    Default 10mm Game Pics

    Im feeling board, lazy, and procrastinating on accomplishing some college homework..so I thought it would be neat to have a thread dedicated to game taken with the up-and-coming 10mm Auto. I also believe Glock has noticed the demand rise for these and have created a larger platform for the 10mm, although I haven't seen one in person yet. I can't believe the FBI ever gave up on these.. (dang women).

    Please do share hunting pics and/or comments that are related to this handy cartridge...

    I've taken dall sheep, mt goat and a grizzly with mine. Grizzly wasn't on purpose and I did shoot him with a rifle later. Poor first shot late at night while he was harassing the lodge I worked at.

    And wouldn't mind hearing the story behind a few of those.

    It's a colt 1911 built by Josh jefferson of talkeetna mountain custom(tenmm in the forums). Six inch barrel. Stays on a paper plate at 100 if I practice with it a bit.
    The mt goat was a 2 or 3 yard shot in its bed. Never stood up. Shot a ewe sheep up pioneer peak at 16 yards with it as well.
    The geizzly was a quartering toward me shot and I took him to far back. Into the later half the ribs, lodging just under the hide in the opposite hind quarter. I let him run as it was my last bullet from shooting around it trying to scare it off. Found him the next morning wallowing in the lake trying to ease his gut pains. I finished him with a rifle. Wish my shot had been better.

    Took a small black bear at about 12 yards with bone stock G20 and factory Federal ammo. This is from Montana, not Alaska: was archery hunting for elk and saw a black bear snoozing on a dead mule deer from a few hundred yards. Magpies kept landing on the mulie carcass and the bear would wake up, snap at them and then fall asleep again. Wish I had a video, it was pretty funny! Swapped bow for pistol, snuck up from down wind, gagging on the rotting mulie stench. This was in a jumble of sagebrush with very high wind. I had to yell twice, very loud, to get the bear to lift his head and "pop": my first black bear and first pistol kill.

    Very nice!

    Could you bear the stench to do a Euro on the Mule deer? Would make for a very cool mount, both bear and buck together!

    How far did bear make it after the shot?

    Thanks all. The bear didn't move an inch after the shot, lifted its head and dropped right back down after the shot but shot it twice more to be sure. The picture was taken right where it expired, right behind the dead mulie. The taxi found two bullets, one in the neck/spine vertebrae that was bent quite a bit (FMJ bullets) which must have been the first shot. The mulie head stunk so bad I couldn't even tie it onto the bear during the haul out, it was nasty, still some rotting brain and tongue tissue. The bear stunk also, but not as bad. Hoping to go back and get the head soon, it's a short hike and a pretty nice mule deer and hope to Euro mount it next to the bear. Pretty small bear, though. Still fun and how often do things line up like that: sleeping bear, wind perfect, etc.?

    yep, shot the goat the day before shooting the blackie. Big bear, over 20 inch skull. Great area up there, one of my all time best hunts.

    My buddy killed this bear at under 10 yards. I was blowing a predator call, never thought it would work though. Left the rifles at the bottom of the tree lol. What kinda sights are you guys using on your G20's to help with those long shots?
