Last night I was thinking that Sig took a .40S&W case, necked it down to use a ".357" and voila, .357 Sig. So, has anyone taken a 10mm case (just a longer .40cal) and necked it down? Wouldn't this be like a .357Sig on steroids? Fill me in.

Thanks Hoss. So why the increased popularity of the Sig round versus the Dillon? Just the increased recoil?

Read that entire article about the 9X25 Dillon. It pretty much explains the main reasons that the cartridge wasn't successful.

But the biggest drawback to the cartridge, and the one that largely contributed to it falling out of favor was the enormous shock wave that was produced when the cartridge was fired. When firing the gun, the shooter could actually feel the impulse hit their face and travel up their arm. After a while, some people began to experience tendinitis in their wrists and other soreness in their wrists and arms. For a lot of people the trade-off from reduced felt recoil and a quicker second shot wasn't worth the potential damage that could be caused to their hearing and wrists.
Ouch!

Nice link Hoss.
