I have a road wheel that has Campagnolo splined hub and 10 speed cassette. I'd like to know if anyone has any experience running a Campy wheel on Shimano/Sram drive train? I know the measurements of the cassette sprockets are a bit off but wondering if you can get acceptable shifting performance.

I don't have experience with that exact setup. I have used a Shimano-9 wheel on a Campy-9 drivetrain, and it more or less works. With the addition of a shiftmate, you can mechanically compensate for the differences in cable pull. It's a little fussy getting set up right, but it does work.
Also, (not that you asked, just in case someone else finds this thread in the future), Mavic sells a cassette that fits Shimano splines but has Campy-10 spacing, for use on a Campy drivetrain. I'm not aware of a cassette that does the reverse, but it wouldn't surprise me if one is out there.
I've seen it in the other direction - usually from nuetral support, shimano wheels on campy drivetrains and it's servicable if you want to finish a race, but it'll never be completely smooth. honestly, sell that campy wheel and buy a shimano one on craigslist. The campy stuff sells for more typically, so you'd probably even come out ahead. Unless of course you're trying to swap stuff between bikes, which, in general will be problematic with campy + shimano.
