Any Hard Performance Data on .357 Sig?

    I've been reading up on the .357 Sig, and I have yet to find any legitimate ballistic performance comparisons on it. By and large, everything supporting or denouncing the round is anecdotal.

    Does anyone know of somewhere I can go to read up on some performance data for myself? Firearms Tactical has a page comparing rounds from FBI testing, but I can't seem to find it again, and I don't think the .357 Sig was on that list anyway. Can anyone confirm this?

    Not sure what you are really looking for, especially since Agencies such at Texas State Troopers and Federal Air Marshalls are issued pistols in .357Sig, I think that they would have satisfactory performance in penetration of car doors & windshields and in humans.

    If you want to see gelatin testing of .357Sig, visit www.brassfetcher.com

    Some Winchester Ranger data

    Here is a link to some good ballistic testing data by Winchester on their Ranger law enforcement ammunition. It covers all the common calibers, including .357 Sig, and uses different test media, such as bare gelatin, clothed gelatin, window glass, etc.

    Winchesters 357sig load is pretty slow.
