Ammo is no more expensive than shooting a .357 or .44 Magnum.
Double Tap, Cor-Bon and others offer a Barnes XPB solid copper hollow-point in .357 SIG.
Tac-XP, DPX or other names. As it has high velocity, low recoil and delicious accuracy, not
to mention, superb tactical penetration in most testing.
The only real drawback to the Barnes bullet, is expense. Copper cost more than lead.
However, you have no need to shop for bonded or non-bonded bullets as there is
no bonding or jacket to shed. You get 100% weight retention and usually perfect
expansion. Some have even shot through leather- and achieved this uniform expansion!
Loads like the (2) .357 SIG Gold Dots seem to get the nod with most new shooters, but the XPB is catching on fast with
savvy hand gunners, and for use in their rifles as well!
I would really like to see a 125 grain TAC-XP .357 SIG load from Double Tap.
Some people are just convinced that "125" is the magic number for .357 SIG.
