a/c, I try to limit myself to recommending loads whose results I've been able to research in actual field shootings.

In your chosen brand:

.357 SIG: Can't comment, haven't run across a shooting with Cor-Bon .357 SIG yet.

.45 ACP: My favorite in the line was the old 200 grain +P at 1050 feet per second. It was the first .45 JHP load I found that would expand to double width or better and still achieve adequate penetration. That was with the old Speer "flying ashtray" bullet. Not sure if C-B still has that round in the line.

9mm Luger: I'd definitely go with the 115 grain +P JHP. That Sierra bullet at 1350 was awesome for the caliber: 10" wound track, impressively wide. Still available.

.40 S&W: I was always impressed with the performance of the Cor-Bon 135 grain JHP at 1300 foot-seconds. Devastating wound channels, about 10" deep but even wider than the 9mm. South Bend, Indiana PD had outstanding luck with it in several shootings. Of the calibers you mention, in the Cor-Bon brand, this one would probably be my choice.

Your mileage, of course, may vary...and that's why things are so busy at the Caliber Corner section of Glock Talk.

Best,
Mas
