    IMHO, I would not reload .357 Sig. Agree, if you are a reloader, as you state, 10mm is asking for it.

    357 Sig is a fine cartridge, but my vote is 10mm. IMHO, firing 357 Sig is psychologically devastating down range. 10mm has a great deal of versatility, that many other rounds just cannot be loaded to.

    Now you fellas have me regretting my .357 Sigs.

    I guess I still have the weak argument that a jury might consider a 10mm more then needed. But that is a weak one.

    Well, on .357 Sig, I'm down to a slightly nicer grip and 2nd shot placement.

    I carried a Glock 32 in .357 Sig for about a year. It developed some function issues, so I sold it. The 9x23s I now carry are, for all practical purposes, ballistic twins of .357 Sig. When I'm not carrying a 9x23, I'm usually carrying one of my Delta Elites, loaded with either Cor-Bon or Double Tap 135gr. JHPs. Overpenetration is not going to be a problem with these loads in 10mm. They do recoil a bit more than my 9x23s, but control is not a problem. My Deltas are holding up well.

    I'm about to get a grip reduction done on my Glock 29, so I expect it will see some carry in a few months. When I'm on the road and choose not to bring along a long gun (rare) I have a Glock 20 with a 6" Bar-Sto barrel for my "hand rifle." So yeah, I like 10mms...

    Here's my most frequently carried Delta:


    And my 5" 9x23 Aegis:


    And, last but not least, my little 9x23 Ultra Aegis, that rides with me more than any other:

    I am not a fan of the 10mm. The report is painful! Even with hearing protection, I hate shooting or being near someone who is shooting a 10mm. Balistically, it's great, sure, but it's painful!

    If you don't like the sound of a 10mm, you'll HATE a .357 Sig! Interesting the issue of report should come up; one of the things I like about my Glock 29 is the deep BOOM from the short barrel. Generates testosterone!

    That's possible, I've never fired one. And, that I know of, never heard anyone else fire one.

    Edit: The report of the 10mm sounds VERY sharp to me, is the .357sig similar?

    .357 SIG has a pretty fair amount of noise and muzzle flash - more than the "big three" of defensive handgun rounds. It's not as bad as full-house 10mm, though.

    The 10mm is indeed a powerful and versatile round. If, somehow, I was restricted to only one handgun caliber (but could get that caliber in any weight/configuration I wanted), I'd choose it. That said, there still ain't no such thing as a free lunch - more power downrange equals more "whoa!" in your hands. For general CC, it isn't my first choice, though it is certainly capable of just about anything a defensive handgun could/should be called on to accomplish.
    A man fires a rifle for many years, and he goes to war. And afterward he turns the rifle in at the armory, and he believes he's finished with the rifle. But no matter what else he might do with his hands - love a woman, build a house, change his son's diaper - his hands remember the rifle.

    Comment and Question

    I love the 10mm round but only out of the 1911 platform, I first shot it out of the largest Glock and it wasn't good, but in the Delta Elite, wow I was sold.

    How do the ballistics compared to a 44 mag and 454 Casull and could you use it against bear (in an extreme situation) and such with good results?

    The 10mm is no 44 mag or 454 Casull or even a 41 mag.But there is a 10mm mag.

    Oh I wouldn't worry about it. I have a .357 SIG barrel and not a 10mm gun of any kind. Nothing wrong with that cartridge, if it works for you there's nothing to feel bad about.
