.357 sig

similar to a 9mm bullet on a neck down .40S&W casing. it has pretty good ballistics and does pretty good damage. I really like it as a defense round, but the ammo is a little expensive for plnking.

.357 sig pistols

any gun that is chambered for .357 sig. A lot of gun manufacturers make weapons in this caliber. glock makes 3 for example.

.357 sig

reaper pretty much summed it up for you, and in my opinion its pretty much a fast 9mm or a magnumized 9mm, ive shot a subcompact glock 33 out in the country and we shot at my friends old rusty trucks, the .357 sig rounds penetrated the heavy truck doors like its paper, as to my .45 acp glock 21sf only left big holes.

my question is, whats got better stopping power, .357 sig or .45 acp?

stopping power is a loose term. It is the old bullet weight vs. velocity argument. Below are examples of a couple of corbon's JHP loads. As you can see the .357sig reaches much higher velocities than the .45+P load and even delivers more energy at impact, but it is also a 125gr. bullet vs. a 185gr. bullet.

357 SIG 125 GR. JHP 1425 FPS 564 FTLBS

45 AUTO +P 185 GR. JHP 1150 FPS 543 FTLBS

check out this gel comparison that freedom uploaded.

notice the wound channel on the .357sig, vs. .45 (not a +P load). Both bullets penetrated similar and created a large channel. I really like the .357sig round for defense. the high speed it reaches can really cause some damage

gotta agree with ya, but i would prefer my g21sf over a g32 or g33 on defense, the compact size of the g32 cant control the recoil, i wouldnt know about thee g31 though.
