I saw one at my local shop today. Has anyone ever had any experience with one of these in this cliber/ Just wondering how the round stands next to the 9mm/40SW as far as stopping power. Don't need a debate, but i have very little info on the round. I would imagine the recoil would be nice. This gun camw with what appeared to be 2 8 round mags. Priced at $620.00 and looked very nice.

Thanks,

Rick

I have a few USPC's in .357 SIG. The .357 SIG is an extremely powerful round. In terms of ballistics, this caliber is very flat shooting and produces very high velocity and accuracy. The recoil is slightly greater than a .45,but less than that of the .40 IMO.

The P2000Sk is an outstanding weapon in the .357 platform, so long as it fits your hand to accomodate good control.

The cost of .357 ammo is a deterent for some, but it's worth the price of admission IMO.

Good luck in your decision;

The .357sig is a really fun round to shoot.

It will definatly get you noticed at the range..

It's a very snappy recoil, big flash, big bang, flat shooting, accurate round.

Ammo can be a bit difficult to find, and it is more spendy than 9mm, .40, .45.

Some people will tell you that the .357sig is a pointless round, and when compared to 135gr .40sw they do make a good case. However, unless you handload your 135gr .40sw bullet options are very limited.

Also keep in mind, if you feel the need you can always swap the barrel and shoot .40sw in the future.
