  3. ...that it does not do,,,, but energy wise its neck and neck with 357

    what do your 158 grainers come in at energy wise?

    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...

    Yep, in that test. I've really been wanting to use one of these > :popcorn:
     
  12. No it doesn't.:whistling:

  14. 789!? i wouldnt want to be on the receiving end of that:faint::wow:
     
  15. 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.

    Berto woo woo

  17. 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.
     
  18. Underwood's .357 Sig JHPs are 125 grain at 1475 FPS...604 ft/lbs.

    Just sayin'.:whistling:

    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.
