I just received a notification from SGAmmo.com about .357 SIG HST 125 gr. ammo is back in stock, 50 rds. $26.95. Before I buy this ammo, I saw a posted review on SGAMMO about it getting stuck in the barrel of an M&P gun. I will post his review and the answer from another member. I then want opinions from those of you that have shot this ammo. BTW, I own an M&P FS .40 with the .357SIG barrel that drops into the M&P.

Customer Reviews by Anonymous - 2017-11-02 03:13 XXXXXXXXX , You Need to Buy a real Gun, A Smith and Wesson M&P Is nothing more than an Expensive Paperweight, They have had serious issues with all there handguns. You need to Buy a Glock. The Ammo- I have carried these Rounds for 15 + Years and fired Over 15k Of them though the same gun, Barrel, Springs Ect. I have never had a Stove Pipe, Jam or Misfeed. I trust my Life to these Rounds , and So does my Wife to Protect Our Children. Personally I think Russell Is having Operator Error , Its not the Bullets Its the User.
I have a Smith and Wesson M & P 40\357 sig. This gun has run over 1500 rounds without one single failure to fire failure to feed failure to eject. This federal HST 357 Sig over expands and every single round has stuck in barrel causing failure to eject and jamming Have tried three different magazines same problem. Spear lawman has been flawless as have Remington rounds. All 40 caliber ammo is eaten up flawlessly so I know it is the federal HST But that is why we go to the range Glad to find out before I trusted it in a life-threatening situation SNG service and delivery spectacular as always
SR5, this is one of my favorite .357 SIG ballistic gel tests. Esp. since it's HST ammo All of you that replied with the positive responses, THANK YOU! I like HST ammo A LOT! And, I have been waiting a long time for SGAmmo to get this 50 rd. box in stock. But, I had NEVER seen that review until today. I have ordered a box and am thinking positive about it.
Federal HST is excellent ammo. I've got quite a bit of it, and in shooting over a thousand rounds of it, granted in 9mm, I have not had a single malfunction.
You have no idea if this reviewer knows anything about his gun, cleans it regularly, or even shoots properly. Limp-wristing can cause malfunctions in a semi-auto pistol. Who knows what happened with this clown?
Only way for you to be certain if the HST is right for you is to test it yourself. Buy some, not a little, but a lot, and shoot it.
If I owned a .357 Sig, the HST would be at the top of my list.
