MY ONLY connection to the 10mm

RIGHT AFTER Colt came out with the Delta Elite, I was at a competition shoot and Colt was one of the shoot sponsors. So, I am wearing my Gold Cup and one of the Colt guys spots it and says to me " You try the Delta in 10mm and you'll give up the .45"
"Why?"
"Because it is a better load with more energy and velocity..etc.."

I looked at him and said.. "For serious work I carry the Speer 200gr HP moving out the barrel at 1200fps. I don't think I am giving up anything to the 10 and my bullet is bigger in diameter. "
He looked at me, looked at my GC, and said "Never mind."
