    Good shooting. But I have a very hard time believing those numbers. WWB with 125gr at 1800+? I don’t buy it. Something wrong with the chrono perhaps.

    Yondering and I only got 1800+ using Underwood 115gr out of an 11” Mechtech.

    Out of a 6” Glock, we got right around 1700.

    I don’t remember the numbers we got for the 125gr (Underwood and a couple other hot brands), but it wasn’t as fast.

Sure its possible to do that with other pistol cartridges; but 357SIG did it with minimal adjustments.

    I do worry that 357SIG has fallen in popularity. Its harder to find, even at well stocked gun shops. I stocked up and I know its still available online.
    It is available, just costs more in my experience. For practice shooting I purchased a used oem barrel at SI for $50 can shoot 40 in mine. Brass if you reload is more available in 40 and I have a .22 upper for it.

    I've a rare HK USP 357 sig that i'm going to dump on GB.. then RMR my G35 and put a 357 barrel in it.

    While i "know" that statistically there's no difference between 9,40,&45. I can't help but think there's something to the 357 sig or the 135gr 10mm doing 1600fps. The problem is finding volunteers....Maybe some Minnesota Somali's with hammers? I could go visit my sister...
