    Thank you sir... yup, that's what I did. Dog gone it, I can't decide which caliber I like the most... some days .40, some days .357 so it's the best of both worlds.

    I'm saving my sheckled for a P-220 SAS next!

    By the way, good link!

    My daily carry is a SIG P229 in .357SIG. I am a big proponent of the 10mm/40SW round, but I find that recoil is less in the .357SIG than in the 40SW. As others have said it is probably one of the flattest shooting rounds chambered for a standard semi-auto handgun, and I have found that it is not much of a stretch to make a 100yd shot with one. It is LOUD however, and will really get you noticed at the range, and unless you handload (or know someone who does) ammo is a bit pricey.

    Here is the best price I have found on .357SIG Gold Dots on the web. These are 50 round boxes not the more common 20 rounders.

    For anyone interested:

    KY Imports is selling Speer Lawman 100 grain, frangible lead-free training ammo for $159.99 (1000 rounds). While it probably doesn't precisely replicate 125 grain rounds, that's cheap for 357 SIG (approx. $8.00 a box of 50).

    Site: http://www.kyimports.com/ammo.htm

    Note, they last updated their site in February 2006, so you might want to double-check their latest price for that ammo.

    Georgia Arms sells clean, low-flash, FMJ (125gr, 1300fps) at $190/1000. That works out to $9.50 for 50. That's what I use when I'm not at the indoor range (where I have to buy ammo from the range). I like it because the feel is almost identical to my Speer GD defensive load.

    the 357 auto is an amazing round that will serve you very well. i carry 125 grain corbon jhp's in my g31, and will most likely carry them in my soon to be purchased g33. for practice i just shoot WWB.

    Love the 357 Sig

    KY Imports is selling Speer Lawman 100 grain referenced above is problematic in my G32. I would not recommend purchasing this ammo unless you like FTF drills!!!

    I have refit my G27,G23, and G35 with 357 Sig. I find the accuracy and control superior to the 40 S&W - qualitatively.

    I would recomend that anyone carrying or thinking of carrying the 357 Sig round take a few moments to read the shooting report done by the State Attorney of Florida involving the two federal air marshals back a while. The fact that three of nine rounds went through and through and traveled 90+ feet and still embeded in a metal wall has resulted in that agency considering a different caliber. Hey its your decision just some good insite.

    I have nothing against the .357sig but really have no desire to own one. I have a ruger P-944 .40 and find that several 155 gr loads in
    .40 S&W break 500 ft/lbs. I just think that the .357 sig can do anything that the .40 can't. Plus if you like to reload the .357 sig would require the extra step of having to lube the case because of the bottleneck.

    I just purchased a 229R that came with .357 sig and .40 barrels, so I picked up a Barsto 9mm conversion barrel to make it a TRIPLE threat. I already have 1,000 practice rds of 9mm for my other pistol.
    I just found a box of 100 WWB at Sportman's Warehouse, in .357 sig 125 grn FMJ, for $18+change. The Speer GD's, 125 grn bonded JHP, were $16+ for only 20, but it will be my carry ammo.
    I trust Gold Dots with my life.
