I can do them and sound nice on my electric. They have 10 d'addrio. xl

On my Taylor acoustic which has 12 martins. I cant do them as easy. They sound buzzy. Unless i really squeeze and press. How can i fix this? How can i strengthen my hands enough to to make them sound perfect?

Play a lot of barre chords.

Seriously - why would you ask a question like this?
Do you feel warm within your cage?

I found it best to practise just barring, with just the first finger, and making sure i could hear the barre clearly on all strings on the 1st fret. then add in the other fingers

Sometimes it's more about positioning, first it seemed like i had to put loads of pressure on a barre chord, now i dont, just keep close to the fretwire and if the chords buzzes, reposition your hand.

The tension difference between 10's and 12's are over 30lbs. So logically, your acoustic would be harder to play. Just keep playing barre chords. You'll benefit from getting used to it on your acoustic.

practice, i learned all of my barre chords on the acoustic cause i didn't have an electric for the first year of playing. I play on 13s on my acoustic, and 10s on the electric. When i finally got an electric it was really easy.

I tried BAGDAD tuning once, it actually was quite alright.
