    Default 10 mm

    I have a buddy that's wanting to hog hunt with his 10 mm glock. He is looking for the longer barrel for it. What's a realistic maximum affective range for the round ? I believe it's a Glock 40. He is a crack shot with it. Thanks.

    That's what I told him LOL! He read somewhere that he could gain some velocity with a Lone Wolf or Storm Lake barrel which is supposed to be longer.

    You will gain some velocity,,,but we all know shot placement is what matters. If he has some hard cast flat point that would be best. I would shy away from hollow points.

    I would guess 50 yards or less? I don't know.

    The energy (Ft/Lbs) on a 10mm 180Gr XTP is 464 at 50yds. 403 at 100 yds.

    (Its funny,,,On a .454 Casull Its 1500 at 50 yards and 1163 at 100 yards with a 240Gr XTP)

    Good luck with your hunt!!!!

    Buffalo Bore loads some 10mm rounds that are supposed to be "hunting" rounds.

    I have killed hogs with 10mm from touching the pig with the barrel to well over 100 yards. Good xtp or hardcast with put them down All about were you shoot them. They are worse than deer if you push them before they have expired. They will get up and run outta country with no blood loss whatsoever. I used a 6” lone wolf. With vickers sights

    Sluggin is right,,,,shot placement is more important than caliber size, but I wouldn't go to small.

    The 10mm will get it done!
