The link wouldn't download. Isn't the G31 frame the same size as the G22 .40 caliber?
Your .357 SIG re-loads, do you water them down, make them as hot as Underwood, or hotter?
I have been reading about how many people that re-load this ammo say it's VERY expensive. I want to get into re-loading one day when I go back to work. But, I think I will start with the cheaper ammo first, 9mm. I read that it's the most popular, and cheapest.
If I ever get cleared to actually go back to work I have a teaching job (pipe fitting/welding) waiting on me at the local Vo-Tech school over here (6.2 miles from my house). If the paperwork and the EPA "STUFF" ever clears, I can open my own business. I can sit behind a desk at this job. The PF/W job would be actual hands on. Then I can start re-loading ammo, buying more guns, start building engines again, find me a '69 Camaro and make a re-badged COPO, YENKO, or an RS/SS Z/28........

Yes; G17, G22, & G31 are all the same frame size.

I don't load anything hot. If I want more power I step up to something more powerful. .357 Sig ammo isn't expensive if you buy it online. Pretty easy to find it for around $16ish/50 rds. If you're limited to buying at local gun stores stay miles away from the .357. If you're just getting into pistols 9mm is the way.

Okay, back to the subject.
While in WM today, I was checking their ammo supply for .357 SIG ammo. They sell one brand, WWB, FMJ.
I keep checking SGAmmo.com for ammo but they are always out of JHP's. Does anyone know of another big ammo supplier that sells JHP .357 SIG ammo?

Blue, I am a fan of SGAmmo too, but when they don't have what I need I go here. They have a bunch of .357 Sig hollow points.

https://www.outdoorlimited.com/357-Sig-HANDGUN-PISTOL-Ammunition-for-Sale-s/1871.htm

The prices are smokin', the service is great too. Shipping is a bit high, but it still comes out as cheap or cheaper than SGAmmo because of the low prices. Just find the sweet spot in shipping.

I am still looking for Winchester Ranger-T 125 gr. SIG .357 ammo. I have put my e-mail address on several ammo sites that sell them to notify me when they come in. From what I understand, this is the old BLACK TALON rd. just without the black LUBALOX coating. In the pic you can see it's expanded to the diameter of a US dime. This is the ultimate personal defense round. I'm sure a few of you LEO have used the BLACK TALON ammo in the past. I wouldn't mind owning a box of them.

I'm not really a fan of it in this caliber, and much prefer Gold Dot due to the velocities involved and jacket separation and over-expansion as pictured. T-series has been eclipsed by the HST in other calibers, as well, IMO

You cannot get Black Talon in 357SIG, as 357SIG came about after the BT transferred into the T-series, as you note. I had a few boxes laying around, just never tested out as well as I liked.

Notice how the 9mm actually performs better in the T-series? It's just not constructed for 357SIG velocities. Also, as far as I know, they never went 4th? gen with the 357SIG. 3rd gen is where that loading stopped.

I already have some HST. I want some Ranger-T because my son and I are going to do a little bit of ballistic testing on our own.

I have some of that ammo. I carry Gold Dots. High velocity and super expandy bullets hurt penetration. You're probably better off going with the bullets that fragment and have a quick energy dump and multiple wound tracks. Now if that was all I had I'd happily carry it but it's no ultimate defense round lol.

My agency I retired from, Dallas Police, used this in 357 sig and 9mm. About a year ago they returned about $300,000 of it due to multiple defects. Lots of the .357 had bullets seated far too low that malfunctioned. We went to Hornaday.. That said, I have multiple boxes in 9mm that I'm not afraid of. I just think you can buy something else just as good.
