I use 10s on a telecaster for slide.
Depends on your action and technique. I use 9s on my guitars and did this on my Squier Bullet,
I always set my action just a little higher than the lowest it will go as I like to bend under strings as well.
Honestly, any gauge can work for slide... however... a heavy slide (like already mentioned..) WILL give a fuller/warmer/fatter tone... and if the string gauge is heavier you will get a bump in mid response however... all of the tone aspects can be dialed in to taste of the contour controls of the amplifier and you guitar's tone controls... go with what gauge you like and let it fly.
I use 11-48 for fretted and slide work but, that doesn't mean you have to...
check out his guy.. he has good info if you're looking to build up your slide chops ad get your guitar set nice for slide antics..
