If the .355 9mm slug expands to .63 and penetrates the required 12 inches from a 3inch barrel then why subject yourself to the noise and recoil of the .355 357 sig that expands to .63 and expands the required 12 inches.
Because one hits @ 1100 FPS and the other @ 1450 FPS or so, That is a lot of energy. I for for one believe that if everything else is equal the one that hits harder wins. I have seen a lot of people shot with a lot of different rounds and high energy rounds were always more dramatic in terminal effect.
