An M10i will handle a full routing table just fine. Note that as with
other hardware based forwarding boxes memory on the RE is just one of
several resources you need to verify.

These days I would probably recommend the RE-850, which runs just fine
in both M7i and M10i, and comes standard with 1.5 GByte memory.
