...but it seems to be happening again. For 2 years now, Winchester Ranger has been my go-to load for 357SIG. Time has come to order more carry ammo, and rotate what's in my carry mags, and I am starting to second guess my choice of load. The ~12" penetration (or slightly less in some tests) of the Ranger load concerns me, because it's just barely reaching the minimum. Am I being paranoid about this? I'm seriously considering a switch to Gold Dots, which offer significantly more penetration at a slight cost of expansion. Thoughts? Wanna kill these ads? We can help!
