    Mas,

    I know that many shooters like the Speer Gold Dot 125gr. .357sig ammo which travels at 1350 fps but I am interested
    in Corbon 125gr. 357sig ammo-heres the ballistics from this ammo-

    At CORBON, we believe that velocity is king! Higher energies enhance bullet performance and increase stopping power.
    Caliber: 357 Sig
    Bullet Wt.: 125gr CORBON Self-Defense JHP
    Velocity: 1425fps
    Energy: 564ftlbs
    Test Barrel Length: 4.0 Inches

    Mas- Do you have any knowledge on this ammo's performance in the streets?
    Thank-you for your time! :eagle:

    While some of Cor-Bon's loads have racked up truly spectacular results in actual shootings -- the 115 grain +P 9mm JHP and the 135 grain .40 JHP come to mind -- I haven't personally run across any shooting cases involving their .357 SIG ammo.

    Sorry I couldn't be more help,

    Mas

    Thank-yoy Mas!

    Its easy to get caught up in the velocity game!

    Does either or the Winchester Ranger T-125gr. .357sig or
    the Remington Golden saber 125gr. 357sig have any proven street perforances?
    Thank-you for helping me in finding a good .357sig ammo !

    Semper Fi to my wife & country!

    One large department recently reported excellent street results with the 125 grain Ranger-T to a trusted colleague of mine. The one Golden Saber Bonded 125 grain .357 SIG shooting I know of resulted in perfect performance. And of course, the widely used 125 grain Speer Gold Dot has long given stellar performance. Federal's HST in that loading is very promising but I don't have any street feedback on it yet.

    best,
    Mas

    Hi Mas!

    Thank-you for your knowledge!
    I have considered velocity & bullet configuration and decided on Doubletaps .357sig-125gr.!
    Doubletap uses Speer Gold in production of this ammo!
    Its velocity is 1450 out of a Sig 229!
    Its almost the weekend & my wife & I tend to do some shooting at our range !
    Enjoy your weenkend-Mas!
    Semper Fi to my wife!:eagle:
