Good Day

My question relates to the 357sig vs the 9mm. Now please understand I am not looking for a Caliber war,just some expert claification. A 357 sig is a 9mm bullet being pushed by powder in a case that is the size of the .40 cal. SO WHAT WE HAVE here is a 9mm bullet being pushed with the powder that pusges a 40cal (does this make sense)Would it make sense that the 357 is superior to the 9mm? in other threads some GT members push the 9mm as a round that is equal to the 357 and with +P 9mm rounds it may even be better. I just think that if you look at the 357sig and whay it was developed it would be easy to understand why this round is superior to the 9mm. Your thoughts??
Thanks

Yes, it goes a little somthin' like this 9x25 > 357SIG > 9mm > 380ACP. The same bullet can be loaded in all four; the big difference is velocity.

Agree.
One can always cherry-pick one load to exceed another.
.357 Sig was built by Federal and Sig to duplicate the .357 mag. at 125 grs.
That is it.

The .357 Sig does that in a high capacity auto loader.
It has also done well through vehicle glass and doors.

US Secret Service picked it.

Magic bullet--heck no.
No handgun is.
IMHO:supergrin:

Thanks Gentlemen.
I have a G32 on order, should see it by mid Feb. Massachusetts is NOT gunfriendly, so it takes a while to get one. I plan on this being my NEW carry weapon. This will be my 6th glock and hopefully it will be as reliable and accurate as my others (Including my G36).
Thanks again

The above is false.

You can't really push the 9mm to safely reach 357sig vel. You can get close w/ overpressure +P+ loads, but will still be short. The 3567sig vs 9mm is like the 38sp vs 357mag. Is it better, if you can deliver the rounds on target & depending on the bullet design, yep.
