10mm or .45 Super

This might be a silly question but I am wondering if someone can give a theoretical scientific answer.

If you were going to have to shoot something bigger than you should shoot with a service size AutoLoader. Which would it be? !0mm-A bit faster, .45 Super-A bit bigger. If you stuck to Service size autoloaders, is there another cartridge you would use other than these two cartrides possibly. I guess there is the .460 Roland but to me having to use the compensator stretches it beyond service size to me.

Oh...I don't plan on doing this. I am just stretching my mind a bit. I think.

10MM or 45Super

Both are good cartridges

My choice for a HOT load is the 40 Super. Easy to run 1900fps with a 135gr bullet. No compensator.

As much as I like the .40 Super, ammo availability without handloading
is not very good. The 10, which isn't the easiest ammo to find is still
a whole lot easier to find and has many, many more designer rounds
available for it. There is very little in the lower 48 that you would have
a problem with shootin a 10mm...

Mr. Hall,
I didn't realize We were talkin' factory loads and if We are ,that lets out the 45Super... far as I know with Triton out ,no ones makin' 45Super.
But....When all is said and done...and as We all know...Hits are what counts. A miss by a quarter inch or a bad hit...either from the fastest ,heaviest thing goin' ain't a lot of help.
Another problem with loadin's like the 40 Super is recoil.I shoot a Thousand or so 10MM's at 169 power factor a week ,IPSC load ,I'm as strong as most, IT don't take alot of 40 Super to be enough. If You can't pratice with it .....You probably can't hit with it.

Thanks,

I've had and shot both, the .40 Super out of an HK USP Compact .45
with no modifications other than sights and a fine trigger job...sure,
it's definitely a monster round, and if I could walk into my local
gunshop and say gimme a box of those, that's what I'd have until
my elbows and hands give out. It's a harder round to handload...a
little anyway, brass lasts nowhere near as long, and it's harder to
find virgin brass to load than the 10mm. For my purposes, the 10
is a perfect balance of power and reliability....
