Guns & Ammo TV: Springfield XDM 10mm

The 10mm is resurging in popularity thanks to new guns like Springfield Armory’s XD-M 10mm. Modern platforms make shooting the powerful cartridge easier than ever. In this “At The Range” segment, Guns & Ammo Editor Eric Poole and Senior Field Editor Craig Boddington look over the features of the XD-M.

Available with a 5.25- or 4.5-inch barrel, both models of the XD-M 10mm offer shooters 15-plus-one capacities and carry a red fiber-optic front sights. The 5.25-inch model utilizes a slide cut so that both models maintain the same slide weight, which allows either version to use the same guide rods and spring assemblies.

Both pistols include different backstraps to accommodate different hand sizes, which help to make the XD-M 10mm more controllable. Adding the weight of a light such as Streamlight’s TLR-1 HL makes the pistols even more flat shooting. When looking for a controllable pistol with a big punch, the Springfield Armory XD-M 10mm should be on your short list to check out.

A guide on how to pair .223 and 5.56 NATO rifle barrel twist rates with bullet weights. Conventional wisdom says slower twist rates wouldn't properly-stabilize a heavy bullet. On the other hand, faster rates could over-stabilize lighter bullets. This is correct in theory, however, modern ballisticians have all but debunked the over-stabilization theory.
