The 10mm is an ideal round (but not the best round ) 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.
