I have the new style 250c ... Love it ..,trigger takes some getting used to..Revolver like.. When you do its really quite accurate!! I have had zero malfunction of any kind of ammo. 1000+ rds. I have never tried steel ammo though.. WWB, Federal, UMC and Sellier all flawless

Well I'm use to shooting revolvers that's one reason I liked it. It's comfortable to me. I was nervous after I bout it because of bad reviews but finally figured out it was the first model. I've only shot a mag full of ammo out of it. It felt good shooting.

I have a P250c 40sw and I've shot Rem, Win and Fed ammo. 1200 rounds and not a hiccup. Great gun but I wish the trigger is a little shorter stroked.

I always shoot at 25-30 feet and it's accurate enough to make a BG sweat. :p

Yeah trigger is long but it doesn't really bother me

Ive fed all sorts of ammo through a SIG P250, SP2022, and P229 with no issues. They are extremely consistent and reliable firearms. Hope you enjoy yours!

I agree... My groups open up quite a bit after 15yds. They still all hit torso area.. But 4-5" apart. I honestly doubt I would shoot anybody 25yds. Even if I could my state would prosecute me for not retreating! :(

Retreating means turning your back on the threat. I won't do that.

My son has one. I've been with him and shot a couple different types of commercial hollow point ammo (Winchester 147 HP sub sonic and something else - I think Federal 125 grain HP) and my NATO equivalent reloads. No problems in firing or functioning, and they all seem to group adequately well.

I deem it 'usable'.

The 250 does group well but you have to do your part. Couple of days ago I shot my Sigma 9mm and my Sig P250 40sw. 50 rounds of UMC HPs for each gun. I usually grouped better with my 9mm but not this time, the 40 did better and I wished I brought my camera but I'm sure I can do it again.

I've been working with my trigger control and my handholds. The trigger control I got it down pat and a small adjustment with my left hand had made a world of difference. My 40 was lot steadier then and I was able to aim for the upper chest, neck and head and hit 'em.

It was a good day. :)

Oh yeah, I was shooting at 25 feet.
