Dating back to the 1986 FBI Miami shootout which resulted in the creation of this cartridge. The 10mm never gain popularity and accepted by law enforcement agencies around the country. This was due to the excessive recoil which many to-be, and in the field LEO who scored poorly. Thus the stripped down 10mm, anemic 10mm or weak 10mm also known as the 40 S&W was born. Full power 10mm sits between between the .357 magnum and .44 magnum.

Current era

Modern 9mm such as the Federal HST and Speer Gold Dot has taken the FBI and many law enforcement agencies across the country by storm. With wounding ballistics equating to the 40S&W. Subsequently, in the past couple of years the FBI decided to switch to the 9mm .
