While back bought a Dragon Fire 357 Sig barrel for swapping in my FNX40 and after firing to get the hang of it, really starting to like this caliber.
If your also using this round would like input on which ammo your using. Taking some critical defense to range this week to see how that works

We used Speer Good Dots for a couple of years on duty, we have all switched to Hornady Critical Duty.

White dawg, what length barrel do you have? The Critical Defense was designed for barrels under 4 inches. Critical Duty is for 4 and over

I liked .357 sig, but it became clear it wasnít gonna stick around so I ditched it and kept the 9mm. Speer Gold Dots for me as well in the .357.
10mm is making a comeback though and does anything and everything the .357 does and more.

You wonít see many 10mm in the hands of law enforcement. From what I gather, thatís what brought on the creation of the 357Sig.

I think the 10mm brought on the .40S&W. They kept watering it down to improve scores and finally shortened it. I just purchased a P229 with .40S&W and .357 Sig barrels. It's a bit more accurate, for me at least, in the .357 Sig format. I'll be watching this.

edited to add:. I'll be reloading for the range, but carrying factory of some sort. Not sure what yet.

Edited again to add: Of course, a caliber can bring on more than one new one. I really don't know. The 10mm to .40 is the one I've read the most about.

Slow Drifter, you are correct. I was referring to the 357 Sig and didnít finish typing my thought. The 357 Sig was brought on because they were phasing out wheel guns but you had a lot of guys that liked their 357mag. Thatís what brought around the 357.

Pay attention to your rounds before you shoot them. 357Sig isnít easy to load for and can crush a lot of the necks. Thatís the problem we were having with the Winchester white box, crushed necks and the bullet seated to far down.

I had this issue with some Remington hollow point factory ammo. Anytime I would chamber a round probably 50% of the time when I would eject it the bullet would be pushed back into the case. After switching to the Gold Dots I no longer have that issue unless I chamber the same round over and over and over.
