does a gauge 0.10 makes it easier to play fast stuff on the Low E like Metallica songs.
They use 0.10 I think

The rule of thumb is that string tension increases with string thickness. It may or may not be easier, but it will all come down to what you are used to and more comfortable with.

I eaven tryed 10-52 on a standard tuning. If you want quick (rifs), then thicker is better...

Fast metallica riffs need a fast wrist, a small pick, and really high string tension. I use 11-49 now, and i seem to get along pretty well with that, but I used to use 10-46, and those seemed a little too loose.

I've got a set of 10-46 on my SZR at the moment. They're not bad but I would like to try the set of 10-52 I've got - some of the drop D (All Nightmare Long) leaves the 6th somewhat saggy. If I were to go from 10-46 to 10-52 would I need to change the truss rod tension? If so I'll take it to a shop.

Seriously there is no "better" string gauge for any genre or style. Everything about strings is all personal preference. What works for Metallica may not work at all for you.

Try different gauges until you find something that you feel comfortable playing.
