Yes it is. So you can shoot it and then melt it down or what ever and reuse it.

For $85 a pop it better be reusable.

Ok, I just have to ask. You already state you own a number of shotguns and a 9mm Sig - seriously? The tone and content of your questions, especially this last one, just seems a bit weird coming from sombody that already owns multiple guns...

i am fairly knowledgable about the shotguns i own however the sig is my first handgun and i bought it for my own personall use and home defense, i bought it because my wife can not really grip or shoot my 12 guages they are too powerful for her, so we got the sig, which is an awesome gun...not only a name brand i trust but i love the way it felt in my hands and how smooth everything opperated... when i shot it i knew i wanted it....

now the tone from your post suggest to me that you have a problem with me asking questions about my guns-seriously? is there something wrong with me wanting to educate myself more about the safety, availability, and use of my weapons/ammo?

Nope, but we have a lot of folks come here and say they have XX guns and XX years of experience when in reality they have none. It's rare to see someone that owns a gun, especially an expensive gun like a Sig, to know so very little about what ammo to use.

We're all glad to help but being a tad skeptical is the nature of the beast...

I'd stick with the shotties for home defense use.

The transfer of the energy from the bullet to the body is what does the damage. That's why higher powered, heavier bullets do more damage than hand thrown rocks.

Energy=Mass times (time squared) IE, the more mass and velocity, the more damage will be done when the projectile hits a target.

I learned to shoot handguns on Army issue M9s. After I got out of the Army, I "stepped up" and refined my skills with an H&K USP chambered in .45 ACP. I traded it in on a Kimber Compact II. It took a 1911 for me to really hone my skills. At the height of my shooting, I was able to drop a full 7 round magazine into a 10 inch steel, at 50 yards, in under 10 seconds, a feat that I could never do with bulky, clumsy DA/SA pistols.

The Sigs have the best of the SA/DA actions though.
