Default 10mm carbine

I have a friend who hunts with a 10mm pistol. I was thinking about a carbine for shots less than 100 yards. Any thoughts?

You will wound more deer than you kill. Shoot a rifle that insures a clean kill.

Get something in .44 mag for a PCC.
If you do that then lever action and other carbines are a dime a dozen.



Ballistically 10mm = .357 mag, and the energy just isn't enough for deer unless it'll let ya walk up to it.


If you just have to have a 10mm then you better start thinking less than 50 yards.

I shot the 10mm for a number of years but never used it for hunting, I agree with others that unless you shot are under 50yrd. I have several lever 44's and never looked back.

I like the 44 caliber and have an Encore pistol now. My friend has a Ruger carbine that I have been trying to buy. No one makes an auto any longer so the best option is a lever.

Been looking at the High Point. Ruger will have a 10mm version soon. Just can't decide what I want.
