Redhawk, my friend's .500 would leave your Ruger in the dust. What is your point?

My point was that the differences between power and penetration between 10mm and .357 are not all that much; that in platforms of comparable size, the 10mm may well be more controllable; and that if power or capability vs larger critters is the goal, there are other gun/ammo combinations that are much more capable.

In other words, there isn't enough practical difference for the 10/357 debate to get that heated. The .357 has the edge in velocity, energy, and SD; the 10mm may have the edge in faster shots on target, and will probably have the edge in round capacity, but they are more similar than not.
