Im not sure I have the right answer, but I would say that it is becuase it is between the 9mm and .45 in side, and both are common calibers and both work well in shootings.

It offers a pretty large caliber with nearly the same ammo capacity as the 9mm and the energy and expansion of the .45.

Just my 2 cents.

Hello. I'd guess because it can make "major caliber" rating in those competitions where such is a factor in scoring and having more momentum than the 9mm, it's better at falling plates. Being smaller diameter than .45, an extra shot or two can be had between reloads.
