Battle of the two powerhouse handguns.
Both the Glock 10mm and the .357 magnum are serious personal defense calibers.
YouTuber mark3smle demonstrates what each caliber is capable of against a ballistic gel.
Ballistic gelatin is a testing medium scientifically correlated to swine muscle tissue (which in turn is comparable to human muscle tissue), in which the effects of bullet wounds can be simulated.
In other word, the ballistic gel gives you an idea of the path of the bullet when it penetrates a target.
You can observe the length of the penetration and the thickness of the canal. Normally, the beginning entrance is usually where its thick. This thickness is the density of where muscle tissues are being damaged.

These two powerful cartridges penetration are quite impressive. Traditionally, the .357 magnum has a long track record of a mini-hand cannon for personal defense.
In mark3smle test you can see the .357 penetration at 22 inches.
The 10mm is a newcomer in the hunting world, but has become a big player in the market for bear hunters or anyone needing extra power. The 10mm penetration was around 16 inches.

Without talking about the numbers, both calibers are very impressive for power. If you’re an auto frame person, go with a Glock10mm. If you’re into Dirty Harry mini hand cannon, go with a .357.

Which would you carry?, Let us know below.
