Default .357 sig vs 10mm

this isn't about the guns they're shot out of this is about the performance of the rounds in every aspect

im already putting in a vote for the .357 sig... ready go

It depends on your application. The 10mm is awesome and the 357 is no slouch either. My choice was the 10mm short, y'know 40S&W.

Yea I went with the 10 mm f.b.i. Aka 40 S&W. Wish I could afford both a 10mm and a 357 sig.

yeah i got the .40 first and it is always gonna be my favorite over the .357 sig and the .45 acp (those are what I have) I went out and bought the conversion barrel (lone wolf) for my g22 that makes it the .357 sig (g31)

and I know a few people that converted their g20 into the .40 (also thanks to lone wolf)

The full length 10MM (not 40S&W) is about as powerful as a 41 magnum. The 357 SIG (which I have and really like) is made to equal the 357 magnum with 124/125 grain bullets. Different animals. For self protection, I'd go with the 357, for hunting, the 10MM.

I carried and shot several .357 sig pistols for years. It is a dream for reloaders. The round is very effective and lots of fun to shoot plus it fits in the same size frame guns as the .40 SW. A barrel change will convert .357 to 40 or vice versa as already pointed out. I had both .40 and .357 sig and never shot the .40.
The 357 sig is loud, has a significant flash, especially when loaded with Power Pistol powder,and has snappy recoil.

10mm requires a larger frame pistol. There are fewer pistol choices and it has a stout recoil that seriously limits follow up shots. As mentioned, 10mm is great for hunting but .357sig is great for concealed carry and range shooting.

Another plus to .357 sig is that recently I have seen retailers selling HP ammo for cheap prices to clear them out. Not sure if manufacturers are discontinuing them or if the popularity is decreasing.

I've never fired a 10mm but have a Sig 229 357 sig and thats what the Secret Service carry .So if the 10mm were better i'am sure they would be carrying the 10mm instead but thats just what i think

I have both the .357 Sig and 10mm in my arsenal. I couldn't honestly say which round is better, because I use them for totally different applications. My Sig .357 round is mainly used for home defense. While my 10mm round is used for competition. The recoil on both come up about similar, on non modified handguns. The price of the ammo is more expensive that most traditional ammo, but .357 ammo has come down just a tad.
