30 amps is how much a 10-2 wire will carry at 110 feet. 10 gauge wire is only good for thirty amps per the national electrical code. Using 80% of the breakers usage you will actually be getting only 24 amps.

You can safely use 10-2 wire for 30 amps at 40 feet.

2 AWG in Aluminium is required.

This is a voltage drop question and a voltage needs to be stated.

Yes, a #10 wire will carry 30 amps for 30 feet. If the load is rated as continuous then the wire will have to be derated to 80% capacity which will leave you with 24 workable amps. If the load demands currents higher that 24 amps then you will have to go to the next wire size up which is a #8 which is rated at 45 amps.
