45 ACP 21,000 PSI
45 ACP +p 23,000 PSI
45 Super 28,000 PSI
460 Rowland 38,000 PSI
10mm 32,000 + a bit
The steroid version of the 45 ACP is the Rowland which is being set up as kits in ever smaller and lighter packages
. The only problem I have with the gun is that they always seem to end up in essentially the same size gun
as a .45 ACP. The 10mm shoots flatter and seems to have more of a selection of deep penetrating bullets, which only works if your planning to be outside of 90% of most shooting incidents and you are shooting something heavy bodied.
I'd rather have a 45 type for home defense. too big for practical concealed carry and a 10mm with 200 grain loads if I needed to discourage a black bear or test my handgun skills on hogs. The Dan Wesson is a very nice 10mm for anyone who likes 1911 types.
