Re: 45acp Or 10mm

Check out this link for the WildWest Rowland .45
Real Guns <--- this is the link... Click on it

Apparently they do offer a version that does not use compensators.

But also pay particular attention to the velocities
of the 180 and 200gr 45 super bullets... The identical same
velocities as full power 10mm ammo for the same weight bullet.

The 45 super could be offering same performance ( weight of
bullet and velocity ) as the 10mm with considerably less
headaches in terms of component and ammo availability
as long as you are handloading. Note that the 45 super
requires the extra strong and thick cases sold by Starline.

Re: 45acp Or 10mm

I carry a glock model 29 10 mm as my conceled weapon. If you are looken for punch in a reasonable size package, that come stock with 10 rd mags then this is it. But there is some down side to the 10mm. The first being ammo, if you reload, then it is not to bad, but if you shoot factory ammo it can be a huge P.I.T.A( many times when u are in gun stores and u ask about 10 mm you will get a blank look) to find ammo.
I have been using winchester 175 silvertip ammo, and the last half dozen times I bought it(all at gun shows) they have been around 20 bucks for 20 rounds. Not to bad, but you have to look for it.
The second with factory ammo is alot of companys down load it to right at or a little above .40 s&w, which in my eyes is kinda pointless. Buffelo Bore has some full power loads for it but I have yet to see any of it local(shops, gun shows, etc).
From what i have read, the 10 mm with full power loads in the 1911 setup can really put a beating on the gun. Don't get me wrong, if i had the chance and the money i would love to have it in 10 mm. For the money i think glock is the way to go for the 10 mm.
I bought my glock used and over the last 3 or so years have put over 2500 rounds through it. Out of all of those i have had only 3 ftf with it(all with the same crappy ammo). My gun was thought to have 3 or 4 thousand rounds through it when i bought it.
the only problem i have had was a broken dissassembly spring(it still fired but i couldn't figure out why it felt "sloppy" during recoil until i dropped the mag and metal pieces fell out). the part was like 5 or 10 bucks and it took me all of 5 minutes to replace.
All in all I love the 10, but it is not a widely common round, good ammo can be hard to find. If you reload, it is not that big of a deal, but if you don't it is something you need to consider when contemplate'n a 10 mm. i hope this helps you, and if i ran on to long i do appoligize.

Re: 45acp Or 10mm

I carry a kimber custom II 45 ACP . I've owmed one 9mm glock and one 40 beretta . A friend and I went to do some plinking once at ole coke cans I couldn't hit the cans like (he was he was shooting a 9mm beretta) I was shooting the plastic glock. I thought maybe it's me and he can shoot better so i asked him to let me shoot his beretta and just about every time i pulled the trigger I hit the can . to make a long story short I SOLD the glock . I now have the kimer 45 ACP and I wouldn't say that the recoil is mild nor would i think that it didn't have enough punch . about to weeks ago I sat up a target at 50 YRDS and had to shots within 1 inch . And I don't clame to be a pistol shooter . I've only shot about 15 rounds out of this pistol .

kimber= point it at it and it will hit it

If I was going to get a 10mm it would be a 1911 Delta Elite they look awesome !

just my opinion

Re: 45acp Or 10mm

I just noticed my 10mm loads specs are off. My woods load is 180 XTP's at 1325 fps. 9.4 grains of Longshot gets me there. Next choice for woods carry is a 40S&W with similarly loaded 155 XTP's. The 45 is my last choice. Fun to shoot yes, potent for critters, not really.
