10mm is in. You can't argue with the power downrange and when packaged in a classic 1911 pistol platform, the 10mm is surprisingly easy to control. Recoil is a bit more than a .45 ACP in a similar handgun, but not bad. American Handgunner magazine editor Tom McHale checks out the Springfield Armory 1911 Ronin 10mm with a range report.
