10mm semi-auto handguns / Re: Current consensus on EAA 10mms?

That looks to be one of the new-ish P-Match Pro guns from Tanfoglio.  Reviews are good.

It is a fine looking gun.

I carry my 10's though, and I don't think this one would work IWB very well.  Looks on the "big" side.  Great range/woods/hunting rig though.

Lately I have been buying pulls from rocky mountain reloading and american reloading.  Wideners and Natchez usually have decent stock too.

Dealers make very little on guns.  They make money on accessories and ammo.

Yeah...That is what I meant by he only shoots what he can buy locally.  He needs to buy some "real" ammo online.

Maybe one of us should contact him and offer to drop ship some underwood his way.  40 and 10mm.

You must have watched a different video than you posted.

At the end of the video he makes all the right points.

1.  Shame on federal for marketing 40 S&W ammo as 10mm
2.  You can through a lot of money away on ammo loaded in 10mm cases, paying a premium, but only get 40 S&W velocity
3.  The 10mm is a "lot" more powerful than the 40, if you get actual 10mm ammo
4.  Caveat Emptor

His biggest problem is he seems only shoot what he can buy at local gun stores.  He needs to order up some Underwood.

Sig has been running some great deals lately.

I dropped another bill on them yesterday for 21 of the AR mags they are blowing out for $5 each.  I went 21 to get the free shipping.

$935 and $1104 would line up exactly with a 15% margin.

BTW does anyone know where I can get one of those high tech fleece bullet stops?  ;D

My second favorite store...JoAnn Fabrics

Yeah.  I thought exactly the same thing right after I clicked post.

1200 fps is with a TMJ TC design.  WFN cast bullet designs get up to 1250.  But the Gold Dot is a long for weight bullet, and that means a smaller initial usable case volume.  Boyles law is a mean SOB.

Think of all the skymiles you could earn!

Some pictures:

Packaging and Wilson Combat markings:


Side by side with a SR1911 10mm mag (Ruger on the left):

And comparing the followers, Ruger is silver on the right, Sig/Wilson is black on the left:

Same magazine at Midway:

I am pleasantly surprised to see these loaded to a three shot average of 1,117 fps.  That is a bonus 100 fps over where I figured they would load it, and only 83 fps short of full power 10mm.  Good job Speer!

These are actually Wilson mags.  Same ones that midway has for 33.99.  I just ordered eight more.

This is a pretty balanced comparison of the 10mm as defense round to the 45 ACP.  The author correctly identifies the 10mm as more powerful, even significantly so.  He demonstrates that the additional power doesn't impact his speed or accuracy when shooting plates.

He gets into the details of the "Fish" case in AZ and debunks a good bit of the FUDD surrounding that case and the 10mm.

And the real world test against a simulated thoracic cavity was one of the best I have seen.  And again shows the 10mm to be a markedly better performer, though the author seemed to miss out on some aspects of the better performance.

The only real misses in the video as far as I am concerned were this:

1. Though the 10mm thoroughly destroyed both simulated lungs, which would have lead to twice the exsanguination of the assailant, he only notes the performance as marginally better.  I attribute this to not fully considering how much lungs will bleed, and the importance of bleed rate in winning a defensive encounter.

2.  He does a third test with the 45 using 230 grain ball ammo, and extols its very valid virtues as a defensive round given it's penetration.  However, he does not afford the 10mm a similar test using 200 grain FMJ or TC ammo.  He says that the tests could "gone on forever", and I agree you have to draw a line at some point, but the line should have been drawn either before the 230 grain test, or after the 10mm had it's chance with 200 grain ammo.

3.  He predominately uses 185 grain JHP 45 ACP vs 180 grain JHP 10mm.  This gives a velocity advantage to the 45 and a sectional density advantage to the 10mm.  A more "fair" approach IMHO would be to compare 180 grain 10mm to 230 grain 45 ACP as these share the same sectional density.  Using the same weight seems like an apples to apples comparison, but it isn't.

4.  The author alludes to the additional cost of ammo at the local gun store.  I can't argue that 10mm ammo will be more at the local gunstore, but who buys ammo in large quantities at a local store, unless it is on sale.  It is 2017, buy your ammo online.  And if you shop, that price advantage becomes very, very small.

Despite these items, the video was informative and accurate.  One of the better 10mm comparison vids I have seen.
