Why did they go with the 9mm bullets in the 357 sig?
I know I may be a bit slow here but I recently found out that the 357 sig uses 9mm bullets and not 357 bullets. I am wondering what the reason is. For me half of the fun of the 357 magnum is the bullet verity. Without much looking you can find factory loaded ammo with ammo ranging from 110 grain to 200 grain. I have seen reloads from 90 grains up to 230 grains.
Unfortunately for the 357 sig is limited to 150ish grains at the heavy end.
I am just wondering why they went this route?
