I will have to shoot at least 300 rounds without a hiccup before I'd feel comfortable carrying it at this point. This experience just goes to prove how critical it is to test HP carry loads as well as practice loads... you just never know.

Now I just need to find 300 reasonably priced .357 sig rounds.
Underwood ammo. I use them for target and self defense rounds. Both have been flawless and powerful loads. The self defense rounds are new cases.
