Went out today, indoor range shot holes in paper only.
Put about 1/2 box of Federal 125 grain thru the G33, shot real nice.
Put about 1/2 box of double tap 125 FMJ thru it, much more kick, can't wait to chrono it, shot real nice, very hot load !!!
Swapped out to the 40 barrel, put 50 blazer FMJ's thru it I think 155 grain. This was the first time I used the 40 barrel, and only the third time I took the gun out. Shooting the 40 at first felt like a bb gun, I was just comming off the double tap 357 remember.
Anyhow after that I swapped barrels back and put some double tap 357 gold dots thru it. Hello !!!!
After all that I picked up my 9 and shot some white box 115, now that was like, oh man is this even going off. I can't wait to chrono this 357 stuff and shoot up some things ( like phone boooks, cans of water etc. ) to compare the different loads. So far I love this thing !!

Simply no comparison. I shot 2 boxes of Double Tap in my Sig 229, my 239 and my G32...it fed without a hitch and the accuracy and velocity are impressive. It felt like I had a real .357 S&W Magnum in my hands! When the weather gets nice I'll run some over my chrony...but for the time being all I can say this stuff is hot. Not dangerously so...but its potent stuff. If you have the jack and can afford to feed your guns a steady diet of DT, I recommend going to a heavier recoil spring. Speer GD loads pale in comparison!
McNett will be getting my order for 500 rounds at the end of the month!

Alright, you've got me thinking...so it's ok to use DT exclusively? Stupid question perhaps, but is there any particular wear I need to worry about, or use stronger recoil springs?

Your standard springs will function perfectly. I like the feel of the 20lb. spring in my G32.

This ammo is very hot

I had the chance to chrono DT .357 in two guns today. One was a Glock 35 with a factory length Jarvis .357Sig barrel, the other was a Sig P239 so that is probably a good representation of the fastest and slowest handgun performance in the caliber. As a benchmark for today’s results I also fired and measured some regular off the shelf Speer brand 125gr gold dots.

February 27, 2005, Altitude 900 ft. Temp=47deg F, RH =88%,Barometer: 29.79, overcast, Time 13:30 CST. All statistics for 6 rounds fired

Double Tap 125gr. Gold Dot Hollowpoint, .357 Sig, lot number 00206, dated 1/5/2005

Glock 35 (Jarvis)
Average =1594
High = 1622
Low = 1586
ES = 36
SD = 14

Sig P239
Average =1445
High = 1478
Low = 1423
ES = 55
SD = 17

Speer Gold Dot 125gr .357 Sig, lot number #23918

Glock 35 (Jarvis)
Average =1450
High = 1459
Low = 1438
ES = 21
SD = 9

Speer Gold Dot vs. Double Tap
Aside from Chrono, has anyone performed certified 25 yard accuracy tests between the two specific ammunitions using Glocks in .357Sig . If so, which Glock models and what were the statistical outcomes? - - - Please point me to the tests, if available.

Thanks,
Glockguy

I just took the plunge and ordered my first two boxes of Double Tap in .357 Sig. Can't wait to try it out, especially when that new G32 finally gets here.

Finally ordered some Double Tap in FMJ so added it to peviously listed....... list. I can't seem to find a website for Lancer ammo any more. That's too bad - it was really good stuff also!

The Double Tap website claims virtually no flash and I can report back that they are right on with that claim. I was particularly worried about flash because I have a ported 357 Sig barrel that I dropped in to my Glock 35. That is to be my trail gun. So, muzzle flash could be a real problem in low-light with my ported "magnum force". Though I didn't have any Speer to demo, I can tell you the Double Tap FMJ and Gold Dot both have almost no flash.

EDIT 03-13-2006:
I recently tried the Double Tap Gold Dot out doors, at night, under a bright moon. This situation was considerably darker than my earlier test. There _is_ quite a flash from the port as one would expect but it was a deep orange color and did not affect my vision, or my friend's vision when he tried it. However as a comparison I tried some CCI Blazer 45ACP from a 1911; its large white muzzle flash drastically affected my vision. I suppose the deep orange flash is like having a red filtered flashlight. That would explain why it didn't impair my ability to make hits on a steel plate the size of the IDPA 0 ring at 18-20 yards.

I'm almost positive that I'll be changing from 125 GD's to 147 DT's as soon as Mike gets that load out.

Hey guys--never tried doubletap here. Seems a lot of you like it. What about recoil ? how about rapid fire accuracy because I assume the extra FPS comes from higher loads. I've noticed the big guys like Win, Rem, Speer and Federal are going ultra conservative on their loads so is there a downside?

I've bought about 3 cases from Double Tap, 45,40,357sig, nothing but excellent. I call my g33 with his loads "MIGHTY MOUSE", alot more controlable then a short wheel gun. Barstow barrel and Hienie straight 8's.
