Erik, if I was starting this project today, I would be looking at a Desert Eagle in 357 Magnum. It would be much easier to convert. Only requirements should be a reamer, to open up the chamber. And set of dies to load 9x30.

Is there a place with more information on the 9x30? Converting a Desert Eagle to shoot that cartridge would be incredible!

This seems like a good place to learn from. Am I making a mistake converting my Glock 29 to 9x25 for my EDC.

I don't see why it is, I have the same. Same power factor of the 10mm 180 but lighter for carry. It also match the power of the 357mag from Buffalo Bore and also shoot the same bullet.
How powerful is 10mm? Well, see those craters on the moon?

Scarlett Pistol, you would likely need t do careful work ups to see where you will be.  It would be my suggestion that powders like LongShot, Lil'Gun, W296/H110 and AA#9 would be on par with the 9X30.
If you are to work with the Desert Eagle there is a port that allows the gas to cycle the slide/bolt for function.  They require slower burning powders that produce a lot of gas to work the action.

Thank you! This goes on my bucket list for the next 5 years. First things first will be getting a 9x25 barrel for my Witness Hunter!
