Default For you guys who love 10mm revolvers...

I put this in The Lounge also but I rarely go ther so I am posting it here for those who don't go there either...

Would you like to see a 10mm Auto Rim???

If so please let Starline know and if enough people ask and state how much they would buy who knows...they are now making .41 Special aren't they...and there are not even any dedicated .41 Special revolvers commercially made...just customs.

Contact Starline Brass | Rifle, Handgun and Pistol Reloading Brass

Just click on Select One and put in New Cartridge Suggestion...

Thanks...Bob

I am all for a 10mm auto rim revolver. I just can't see it happening. I emailed Starline about making 500 JRH brass and they said there wasn't enough demand. Hell there is already factory revolver chambered for it and they still won't make brass.

In the new Handloader (#314) magazine, in an article on the 10mm Auto, there's one line where Brian Pearce says "S&W is considering re-introducing the Model 610 revolver". Anybody heard that recently?

If S&W does, then I'd definitely like to see/have a 10mm Auto Rim to use in one.

I can't see 10MM AR happening

41 Special, 45 Cowboy or 500 Special are easy since loading dies already exist that will work for them. It is very cheap for a handloader to add any of these to his lineup after all they are simply shorter versions of cartridges already in the production

A 10MM AR is MUCH harder to get off the ground

You would require a new shell holder for single stage presses. That is not too hard since one manufacturers product would fit all single stage presses. Getting one manufacturer to produce some would be pretty easy.

To sell the brass in quantity, you need to attract folks that shoot enough that they would use the faster progressive presses. Here you need new shell plates for those progressive loaders and every manufacturer uses a different plate.

It will be very hard to convince manufacturers to make 10MM AR plates. Or it will be very expensive to have one custom made for your press

Then depending on which dies you are using, most likely the crimping die would need to be replaced. Yes, you could take your crimping die to a grinding wheel and shorten it yourself but most folks won't.

The sizing die will also have to be redesigned to get all the way down to sit against that auto rim. In 40S&W, 10MM Auto and 10MM Magnum we do not have to size all the way down, we just size down to the extractor groove. This is a non-issue with 45AR since there is enough case web there to contain this low pressure cartridge.

OK you could strengthen the 10MM AR case web to handle 37,500+ psi and not need a new sizer. However now you have reduced the case capacity, so 10MM Auto loading data is no longer valid for this cartridge.

Default 10 mm revolvers

I am just the opposite. I like the full moon clips. In the summer time when it is really hot, I take my 610 to the range very early in the am and can put 120 rounds down range in no time and leave before it gets really hot. Also, if I don't have a lot of time to spend at the range, I load my clips. Also, I enjoy using at other times.
I clamped 2 pieces of hardwood together and drilled 12 ˝ holes.
Put the bullets on each depression and press the clip onto the bullet and can load clips quickly. My demooning tool takes off 2 pieces of brass at the time so it is quick.
But to each, his own

If you want it write... They told several of us that there was not enough demand for the .41 Special either...and it is now being produced.

As said Ruger just introduced the 10mm GP-100 and I will be picking one up in 10 days... They also have a Super Redhawk and their stainless Blackhawk can easily be modified to take AR without loosing the ability to shoot standard 10mm...

And since S&W is "thinking" about bringing back a 10mm why not at least ask...

....hummm...another thing I just thought of...will there be enough room in the GP-100 for the rims? In the 610 or SRH no problem, but I don't know about the GP...

I'd ask. What's the worst they can say??? I like the 10mm and almost chose one as my woods gun in an Auto before I went with a 625 in .45acp/Super. I carried Supers in it exclusively until I went with .44Magnum 6 months ago.

Sorry to be a wet blanket, but I really see the concept as a solution in search of a problem.

...well there is a "problem" for a lot of people who like the concept of a 10mm revolver but don't want the hassle of dealing with the clips...

Was on another forum and one of the posters there knows of someone who has already made the request for 10K 10mm rimmed cases...so if a buch more of us ask it can happen...

As far as a shell holder goes...I would imagine Dillon would come out with one once the brass becomes available..and the rest would follow.

Regardless of how unlikely! I’m all for it and would like to Starline make a special run here and there. Hoping it gains momentum.

Shell plates for reloading shouldn’t really be an issue.
