    I agree completely about the 10mm and I typically avoid those debates as well. The 10mm is an ideal round (but not the best round :D) for a Michigan woods gun and hunting whitetail. I also have a Ruger Blackhawk 44 mag for the same purpose. Michigan doesn't have Browns or Grizzly. In the Upper Peninsula where I hunt there are black bear, wolf, and a few cats. Sure there can be an extreme circumstance or the very rare crazy encounter story but I'm very confident toting the 10mm here.

    Always has been my favorite thread...

    Finally unpacking my knives after the big move. My 1873 wrapped in custom RLO leather, my scandi KEBushie, and my prize Rechsteiner Nessmuk.

    One of the interesting differences between the 10mm and the 44 mag. is the meplat. You can get a nice keith style round in that .44 mag. I have no direct experience feeding hardcast least flat nosed bullets in a semi-auto but its worth exploring.

    I wouldn't want to be on the other end of either.

    Because it's 4th of July. And I've missed this thread. And this pistol. And this knife.

    Because it's Sunday...
    And I love this thread...
    And it was 7 pages deep on the Forum...
    And since Andy just had to show up at Trackrock with that beautiful .30 Carbine...

    I felt the need to dust off the M1A
