More/Less, it really is simply a fast 9 with inherently near perfect functioning characteristics in pistols. It has it's own line of 125gr bullets from most bullet manufacturers to handle the added velocity.
Yet it produces a little more recoil than 9mm and LE are still opting for it. Then again it doesn't recoil anymore than 40 (differently
no). I suppose muzzle flash at night isn't much of an issue anymore with the low flash powders availble today.
But still, why is LE popularity still growing with the 357SIG? Are they seeing a difference in physical wounding characteristics? We do in animals, so I suppose we do in humans too.
Is it proving to stop fights faster? What's giving this little round so much clout? Anybody know anything definitive?
In Arizona you can get virtually as much of it as you want at just about any Walmart when everything else is sold out. Though most of the Walmarts are still limiting us to 6 boxes per day.
where do you see evidence of "growing popularity"?
not a rhetorical question, I'm genuinely curious.
