The Double Tap Ammo company's 115 gr. .357 SIG Gold Dot was last offered in 2009.

It's now available as the identical Bonded Defense JHP
that uses the Gold Dot bullet.

A bit lighter than the firm's 125 gr. Bonded Defense
load.

This load has an advertised velocity of:

1550fps / 614 ft. lbs. 4"bbl

With these numbers for other barrel lengths:

3.5" barrel - 1494fps
4.5" barrel - 1612fps

http://i204.photobucket.com/albums/bb26/czrami/DOUBLE%20TAP%20357%20SIG/DT357_AUG/DT357med.jpg

It should be a real screamer if it is as hot as the
NOSLER 115 grain load at:
1550fps / 614 ft. lbs. 4"bbl
http://i204.photobucket.com/albums/bb26/czrami/DOUBLE%20TAP%20357%20SIG/dt-nos2.jpg
3.5" barrel - 1494fps
4.5" barrel - 1612fps

That load exhibits some muzzle flash, but a lot of bang.
Noticeably- faster than the 125s and 147s/

Note, that like Nosler load, the once again available DT 115 gr.
uses a flash supressed powder for virtually no muzzle flash
as well.

Both should remain the fastest in the DT .357 SIG line,
except for the DT 80 gr. Barnes TAC-XP:


1725fps / 529 ft. lbs. 4.25"

3.5" barrel - 1600fps
4.5" barrel - 1755fps

( the load I carry in my RAMI P)

And have some appeal to those looking for truly smoking hot
.357 SIG ammo.
