I don't think the FBI ever issued the full-power loads. Testing revealed that they could get the performance they wanted without 10mm ballistics, so they - the training unit that was evaluating guns and cartridges - developed a new, reduced load for FBI use. The "gun's too big", "too heavy", etc., mostly came into play later, when the FBI wanted to justify getting out of the 10mm.
