there's no autoloader rounds available in 10mm that can touch a 357Mag loaded with 180gr flat-nosed hardcasts running balls-out as loaded by Buffalo Bore, Doubletap or Grizzly Ammo.

10mm trumps .357Mag...


If it were me, I'd go with the 10mm, but I must admit that I'm a huge 10mm fan... More power than a .357Mag and more capacity... Yeah, count me in. I carry my 10mm (Glock 20SF) as my social and woods gun in Kodiak, I just change ammo depending on where I'm headed...

If a wheelgun is what you're looking for then a good .41Mag is the ticket...

But I am a handloader that loves weird calibers... So YMMV
