10mm is an extremely popular cartridge for hunters and outdoorsmen for a number of reasons, chiefly, the fact that the 10mm sports not only some of the best power-to-capacity of any semi-auto handgun cartridge but also gives outdoorsmen and hunters access to a wide variety of defensive ammunition that is suited for defending oneself from predators they may encounter when out in the wild. Springfield has just announced their new Desert FDE 10mm XD-M Elite OSP pistol which is an additional variant on the XDM-Elite OSP pistol series.
