    So my Glock 21 doesn't like underwood ammo... General Glocking Aug 3, 2014

  3. Good test, thanks.
     

  4. Thanks for the test. I really like UW ammo, especially 10mm 165g. I also love my P229 .357 SIG, so I'm going to try their .357 SIG also.

    Thanks for that. It's my prefered 357 Sig load.
     
  6. Those things are smokin' out of that G31 barrel!
     
  7. Nice work, thinks for info. I have been test my two 357 sigs as sports pistols on heal feral pigs. Pigs can be pretty tough. I have a 6" glocg with lone wolf barrel and a sig 229 5.5" barrel sports.

    I have gone to the 147 hard cast. Pushed along with good stiff load. As with any pistol. Ya got to knock the stuffing ok of them in the right place or you will have a hard time recovering then.

    I shoot smaller pig cause I am an old geezer. 357 sig works on sub 100#. Big ems too hard to get to truck.
     
  8. Just as the 357 SIG was intended :supergrin:

    Good test. Thanks.

    How is recoil with that load and the ported barrel?

    1550 FPS! What a great load!
     
  11. I don't have a 357 SIG ported barrel so I can't say. Sorry :dunno:

    But now that I think of it - Glock barrels always shoot faster than the advertised velocity.
     
  13. Not always. In fact not even half the time. I have had KKM, Lone Wolf and Stormlake barrels do better than the stock barrel.
     
  14. As always, nice video.

    I was thinking of the factory-supplied barrels from all gun-makers.
     
  16. Glock barrels don't shoot more than advertised. Most of the time without a good spring they actually unlock and drop a good bit. Just read Buffalo Bore's findings on that in their own G20.
