Well I was bored at work tonight and while wandering around, I was thinking of what caliber of the next handgun I'd like to get and was thinking of reloading a .357sig and if it'd be difficult. While I was thinking that, I remembered all the .45 brass I have and was curious if there is a caliber like the 357sig but larger like a .40 in a .45? Or is there something similar already?

I think Their was once, years ago, a wildcat based on a .45 case.
Maybe a 9mm bullet?
Never saw the point of that, but it sold magazines.

Yeah once I got to thinking about it, depending on how you could load it (I'm still new to reloading), would it be similar to a 10mm?

Shadecorp. The .400 corbon. From what I remember, it was designed to give 10mm ballistics but could be chambered in a .45 ACP after a barrel change.

Reloading the 357sig is same as loading any bottleneck rifle cartridge. There will be trimming step involved and cases need to be lubed even with carbide dies.

How could anyone get bored at work? How about doing some work for a change? Grab a broom or a dust cloth and help the company out. People whine and moan because they don't have a job and then whine and moan when they do have one because they have to work.

I was wandering around picking up drink cups and pushing in chairs... I'm very thankful for my job and love it, but when there are no people in a casino and its your job to refill cash machines, it can get slow and boring...

40 super, 400 cor-bon, 10mm centaur.

If you can neck it up, down, blow it out or cut it shorter, it's probably
been tried at some time.
