It would take a lot to get me to choose a 10mm over a 44 mag for hunting, but who out there hunts with a 10mm? What gun and load do you hunt with?

With how hard it's been to find the revolver I want, I may open up my options some.

I don't hunt with one - yet. I just picked up my first 10mm last week. I don't have any reloading components or dies for it yet, either, so I bought a case of federal fusions. I've seen great results with the fusion line of ammo and decided to give it a whirl since I don't have time to hunt down components for 10mm as of now. I've got it zeroed in and it'll do 2.5" groups at 50 yards with me resting my arms. If I rest the gun on anything, it'll do 15" groups at 50 yards. I look forward to giving it a try on whitetail this season. I do not like chasing brass though, and it's throwing brass 15-20 feet. We'll see how it all plays out. Oh......it's the Springfield 1911 TRP 5" with trijicon RMR.

I set up a G40 for a friend a few years ago, but he hasn't deer hunted since then. With a slightly longer after market barrel it was giving good velocities compared to the published values from factory ammo. IMHO it would work fine for hunting. I felt that the glock trigger dictated the range limit of that setup.

KRal, I've got the SA 1911 TRP longslide - 6 inch barrel coming. Looks like a serious 1911 and MO deer better stay clear. Sounds like yours is a shooter!

I have a G40 with a ZEV aftermarket trigger in it, but I?ve killed more hogs with my G20 simply because I carry it more. I can?t really say I?ve hunted with it, just have had it on me when hogs were encountered. Several of them were killed in my corral trap, some were just unlucky.

The 10 mm is a good killer up to whitetail size, although I?ve not killed a deer with it, they aren?t as tough as a large hog.

Mark,
The 6? is what I had my eye on, but ran across a fabulous deal on the 5? that I just couldn?t pass up. I?m sure the MO deer will not like it quite as well.

I hunt mostly with my 44 and 460 but I'm also a 10 mm junkie my 610 is running 165 sierras at 1390fps with aa9. It's topped with a Burris ff3 killed a yote at 80 yards a few weeks ago with it. Kimber 1911 is stoked with blue dot and 150 noslers and picked up a Springfield osp last week in 10mm and put a Trijicon on it today and it shot decent with factory Sig ammo. Get the 610 great trigger and accurate and I use the Rimz plastic moon clips. Wouldn't hesitant to take a doe or small buck with it and took 2 decent pigs last year with it.

I have the TRP 6? long slide it shoots quite well.
I am shooting handloaded 180 Winchester HP over BE-86
I really like the gun. But my eyes just do not do as well as they did when I was young. I shoot my poor mans race guns with the dot sight much better.
Once you get use to those the dot the target sights seem so large.
