Any of them are very flexible and can be loaded for anything I can think of
It quietly whispers "Convert all your .40S&W guns".
And I quietly whisper back "I already did".
What's your favorite caliber?
? Did you mean to ask favorite cartridge?
There are over thirty cartridges chambered for the .308 caliber.
Sorry I don't mean to be picky but...
I liked your post for the quality and not the content, lol. I bought a Glock G31 in 2001 or so to replace a G24 and I found the .357 Sig to be noticeably more snappy and obnoxious than .40 S&W. But, that's not why I abandoned it and returned to .40 S&W. It was because it was so expensive and hard to find back then, when I didn't reload and had a wife and two kids in the house.
Now, I do reload, and I agree the numbers are impressive, but I have heard it is a pain to reload and I just don't have an interest in trying to reload another caliber in the middle of the greatest ammo and components shortage in modern history.
That's pretty understandable. It's got a few more steps in the reloading process, and is not nearly as simple as straight walled pistol cartridges. But once you have a process and have the dies dialed in, it's not a big deal.
I actually only have two loads. One is a 124gr FMJ-FP with Power Pistol, and the other a 125gr Gold Dot with BE-86. Some people like the idea of loading a variety of bullet weights and working up many different loads for "versatility". I like to keep it simple. Though I prefer Federal 125gr HST for carry.
It's snappier than .40, but not quite so pushy. Or atleast that's been my experience. It probably is a dying cartridge, as people say. But so is the .41 mag, and I still have one of those.
