When you are asked to pick the 10 best handgun hunting cartridges, you immediately realize you will have to leave some out. So, you have to make some decisions. Do you pick the ones that are the most popular at the expense of others that are ideal for certain applications? Or maybe, maybe, you pick a separate cartridge for each of the most common applications?
There is really no right answer; regardless of what you do you will make some folks happy because you picked their favorite, and you will piss others off because you left out their favorite. But here is the thing, when it comes to cartridge selection, just as with rifles there is a lot of overlap. For example, I left off the 41 Magnum because it is not as popular as the 10mm or the 44 Magnum.
