RIA sells a ramped bull barrel for .40S&W. $95, but they are out of stock currently.

I don't at all recommend it, but .40S&W can be, and has been fired from many different makes and models of 10mm handguns. You Tube is full of videos showing this. Even 1911 type pistols.

Accuracy may suffer as they headspace differently, but it will function in a 10mm.

I have a S&W 4006, so this has never come up for me.

Why don't you load some soft 10mm loads for your ultra or just buy a 40.

Well, if you're planning on shooting a lot of .40, do the right thing, get a .40 pistol. : )

I went the opposite way. I bought the 40 S&W MS then got a 10mm barrel from Advanced.
Ive fired a few hundred 40s out of the 10mm barrel so far with no difficulties.
Except knowing it isn't head spacing in the barrel but held in place by the extractor. The slamming of the shell if any is so slight. Since I don't reload. Ive never looked at a case to see if its dinged. Which I doubt as its fully in the barrel as its fired. The only thing I have noticed is brass marks at the rear of the slide where the shell hits it on the way out.

When I was shopping around for a .40 barrel for my ProMatch Ultra 6in, I found it to be a cheaper option to just get an entire .40 top end (5in instead of 6in). With the new barrel and fitting (granted I was not going with a cheap barrel) it was going to be well over the $300 I paid for an entire top end.

Those brass casing marks are a common item with this pistol. Put my first 50 rounds through my RIA 10mm and it hit everything I pointed it at. No feed or firing failures. Weight and action harness pressures well. Not sure why you want to shoot 40 S&W out of your hand cannon. Iím sure you can sell or gift that bucket of brass to a fellow range rat.

Brass marks are a good mark that it is not a safe queen

most all 10mm on the shelf is 40S&W performance any way. 10mm is hard to enjoy unless you open your wallet for Underwood, etc, or reload it.

That's what I carry in mine. I also have Underwood ammo in my HK USP9C, and my S&W 4006.

Not hard to get since they are about 2 miles down the road here.
