10mm vs. .357 Magnum

For you revolver fanatics and for those that asked for a revolver comparison of 357 Magnum and 10MM, well you got it. We listed the guns in the video above should you want to add one to your own collection.


  1. You failed to point out the consequences of the transfer of energy from the bullets into the gel. This transfer of energy and the wound path opened up by the bullets means that the 10mm is probably more lethal than the 357 mag in real-life situations.

  2. People buy the revolver in 357 Mag. After shooting the revolver/ 357 they are unpleasantly suprised to the sho0ck and pain this experience . The 10mm, on the otherhand, is more pleasant to shoot. I learned that after spending a lot of time and money. Bottom line? Buy what you want.
