I believe if the military wasn't stuck to the 9mm, they would look at 10mm and have a variety of different 10mm loads for different demands. Maybe even a submachine gun too.

There aren't many submachine guns out there with a bullet that's packing 900 to 1000 ft/lbs at the muzzle.

But for now 10mm is only seeing use with civilians and the drawback to that versatility is factory ammo options for non reloaders.

Years ago when I was adamant I wasn't going to spend the money to get into reloading, I bought the Glock 35 and later the 27 in .40. Today, if I could do it over, I would have gotten the Glock 40 and a 29. The nice thing about the .40 Glocks I got is the switch to 9mm is a simple barrel swap.
The military has SBRs, which saw the decline of many subguns. They are coming back, however.
