From a article titled:
Ten Top Self-defense Ammo Picks

He talks about specific loads in specific calibers until he gets to the 357Sig where he states this:
357 SIG almost anything
If you push a marshmallow fast enough, it could blow up (okay, maybe seriously damage) a tank. .357 SIG fires a 9mm bullet anywhere from 1,300 to 1,600 feet per second. Most hollow point bullets can’t help but expand when moving that fast—barriers or no barriers.

Of particular interest, check out the CorBon 125-grain DPX load. I tested this one through two layers of heavy boot leather and multiple layers of fabric and the solid copper projectiles still expanded beautifully.

One drawback is the muzzle blast and recoil. It’s snappy.

Just as a side note, if you shoot a .357 SIG hollow point at a huge glass jar of grape jelly, it will vaporize.
