You may also want to consider the S&W 610.

My 7.5" Super Redhawk is a .454 Casull.

My 6.5" Blackhawk is a 50th. Anniversary Flattop .44 magnum.

My 4.2" GP100 Match Champion is a 10mm.

I have the 6.5" Blackhawk because I already have a Super Redhawk in 44, and GP100s in 357. I didn't have a Blackhawk.

Since 10mm and 357 are ballistically very similar, any revolver built to withstand 357 will be fine with 10mm, so guns like the SRH, and Blackhawk, IMHO are overkill, but, that doesn't mean they don't have a purpose, and are big, hulking chunks of steel that don't live up to their potential.

I really enjoy my 10mm Blackhawk, and shooting 40 from it with the conversion cylinder is a HOOT !! It has a lot of thump, and I like things that are a little different, so shooting 40 from a BIG single action revolver brings a smile to my face.

I have 3 other autoloaders chambered in 10mm, so I don't shoot much 10 from my BH, but it definitely gets a steady diet of 40.

Even though the GP100 in 10mm is a little bigger than most people would carry I still think it's geared more towards a carry gun type of role. The Super Redhawk is geared more towards a hunting and range toy type of role and the Blackhawk is geared in a similar type of role, but it also has the single action cool factor and the ability to swap out cylinders with the 40 S&W one. For those reasons that's what I would choose. Unless I wanted to mount a scope on the gun. Then I would get the Super Redhawk. You can get a rail to mount a scope on the Blackhawk too, but it's just easier to do it on the Super Redhawk.

In the end I do like 10mm a lot, but I still prefer 357 magnum if I had to pick only one. Thankfully I don't so I'll keep shooting and reloading both.

I cant comment on the S&W, but I hear it is a nice revolver. If you dont have a GP100 then Id recommend you consider this model. I have a 6 in 357 and a 3 in 10mm. I think it is the perfect size for the caliber. My two cents.
