    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.

    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.

    Good test. Thanks.

    How is recoil with that load and the ported barrel?

    But now that I think of it - Glock barrels always shoot faster than the advertised velocity.

    Not always. In fact not even half the time. I have had KKM, Lone Wolf and Stormlake barrels do better than the stock barrel.

    I was thinking of the factory-supplied barrels from all gun-makers.

    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.
