? It's that season again, isn't it? What's the matter? Can't stomach grandma's fruitcake for Christmas?

At least I'm not a wicked medical doctor who violated the Hippocratic Oath to do his patients such grievous harm and injustice, or a corrupt police officer who violated his oath to uphold the Constitution of the United States -- including the 2nd Amendment -- as the supreme law of the land without any religious test as qualification for office.

They probably traded off the ammo for hammers or toilet seats. 20000 rounds per toilet seat.

Maybe it's a bit easier to fire than a 44 mag. That thing set me back 3 or 4 steps and my ears rang for a week because I didn't use ear protection. Like firing a hand held cannon.
It's damn near impossible to find ballistic info on the 10mm Mag.
The case length on the 10mm Mag is 1.250 vs the .44 at 1.285.
The diameter for the 10mm mag is.400 vs the .44 at .428 so they're actually pretty close.
Dont have a .44 mag but it sure would be cool to test the two against each other.
Obviously the .44 should be a tad more powerful.
From what I could find, the Underwood 10mm ammo comes in a bullet weight of 135-200 grain, and averages 1250-1600 fps, depending on the bullet. I don't know which one you got, but the The DoubleTap 10mm comes in 165-230 gr with a velocity of 1040-1400 fps.

The 10mm Magnum with a 200 grain bullet runs about 1450 fps, which would have 934 ft/lbs of energy, and a power factor of 290. To put that in perspective, I just loaded up 100 rounds of .44 magnum. I used a Hornady 240 grain XTP jacketed hollow-point behind 19.6 gr. of Alliant 2400, WLP primers, and Remington-Peters cases. Those were chronographed at 1332 fps, with 946 ft lbs. or energy, and a power factor of 302.

I didn't load those to the maximum allowable velocity, which would be 1500 fps but still, they're pretty stiff. So the 10mm magnum is pretty darned close to the .44 magnum.

In 10mm Mag I have 400 rounds of the 230 grain hardcast coming from Double Tap.
Already received 400 rounds of their 200 grain hollow points and 400 rounds of their 155 grain. And some DRT in 105 grain terminal shock at 1540 fps.

As far as the Underwood stuff in 10mm I have the 165 grain bonded JHP at 1400 fps.
And 150 grain extreme hunter at 1425 fps.
And some 140 grain xtreme penetrator 1500 fps.

Man I cannot wait to shoot this thing!!!!
Cracks me up!! On several pistol message boards you have guys claiming the 10mm mag isnt as powerful as the .41 mag!!
When as you posted they actually give the .44 a run for their money.

Just recieved my new spare cylinder for the S&W 610.
Got the last one MGS had!!
It made checking out my new holster possible while the other cylinder is out being reamed for the 10mm Magnum.
Love this thing!!! You cant even tell you have a 3lb pistol on your chest!! It doesnt get in your way at all!!! You can drive the SxS,fish and generally walk around and you dont even notice it!!

Of course this isnt meant to be a concealed rig.
It's for when you're out in the boonies.
The draw is effortless!!!.
Still needs some adjustments but It's a great Holster.

Not sure about a high end one. I was using two of those Canadian-made Shooting Chrony that I got at some garage sales. But there was so much discrepancy between them I wasn't sure which one was right. So I got one of those cheap $80 Caldwell Ballistic Precision chronos and it works pretty well. You can connect it to your smart phone and run an app that logs all the data. But there are some much better ones out there if you have the bucks to spend.

I saw the Caldwells. They looked pretty good overall.
I dont mind spending a couple 100 bucks on one if it truly makes a difference.

You can get a much better one than the Caldwell for a couple hundred.
