Fusion and Storm Lake for 1911.
Wolf, Fire Dragon and Storm Lake for Glock.
Fire Dragon used to make a .400 Corbon for the 1911.
Just my thoughts, I'm not the world's biggest expert on anything...
I dare say your RIA barrel is every bit the quality of Fusion and Storm Lake.
Storm Lake makes its own barrels, but Fusion buys them from other barrel makers.
Neither of those two aftermarket barrels are nearly the quality of
Kart or Schuemann or Nowlin or BarSto. It would be a shame
to spend money and get the same thing you have.
If you can't find a barrel from one of the top name barrel makers
just stick with your RIA barrel. If you use commercial ammo
(even the hottest commercial ammo on the market)
your RIA warranty will cover the gun. Swap the barrel and it won't.
Are you certain your existing barrel cannot take
the hottest commercial 10mm ammo you can find?
Or maybe you were just asking to get some opinions.
All is good.
Do you actually own RIA 10mm? Because as far as I can tell, RIA 10mm IS fully supported chamber bull barrel.Thanks man. Any recommendations?
I got a Rock island tactical 10mm and I am planning to install it on it. I want to shoot the hottest stuff I can find.
The RIA 10mm's all have a fully supported chamber. Some of the better built 1911 10mm firearms you can buy actually. You should have no problem firing any ammo from the hot side of the spectrum. The Underwoods in particular are perfectly safe in your RIA.
I started using "fully supported barrels" in the early days of using .38 super in USPSA to make major. Competitors were exceeding the pressure of the case specs. to achieve "major" velocities for better scoring. Unfortunatelty, case failures were common enough to cause major concerns. Winchester increased the thickness of their brass in the extractor/web area, and headstamped their new case as .38 super +P . Reloaders moved toward ramped barrels which offered better case support, and often times used small rifle primers to help prevent primer flow back.NONE are "fully supported," some just have better support in the case head area than others
