Why? Because if you shoot it into a block of gelatin it just doesn't appear to do anything that the 9mm Luger cartridge cannot. But how can that be? It's just a more powerful 9mm, right? It's higher velocity and delivers more energy than 9mm Luger, so in must be better. Indeed it is, but without a proper testing medium to adequately showcase the advantages, it just doesn't look any better.
I would say that the .357 Sig was DESIGNED and INTENDED to duplicate .357 magnum performance. However Based on what I have seen it falls far short of the 357 magnum and perhaps only meets 9mm +P or +P+ loadings.
I don't believe in "range fodder" that is why I reload.
