If you mean the 357 Sig, it's quite a calliber. Way hotter than the 9mm, truly more like a 357 mag, the Glock handles it well! Not as much recoil as the 10mm, and it tends to have a more versitile range of bullets. Here is on of the best web pages I have found for the caliber...Good Shooting! JeffG :D

JeffG, I've got to differ with you on this one. First off, the 10mm recoil isn't that bad. As a matter of fact, it's way over stated. If you can shoot a 357 Mag, you can handle the 10mm with no problem. As far as the 357 Mag vs 357 Sig debate, there is none. The 357 Sig cannot handle anywhere near the wide range of bullets that the 357 Mag can handle. NO way that the 357 Sig has a more versatile range of bullets than the 10mm! I can get factory loaded 10mm as light as 135 gr. and up to 200 gr. So you see, the 10mm can be used for self defense against 2 and 4 legged predators, plus you can hunt with it. This fact really makes the 357 Sig quite limited as to its uses. Furthermore, you can convert a Glock 20 from 10mm to the 40 $&$ and the 357 Sig, but you can't convert a 357 Sig Glock to the 10mm. :D MI VHNTR

Glock in 357?

:D The .357 Sig is a great round...The 125grn pill is pushing just about the same speed,as teh 125 out of the .357mag. Both are hp rounds,and the mag beats it by about 50-75fps...Thats fairly close,in a handgun used for personal protection agains the evil types. The hands down winner that i have ever seen is that 125jhp in a .357 mag for ending a personal encounter...Its running about 90 percent with that round. I think you could do a lot worse in picking a personal defense round other that the .357 Sig. Now i know someone is going to argue with me,but from personal observations,it is the best for what you want to use it for. I also carry a 10mm,and it is no secret that I like it a lot,but..i have some old NORMA rounds with which it is fed for self defense purposes....good luck...king 8)
