So, I decided to buy some hot Underwood 200 or 220 grain pushing 1,350 FPS. Now, that was hot. You could definitely tell a big difference between that and the regular 10mm range ammo I had shot previously. However, this ammo was much more expensive and not something I would shoot regularly.

And then it dawned on me... I don’t hunt, hike, camp, or reload. So, why did I need a 10mm pistol????

I already owned a Glock 22 in .40 S&W and had determined that regular 10mm wasn’t much different than .40.

So, I sold the Glock 20 for what I had in it. It was fun for a few months and I’m glad I tried it.
Yeah, if you're not out in big creature country, the 10mm isn't the best choice for a pistol caliber, but between a revolver in .41/.44/.45 and the 10mm Glock, the Glock is a lot lighter and holds 10 more rounds.

Only shooting factory ammo in a 10mm is an expensive proposition. It really is a reloader's only cartridge for those looking to shoot the max power stuff, but that's not unlike any of the big bore revolver calibers either.
