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. Want to learn more? Head to our blog to read how the 10mm stacks up to 357 magnum.
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 among American civilian shooters.
