Offrink Finally got a call from Springfield today. After 3 week wait. Said the frame was cracked and they would also replace the extractor. They told me to go after hornady for the bad round. Total cost was $77.

Yes, it was overblown.

The fact is that with modern ammunition, the 10mm doesn't offer much over 9mm for law enforcement use. It's not just a question of being easier to shoot, although being easier and faster to put hits on target, is certainly an advantage.

Offrink Took it out 16 days ago and put 100 rounds through it. Had two light struck primers in 30-35 shots. Then a really big buzzy hand. Had an out of battery round. Cracked frame, part missing on back of slide. Despite 7-9 rounds still in the mag there was some chunks taken out of the follower in the mag. Didn’t notice the cracked frame or missing piece until after I got home and cleaned the gun. After the out of battery round I field stripped and checked for damage and didn’t see any at the time. I fired another 65-70 rounds with a couple that sounded a little off but all went bang and all hit the target. Been at Springfield for over a 14 days and no word yet. Was going to wait to post but decided to put it up now anyway. Was shooting factory hornady rounds.

gsrr Only time I have had that was after shooting a .44 Magnum. It was numb for about a month. I think it was that was the problem. I shot it again later and did have the issue. Have not had the same issue with a 10mm.

Optimist Desert Eagle made pistols in .357, .41 and .44 Magnum. It's a big gun, too big for my hands, but accurate to a fault. I preferred 4" or 5.5" revolvers in that round, so my .41s and 10mms were of about the same barrel length. As to the performance, wasn't much difference on taking game.

Offrink I’m not sure if the 41 magnum and the 10 mm can be compared. The 41 mag is a revolver round and the 10mm a semi auto. If there was a 41 or 44 mag in a semi auto it would be a very interesting pistol. I like that the xdm 10mm is a 15 +1 pistol. 16 rounds of full power 10mm would be potent for all but the biggest animals.

Optimist The vehicle I tested against was the .41 Magnum. I've shot deer with both cartridges, and the results were quite similar. BANG! Fresh deer to clean, hang, skin and quarter. The old Silvertip 10mm worked fine for that application.

Have heard it stated, havenít confirmed yet, that a 10mm at 100yards has as much energy as a 45acp at the barrel. I would definitely call that impressive!

Offrink After taking it out for a second quick two mag practice I had no buzzing finger. Maybe it hit a nerve just right. Maybe it broke in just a little more. Not sure. Put a laser on it and what an amazing flat shooter.

While I understand that a petite person may have a more difficult time with a larger round shouldnít, with proper training, pretty much anyone be competent on all non magnum semi auto calibers? If that means that the 100lb person needs a few days of extra training then I wouldnít think that was a bad thing. I have seen some smaller women be pretty competent with some large caliber rifles and pistols.

Only reference to it I could find was on hickock45 YouTube video of this exact pistol. His solution was to put a bandaid on his trigger finger. That got me wondering if it is common or is it only this one caliber/pistol combo.
It's a matter of how the trigger is contacting your finger. Due to the way your hand is built, the trigger is tapping the nerve in the finger, causing it to buzz the way your funny bone does when you hit your elbow. I'd try the bandaid on the trigger finger and see if that helps the issue. If it does, you can relieve the trigger surface by the bandaid thickness to stop the trigger hitting on the nerve....

That will also work.

The fact it was easy for you isn't an indication of how well it works for the FBI since their firearms need to fit a wide variety of people if they are going to be "standard issue" weapons.

That includes many females and others with smaller hands.

Get some 165 grain HP's and feed it 12 grains of bluedot and a heavy crimp. My favorite recipe.

I was amazed at how well my 5.25 shot. My son did have an issue with the grip safety pinching the web of his hand, he has pretty meaty paws where I got skinny hands. He said man this thing just hits here you point .... lol

I will get some hotter loads and see If i get the finger sting and report back to you
