Hang out for here for a while. 357 sig and 357 magnum are two toally different cartridges.

I love the marketing ploy Sig used with the naming of the cartridge. They duped sooo many people (including Texas DPS). I have even heard Troopers call it their .357 Magnum Sig pistol.

Educate yourself about firearms before even handling one, much less buying one. To call it a .357 at all is a joke. The .357 Mag uses .358" diameter bullets. The Sig round uses .355 or .356" diameter bullets. .001 or .002 is a huge difference in ammunition.

Now that I think of it, I hope the original poster was joking.
In life, strive to take the high road....It offers a better field of fire.
