    10 MM 1911

    How significant is the recoil on them? is it more of a snap or push? Just wondering what it might compare to never having shot one.

    I would compare it to a .40 cal on steroids if your shooting top end loads. Nice thing is I can reload from mild to wild depending on the mood. I'm shooting them from a Dan Wesson Bruin 1911 so with the 6.3" barrel it helps tame it so I stay on target.

    If you shoot a real 10mm round you will know it but nothing that serious.
    It will get and keep your attention.

    I am guessing off the shelf ammo is not what it could be?

    Underwood makes some decent ammo in 10mm but a lot of the more common commercial stuff is more like a hot .40
    88 (aka 88, the mad scientist)

    Underwood/buffalo bore and others offer some really nice Full Monti rounds but they are expensive

    Sig/Remington and others offer up good range/practice ammo that is more like a hot 40 as 88 mentioned.

    10 MM 1911

    I've shot many a magnum J-frame SW that has far more snap than a 10 mm. The 1911 is a relatively stout platform that soaks up a lot of the recoil. Now the slides tend to be beefy so you have some reciprocating weight.

    My experience with first time 10mm shooters is their response tends to be, "Well, That wasn't too bad".

    Go rent one with some Sig 1250 fps ammo or maybe someone nearby will let you shoot one. The Sig ammo is a decent approximation of the original loads. Sure isn't the screamers mentioned up thread or the downloaded stuff on the store shelf.

    Here is a pic of a proper 10mm by CM...he knows how to do 10 mm!

    Don't blame me....it is Turbo's fault.
