Mas,
I have recently heard some recent second-hand reports of Pow-r-ball (likely 9mm, but I am not 100%) tumbling upon impact in SD shootings. Considering the reputation of this round as a consistent-opening one (combined with what I would think would be the very low likelyhood of a handgun round tumbling to begin with), I found this curious. Have you come across any similar reports, or does this sound like garbage?

Also, I just picked up a Glock 32 as a second EDC for when my H&K USP is a little too large to conceal. I also got a small quantity of both Ranger and Gold Dot JHP for this round, as they both have a reputation of great performance in the 9mm versions. Any thoughts on .357SIG SD ammo, or have I already made a great choice in either of those rounds?

Thanks in advance.

First I've heard of tumbling Pow'rBall. Not something I'd stay up nights worrying about.

Ranger and Gold Dot 125 grain JHP are both fine choices in a .357 SIG.

best,
Mas
