I read 2 question there.
1. The 357SIG uses bullets that are the same diameter as 9mm bullets--0.355" or 0.3555". It does NOT use 0.357"-diameter bullets, and that's why it's incorrect to label it .357SIG
as some do. (I tell people that the 357SIG cartridge could have been correctly named the 9mm SuperMag
2. Speer labeled that 125g. bullet for the 357SIG because it's the 6-petal version that's built for the higher velocity of the 357SIG...I believe
