The same load in 9mm +P seems to be pretty decent, but I have heard reports of the 9mm version not expanding, and tumbling instead. Never saw anything to back up those rumors, though. For 357SIG, I would stick to Ranger and Gold Dot - both seem to be fine against heavy clothing. 357SIG is already known for being able to reliably feed pretty much any kind of ammo, thereby negating the other advantage of Pow-R-Ball - more reliable feeding in guns that dont like standard JHP.
