I’ve always wondered about a hot 357 SIG. I have never fired that round in any make of gun.
It's not quite as bad as .40 S&W when I run AW Sig barrels in my G35's but I'm comparing .40 165 gr. at 1060 fps/180 gr. at 990 fps against Sig 125 gr. at 1350 fps. Both these .40's thump a tic harder than the Sig. Underwood has some Sig 125 gr. at 1475 fps, but it still shoots softer than my G41 with WWB plinkers. .357 Sig is not the recoil monster some say it is but it can be hard on the ears without protection, but hell, .40 S&W is too.I’ve always wondered about a hot 357 SIG.

Snappy is a term used by people who are recoil sensitive, and have most likely have never shot a 41 or 44 magnum revolver, to describe a very modest amount of recoil that falls far below the threshold of pain. Glocks have a wide grip that distributes recoil forces over a larger area of the hand and the polymer frame absorbs a certain amount of recoil."Snap"? "Snappiest"? WTH, is that an engineering term? WTH does that MEAN? Define it.
Yea, you could fan my Redhawk 7".44. You ain't fanning my 4" Tracker with the same ammo.Recoil either hurts or it isn't worth mentioning. Shooting an airweight J frame 357 magnum hurts like a MoFo but shooting the same ammo out of an N Frame 357 isn't like shooting a real magnum that begins with the number four.
I have a 357 Sig Barrel for my Glock 23 which is the same size as the Glock 19 and the Glock 32 which is chambered for 357 Sig.I’ve always wondered about a hot 357 SIG. I have never fired that round in any make of gun.
