;2 AFTER NUMEROUS EMAILS, FAXES, AND MESSAGES LEFT ON ANSWERING MACHINES, S&B, AS OF THIS DATE, (07/22/05) HAS NOT MADE ANY TYPE OF CONTACT WITH ME IN REF. TO THE PROBLEM I HAVE WITH THEIR 357 SIG AMMO.:steamed:
My P229 has also been 100% reliable and I haven't tried it with my G31 yet.......Originally posted by guinnessdog
Bought a SIG 226 about a month ago, in about 500 rounds (burning up my remaining supply of the S&B crap) I have not had a single failure to fire. Maybe it's a tighter chamber, maybe harder firing pin hits, I don't know.
The S&B stuff does leave a lot of unburned powder (or some such debris) in the gun.
The SIG has been 100% reliable, by the way.
To quote a local gun shop owner referring to .357 SIG.... "It's a REAL SCREAMER!"I think you hit the nail on the head Clem.
After reading and thinking about it for some time now, I really think the .357 SIG is about the best autoloading pistol cartridge in the world. It's got high velocity and penetration in a small package with relatively modest recoil.
I'm 8-10x cycle at the moment. I still menage to recover aprox. 750 pieces. It looks that I'm go to go for additional 5-10 cycles. I generaly load at 9 mm Luger level.I'm in testing mode (G31)at the moment. I have reloaded 1000 pieces of once fired range pick-ups for the third time and it looks O.K.
But for the final word more testing is called for.
