10mm Ammo, called 10mm Auto or 10mm Automatic, is a semi-automatic pistol ammunition first launched in 1983. It’s design was adopted and later manufactured by ammunition maker FFV Norma AB of Amotfors, Sweden.

The 10mm cartridge was selected for service by the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) in 1989, following the events of 1986’s FBI Miami shooting. The cartridge was eventually retired following their Firearms Training Unit, which concluded that the cartridge’s recoil was too high in relation to training average police officers and agents in competency and their qualifications.

They also concluded the pistols that chambered it was big for those with smaller hands. This led to the development of a more minor variation of the 10-mm, which currently is known as .40 S&W. From 2007 until now, the 10mm Ammo has increased in popularity.

The typical rifling twist rate of the 10mm cartridge is 406.40 millimeters (1 for 16 inches). Six grooves, O land equal 9.91 millimeters (.390 in), O grooves equal 10.17 millimeters (.4005 in), and land width equal 3.05 3 millimeters (.120 inches). Small or large pistol primer is utilized.

The Commission Internationale Permanente pour l’Epreuve des Armes a Feu Portatives (C.I.P. ; Permanent International Commission for the Proof of Small Arms) rules state the maximum pressure as 223 MPa (33,000 psi). In C.I.P. states, every gun/cartridge combination has to be tested with 130% pressure. The maximum C.I.P. to allow sales to the public.

The sporting Arms and Ammunition Manufacturers Institute (SAAMI) maximum pressure limit for the 10mm Auto is 37500 PSI (259 MPa).

10mm Automatic Performance

With a mid-range potential, 10mm ammunition has more energy than an average standard .357 Magnum. The 10mm is slightly less powerful than the .357 Magnum with high-performing commercially-available ammunition or hand-loaded .357 magnums and well below standard .41 Magnum rounds.

It is believed to be extremely fast, giving it a lower arcing flight path when firing (also called “flat-shooting”) relative to other handgun cartridges. Higher-powered loads can be equivalent to the top-performing .357 Magnum cartridge and retain more kinetic energy when fired at 100 yards than .45 ACP has at the muzzle.

The 10mm ammunition outperforms the .40 S&W by 270-300 ft/s (82-91 meters per second) with similar bullet weights using a full-power shell, contrasting with the “10mm FBI” level loads that are still available in some ammunition catalogs. This can be attributed to 10mm’s more powerful SAAMI pressure rating of 37,500 PSI (259 MPa) instead of 35,500 psi (240 MPa) for the .40 S&W, and the bigger capacity of the case that allows for the use of larger bullets, and smokeless powder.

Usage of 10mm Ammo

10mm Ammo is designed for hunting, defensive and tactical purposes. 10mm is among the few semi-automatic round cartridges with a rimless legally used for hunting white-tailed deer across numerous U.S. states. This cartridge is part of the “Major” power factor ranking in the International Practical Shooting Confederation, even when loaded with lighter ammunition.

The FBI Hostage Rescue Team, Special Weapons, and Tactics Teams, as well as a variety of police agencies, also continue to authorize or issue the usage of 10-millimeter weapons, which includes The Coconut Creek Police Department, Glasgow, Montana Police Department, Weimar Police Department, and the San Francisco Bay Area Rapid Transit (BART) Police Department.

In the military, the Government of Denmark has granted Glock 20 pistols to the Slaedepatruljen Sirius (Sirius Sledge Patrol), based at Daneborg, Northeast Greenland. The guns were given to defend against bears encountered by the patrol.
