I have been looking at this caliber and wonder if any of you have experience with it and can tell me about it. Recoil? accuracy? overpenetration? etc. Thanks

I have a Glock 32. Biggest complaint I have is the price and selection of ammunition. Walmart dosnt carry any of it so I am stuck going to Sportsmans. Prices are higher but not gouging.

It is very punchy, but I like it for some off reason. No qualms with accruacy, as the inaccuracy I see is only due to me :D

If you want, try to come out with us tomorrow at Get Some. I would be more than happy to let you shoot my G32.

Alot of people mention it's over penetration. I have not had to use it in a situation that cause me to investigate so I do not know. Makes sense though as the big 'punch' for a small, high compression round.

I had a Sig P229 for a while chambered in .357 sig. It was a really nice shooter. It definitely has the ability to penetrate. It was made to mock the .357 mag as closely as possible, making it a great one shot stopper. I would say that it recoils a tiny bit more than the .40 S&W, but not much. The only reason that I sold it is because ammo is so dang expensive that I stopped buying it, and my gun just sat there. But I have other guns that I like to shoot that aren't too bad on the pocket book.

If you really wanna get one and shoot it for a reasonable price, there is a site that sells Speer Lawman ammo that is pretty cheap compared to what you can buy here. My friend has a .357 Sig p239 and went to Doug's to get a box of ammo, and it was $25. A while ago my bro and I found a site that sells the Lawman ammo for $10.99 a box and $199.99 for 1000 rounds. www.kyimports.com Back when I had my .357 Sig, I think they sold it for about $8 a box. I don't remember what shipping is on it, but it's better than $25 a box, that's for dang sure. I used that ammo for a while and really liked it. It's a frangible ammunition that doesn't contain lead, and fragments when it hits. So if you like to shoot steel targets, which is what I do quite a bit, there is no chance of the bullet ricocheting back in your direction. And for those people who don't know, the bullet really will come back at you unless you angle the steel target a bit so the bullet will glance off instead of come right back where it came from.

:shock:

I've shot a Glock 32 for years. Love the caliber as it packs 357 magnum power in a small or mid frame automatic. It does have a very sharp crack to it so it is definitely loud. Reloading for it can be a little tricky as you have to use truncated cone bullets which have a straight side. Round nose 9mm's won't work because the short straight section of the brass doesn't have enough length to hold the bullet.
I am impatiently waiting for S&W to make a Sig barrel available for the M&P.
