    Being the History/CR nut, I kinda enjoyed the story in the June 20 SGN....

    How the "Hot" load nowadays for cops, and self-defense, the .40 S&W (AKA the 10mm"Short") is ballistically IDENTICAL to the old .38-40 BP cartridge from similar handgun barrel lengths...and nobody SERIOUSLY carried a revolver in that chambering if a .44-40 or .45 Colt was available back then....

    There truly IS "nothing new under the sun...."

    I didn't know the .38 was actually a .40 cal with 38 grains BP, so it SHOULD have been called the .40-38!

    That's what I'm going to call the .40S&W from now on to see if I get a rise.

    Yeah, I think I have to go with the "newer" round myself. LOL

    Something about a Glock in .38-40 doesn't seem to grab me...

    Yep, I`m a slave to fashion and fad`s, blue jeans, hightop tennies, t-shirt, and that new fangled .45acp in steel of course. I`m developing a 14mm handgun round.............it`al do more than all of them....fires a 310gr FMJ @ 3245fps....915lbs energy....sub 1" groups at 250yards....ya just have to be able to hold it, when ya squeeze the trigger....it`s alittle sharp in recoil.............

    Ya know how a .40 s&w is a short 10mm and a .357 sig is a .40 necked down to 9mm. Why hasn’t anybody necked down a 10mm to 9mm and called it “The .357 Sig Maximum"!?! All you would need is a new barrel in a stout 10mm pistol. I’ve been thinking about it for a long time now.

    Anything similar in an auto that has already been done?
