    Found .357 sig frangible Remington range ammo at Ammoman, $450.00 per 1000, seems petty good price these days and it's in stock.

    Who makes this ammo? I've never shot frangible but at $22.50/per 50 rounds it seems reasonable for the current ammo drought.

    It's Remington "disintegrator" range ammo. I've used several variations of the frangible stuff and am very pleased.

    I wonder what this ammo would do on the steel angle iron back stops at some indoor ranges? Fall apart?

    Yes sir, that's what it is designed to do, also lead free as I recall.

    Lead free? I wonder what they use for the bullet composition?

    The bullet on these type rounds is compressed metal powder with a copper plated surface, it withstands firing, this round at about 1350fps, duplicates duty loads recoil wise as best as possible and maintains frangibility on hard surfaces. You could shoot the steel close up and not get a ricochet.

    The first link is WAY overpriced for factory 2nds (rejects), i.e., pushing $40 a box.

    The 2nd link....so soon has everyone forgot they are trying to price "gouge". See their 9mm HST prices. :upeyes:

    Screw 'em.

    I wonder just how someone could sell factory seconds on something like ammunition? What next, factory seconds on prescription drugs?

    I was looking through my ammo closet the other day and came across some 357Sig "canned heat" ammo cans from Georgia arms with a listed price of $95 per 500 and 10mm for $120. Those were the days.

    The cheapest I've ever seen the Remington 125-grain .357sig Golden Saber Bonded was $32+/box of 50 and that was several years ago. If I was desperate for JHP self-defense ammo I'd buy some at $39/box of 50. Maybe this is a sign that supply is going to start becoming available again.

    I have 3000 of the rem .357sig frangible bullets that I got a very good deal on a while back. The bullet profile is not ideal for .357sig even though they say they are for .357sig. Thus they are succeptable to setback, however for range use they are fine. Remington only really makes one bullet suitable for the .357sig and that is in their golden sabre bonded round.

    Bought some towards the end of last year at $31.95 per 50.

    Ammotogo had upped their price LONG before the Sandy Hook deal. GSB, HST was $40 per 50 for quite some time now.

    The .357sig is a round that should be reloaded because it right at the cost of reloading 9mm.

    That's right - reload to save a lot of waiting time and money.

    If the frangible round replicates typical .357sig range ammo then at today's prices I would consider it a good deal.

    Also, I have ten rounds of some old Remington green/white box 125-grain JHP in .357sig that seems to have disappeared from production, but from the few Internet sites I've located the round performs very well. As is my normal practice I save at least ten or more of every JHP self-defense rounds I buy in the off chance I may need them at some point, unless the ammo fails to perform as expected.

    This is just a way to get .357 Magnum 125gr SJHP ballistics in an autoloading handgun.
