    OT, but this thread made me go get soup for lunch.
    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.

    I just noticed there is a specific forum here for ammo related talk ~ " Defensive Ammunition and Ballistics" I'm turning myself in guilty as charged AND all kidding aside and all due respect i completely understand the need for some order

    I have heard that the magtech SD rounds aren't that great for expansion. I'd recommend getting some Ranger T and/or PDX1. The linkk below shows a perfomrance test by the Winchester, they seem to get a little less than 8 inches of penitration through the tested mediums like glass, wallboard, gelatin denim, and "heavy clothing". IMO I would definately run a bonded round on .380 to aid in expansion, someone has a link here with excellent results from the bonded PDX1.

    That is why in 380/32 I carry fmj, shot placement in king, pentration is queen and then expansion. From my limited study anything not moving better than 1000 fps and not bigger than 200 grain doesn't seem to expand reliably.

    No surprise on the Sig round, never shot one but everything I've seen in print is pretty impressive...

    This backs up my theory that with low-powered rounds, you're just as well off with FMJs that might at least break bones if struck.

    As far as being able to have one-and-one-only SD round, the .357 SIG would be right at the top of choices for me.
