Does it shoot 158 grainers at 1500fps?

Man, you're probably gonna get lit up soon. You might wanna just go look at .357 mag energy numbers at UW or Buff Bore...

And per usual with 9mm bullets pushed beyond their velocity limits, the penetration sucks.

Also, 501 ft/lbs doesn't come close to full power .357 Magnum loads. Shoot some 125gr Buffalo Bore .357 loads @ 1700 fps and tell me if these 115gr Underwood loads come close. I'll save you the time: they don't.

Sorry, this thread is a fail.

Corbon used to load a 115gr +P+ .38sp that did over 1400fps in a 4" revolver.
They also loaded a +P 110gr .38sp that did over 1410fps in a snubby...

Those Underwoods are hot, but it's been done before in 9mm and .38sp.

I would love to know what kind of powder Kevin is using in those. I wonder what they could run a 38 super up to if they tried.

Underwood's .357 Sig JHPs are 125 grain at 1475 FPS...604 ft/lbs.

Just sayin'.

That said, pretty impressive for 9mm!

My Gp100 just threw some handload 158gr bullets an average of 1535 fps for 827 ft-lbs of energy. Compared to the fast 115gr 9mm, it's 40+ grains heavier yet still faster, has considerably better sectional density and will penetrate a lot better as well. The 9mm is a good option, but it's not a .357 Magnum.

1430 FPS from a G19? It likely hits 1500 from a G17. Awesome.

You are quite correct, sir. A casual examination of the cartridge cases confirms this.

When I was new to firearms (not that long ago) I got caught up in velocity/energy numbers without knowing that it's the total cartridge and bullet design that creates effectiveness.

I feel quite comfortable with 9mm for self-defense and although I am currently carrying a +P round I also would feel good about carrying a standard pressure round like HST or Gold Dot, among others.

Energy seems to be the real key to stopping power.

A .357 SIG, or .357 Magnum that has only 200 foot pounds of energy would be a dismal stopper.

I don't care who it is, or how hard they try - they'll never get the 9x19 cartridge to propel a 158gr SJHP at 1400-1500 FPS. The barrel length won't matter, either.
