Anyone know of a source? I cannot find this stuff anywhere... online or otherwise.

In case anyone hasn't seen this video... it's pretty cool. Speer Gold Dot 357sig:

seen the gold dot vid, its impressive...

you pulled the pic from hornady.com?
http://www.hornadyle.com/products/more_detail.php?id=128&sID=106&pID=1

if thats the case, those velocities are pretty low for a sig, 1319fps.. with 124gr
any XTP load tap or reg;

should reach that velocity and terminal performance.
Fiocchi lists 1500fps with the same 124xtp, but thats out of a 5" barrel, probably closer to 1425 ish out of a 4"...

however, LE ammo usually has tighter quality control, and may have better low flash powders...ect. this could apply to the tap ammo vs reg hornady xtp line.

The Fiocchi 124XTP cartridge didn't get anywhere near 1500FPS (or 1425, either) in my test. From my 4.5" barrel, at 10', average velocity was only 1327FPS (or 1306 from a different chronograf). See http://glocktalk.com/forums/showthread.php?t=1229053

Are you sure it was the TAP ammo? Their web site doesn't list any TAP in .357SIG in stock.

Yup. It was the TAP stuff. I remember because they also had it for the 10mm which surprised me!

Hmm...Hornady lists no FTX-bulleted cartridges for the 357SIG under either the caliber...
http://www.hornady.com/store/357-Sig/

...or Critical Defense...

Nothing for 10mm either.
