.357 SIG Usage

Usage
The .357 Sig is in use with multiple law enforcement agencies and carried for personal defense by some civilians. The relatively high velocity for a handgun cartridge offers flatter trajectory and hydrostatic damage potential.
Recoil for the .357 Sig is comparable to the .40 S&W. Since the 10mm Auto is the parent cartridge of both, conversion kits are available to use both cartridges from the same pistol by changing barrels and springs on some models.
