10mm ammo is one of the most underappreciated handgun cartridges on the market. The brainchild of legendary pistoleer Jeff Cooper and engineers at ammo manufacturer Norma, these rounds were designed to be a fighting round and to give an automatic handgun the same power capability of a revolver. The 10mm easily exceeded 357 magnum loadings, but users had a much higher capacity than a revolver.
10mm ammunition could’ve easily been forgotten about and left as a small page in the book of firearms history. Fortunately the FBI adopted the 10mm pistol after a shootout in Miami in 1986 that left their agents outgunned even though they outnumbered the two assailants. The 10mm experienced a short service life with the FBI, but has since gained a cult like following.
Look for 10mm ammo for sale with a wide variety of bullet types as it is a pretty versatile caliber. The 10mm pistol has the ability to be loaded down to be soft shooting and comfortable with lighter weight bullets, or can literally be loaded for bear with a 220 grain hardcast load from Buffalo bore. Either way, be sure to check out the in-stock selection from great brands like Hornady, Federal and PMC.
