A revolver in .41 mag is more accurate for hunting.
So if not hunting, what then is the purpose, self defense? The ones I have shot zip right through anything simulating a human, and expend most of their energy on what lies beyond the target. If loaded down, it becomes a .40 S&W in power. So maybe defense from big angry predators is the best use for a 10mm semi auto?

Unfortunately, the most common use I have seen is destroying objects on the range and giggling like Beavis at the power, blast, and destruction, which certainly is a fun use for a range toy.

No, I would not want one in an M&P.
Why does the A-10 have the GAU-8? Because it's awesome and destroys everything. I would like that option in an M&P. Would make an excellent camping gun. Easier to holster and carry an M&P than a 41 mag revolver. I love my 629 but it's too freakin huge/heavy. I have a 1076 FBI but I would hate myself for life if something happened and I lost it on the 4 wheeler.
