Left a message though IQMetals contact and they actually called me today. They wanted to clear up the confusion so I explained to them as above. They didn't realize the picture was wrong so took it down from the site. However they did say that this was not the 124g plated flat point OR the hollow points but 125gr TMJ (speer?) They were very nice to deal with! I had them ship it to me!

all as seen here.
And...they are on the way! The list continues to climb.
Just got an e-mail from Good To Go Ammo. They are backlogged three to four weeks Funny though...their site says it is In Stock

Well here is an update:
1.) Got another call from IQmetal - they couldn't find this (mythical?) box of Hunting Shack 125g TMJ - so they sent me a 50 round box of CCI Speer - GDHP's. So, nothing to add to the list but I got a good deal on a box of Speer GD's! Thanks to IQmetal for good customer service.
2.) No word from Good to Go Ammo on the Barnes TAC-XP.
3.) No word from Custom Cartridge on the two loads I ordered from them.
4.) Grizzly Cartridge site says they have shipped my order but no tracking number.

So we shall see. I may be chasing "vaporware" at this point....

List on page 1 updated to read:

54.) Grizzly Cartridge Company - 124g - FMJ-FP
55.) Grizzly Cartridge Company - 147g - JHP


The 125g JHP load was actually the same 124g load that I already own - it is apparently a misprint on the website.
Here is a (poor) photo of the family:

The list is now at 122! We will see what happens with the others.....

Well, A LOT has happened since my last post on this thread -- BUT, in the midst of it all, I have another load on the way!!
It is a 125g - JHP load From Dead Zero Ammunition as seen here http://www.gunbroker.com/Auction/Vie...Item=326167862

and/or here http://www.deadzeroammo.com/

I spoke with the gentleman on the phone - he is a super nice guy and of course is Swamped like soo many these days. He shoots this round himself - After converting a Beretta 96, he never went back to .40
I will add it to the list, of course....when I get my hot little hands on it. It will be #124!!!!

Had to celebrate my 1000th post with an ammo order: This one Load-X 115gr JHP as seen here:

http://www.venturamunitions.com/cate...-for-sale.html

This will be load #125!!!

No word from Custom Cartridge (from Nov 30th, 2012 order) - this is my second big ol' strike-out with them.

Thank You sir! Not a big poster - as you can see, it took me 12 years to get here! Never thought the list would be such an on-going project. When I bought my first pistol chambered in 357 Sig in 1999, there were only about 8 loads (that I knew of). Of course, most said the 357 Sig would never last, but I will probably be adding to the list next year when we celebrate the 20th year of the 357 Sig!!
At this point though, I only know of about two -possibly- three more out there!

well...there are many of us who really appreciate the effort!

I recently traded my nephew my SiG Pro SP2340 in 357 SiG along with a perfect P225 for his P226 SCT in .40 S&W...of course, I immediately replaced the barrel with a new P226 in 357 SiG...I need to get more trigger time on it...

Well, since my last post, I have come across some interesting leads! One is a "new old stock " situation with a loading that is not made any more - one is a "exotic" round - and another is a custom ammo place that I have just never stumbled upon before. ( DANG!!) Because of all the current craziness, who knows when OR IF I will be able to lay my hands on these. Anyway, there are maybe now five to six loads to pursue!!

Another load on the way! This one from the "custom ammo place" I mentioned above. It is a 125g FMJ load from Precision One Ammo - a group down in South Carolina. Their Web-site is here:

http://www.precisiononeammunition.co...or_maintenance

but is is down temporarily due to the current craziness!!
This will probably get here before the Load-X order.
The "new old stock" item mentioned above is probably gonna be outta my reach - it is on auction and getting a little rich for my blood...

List on page 1 updated to read:

91.) Precision One Ammunition - 125g - FMJ

And that brings the list to 125!!

TOP GUNS *357 Sig* Club

A couple of bummer things to report.
1.) I was NOT able to get the "new old stock" stuff. It was Firefrangible ammunition from Precision Ammunition as seen here:
http://www.officer.com/product/10045...ble-ammunition
2.) I found out that Atlanta Arms and Ammo no longer loads the 357Sig - BUMMER, as I really liked their stuff! Anyway, they got the dreaded **. I also removed their link and replaced them with Dead Zero Ammunition.
3.) When I buy ammo, the first box always goes thru my P229. Then I save the empty box and the rest is up for grabs for my other 357sig pistols. Well, somewhere along the line I mistook a box of CCI Speer Lawman Cleanfire for a regular box of Lawman - shot it up and threw the box away! And in these crazy days, it is hard to replace.
Well, Load-X is on its way to me now so expect another update soon!!

Think I finally located the RUAG frangible ammo - so that will be load 127 when it gets here. I have two others out there, in my sights, that I have been too cheap to pull the trigger on.....

Another load on the way...this one is Remington Disintegrator 100 grain Sintered Frangible Round. I have the other Disintegrator round from Remington which is the 104 grain Plated round.
I will add it to the list when it comes in.
Missed out on a COP (Copper Only Projectile) loading. I am just like a fisherman - the ones that get away bother me

104.) Remington Disintegrator CTF - 100g - Frangible

That brings the list up to 128!! Some pics

TOP GUNS *357 Sig* Club

In both pictures, on the left is the PLATED Disintegrators at 104gr. The box on the right is the new to me load (bullets not plated) You may be able to tell the plated bullet looks a little more shiny. Sorry for the poor cell phone pics!

clarkz71,

Thanks for the lead... I will have to order a box and get it on the list. That stack of eight boxes looks great!!

I have a couple more loads coming to add to the list: The first is a Magsafe 45g SWAT load as seen here: http://magsafeonline.com/prices_specs.php

45 grains going at 2550 fps?!! This will be the lightest load on the list now..... surpassing RBCD's 60g loading. (The other end of the spectrum in the 180g DoubleTap load.)

The other load on the way is the new Ventura Tactical load as seen here: http://www.venturamunitions.com/vent...tc-250-rounds/

I did miss out on another load.... I hesitated (again) and lost(again) - it was another exotic load.... similar to this (but in 357sig of course):
http://clarkcustomcartridge.com/inde...3219cd0564c9c4

I will update the list as items arrive!

Thanks for all the work you've put into this thread.

I'm new to the .357 Sig club but really like the round

Got my 32 barrel last month for my G23.
