Hey guys any 357 sig shooters out there? Comments good or bad on the caliber. I have a G27 thinking about picking up a G33 barrel.

My everyday carry is a S&W M&P Full Size 357Sig with Crimson Trace laser grip. I like it alot. It packs a punch but it is very controlable for me with a tight grip on fast follow-up shots. I also have a 40S&W barrel which I use from time to time.

Usually a G32 or 33 with me when I leave the house.

G32 is a regular carry gun for me. Kimber Tactical Ultra II (45 ACP) is the other favorite. Totally different means to an end but I fully trust either to get the job done if necessary. The wife is fond of the G32 also and keeps it with her when I'm out of town.

Awesome round, very accurate. I carry it in my 229 when not carrying my 9mm. Some people cite the punch, but hey my first handgun was a 10mm!

I'll probably convert a .40 S&W Hi Power to a 357 Sig later in the year, along with some customization.

The round is fast becoming my favorite. While I don't own a 357 Sig yet, I do shoot one when I train with a friend of mine. It's his preferred caliber and I get to shoot one of many 357 Sigs almost every outing. I'm really liking the recoil impulse as it tends to not "flip" as much as the .40 S&W, but have more of a straight back "push".

Another thing I'm liking is the ballistics, at least on paper. Since I load +P+ in my 9mm I see the 357 Sig as a natural progression for me.

M&P FS in .357 sig here, carry and range. I love it, have no problems holding on to it as the muzzle flip/recoil is in the range .40, not a huge difference at least. It has a pretty decent flash though.

I have a KKM 357 sig coversion barrel in my HD G35. Great shooting gun. Add some DT 115 grain smokin fast rounds and it lots of fun.

My next pistol will be a G32 for EDC. I carry a G23 now. I would just get a barrel but why not get a whole gun instead. :image035:

It's very snappy in the Steyr M357-A1. I can't really see the advantage of it. It's a 9mm bullet loaded to .40 S&W pressures. Fast, but lightweight - does it penetrate well enough for SD?

It is a fantastic round. Lilke BikerRN, I too noticed that the recoil seems to be straight back, not so much muzzle flip.

Love the round, but ammo here is? Unless reloading. Enjoy! I have to hang with 9mm, 40, 45acp, no complaints though these all work fine for me.

Exceptional ballistics...I often carry a SIG P229 SAS with .357 SIG.

sig

I have a G27 and G30..converted the G27 to a G33...found the old style glock 33 barrel off a member on GlockTalk..I love it ..its what I carry most of the time ..winter time carry a must..was shooting the 40 at a tree..then changed over to the sig barrel..sig went through the tree the 40 didn't..plus I can empty the clip fast and hold a 2-3 inch group around 20 yards or so....sig man for life!!!!!!!!!!!:hand10:

After 20+ yrs of doing the caliber dance, (9mm to 10mm to 45acp, back to 10mm, then back again to 45acp....etc.), I am now happy as can be with the 357sig cartridge!!

Gobbles up everything and super accurate. Recoil does not feel any different to me than a 45acp load. As a longtime 1911 fanatic,....my 1911's are now range guns. My P229 in 357sig is all I have carried for the last year and a half!!

Here's some interesting reading;
III.C.2.q.6. .357 Sig

Love my G33. I keep it loaded up with 125g DT. As noted, try the 115g DT too for some serious fun shooting. I want to get a G35 w/.357SIG barrel next for range fun.
