Isn't this the sort of thing you should sort out before buying the item?
This will probably annoy the .357 Sig lovers, but here goes: The .357 Sig is a boutique cartridge that really isn't a huge improvement over existing chamberings. It's costs a lot more than 9mm ammo, for not a lot more performance. At least not enough more to justify the significant cost increase. Then there's the fact that, even it times of plenty, .357 Sig ammo isn't exactly plentiful. Thus, among people who don't have a govt agency buying their ammo, it really hasn't caught fire.

Calling the .357 Sig a necked down .40 S&W isn't entirely accurate, but it's close enough that gets the point across.
