I contacted Buffalo Bore the other day to see what they had to say about the 10mm vs. the big .45 ACP round I'm interested in and this is the response I received back from them:
"Both our 230 gr. FMJ-FN and that 255gr. will penetrate a bears skull and/or
a black bears shoulder bones. With either of those two loads, there is no
need to get a 10mm (unless you simply want one:-) If you really want some
power in your 45 acp, use our 45 Super loads with those two same bullets
loaded into them..........What pistol are you planning to shoot these loads
in?"
So my new question is: Will the Glock 30 platform support the .45 Super round and if not what would I need to do to be able to run this round or is it even a possibility? Here are the ballistics on the same bullet coming out of this case:

.45 Super - 255 gr. Hard Cast FN - 1,075fps/M.E. 654 ft.lbs.
Versus
.45 ACP +P - 255 gr. Hard Cast FN (925 fps/M.E. 484 ft. lbs.)
