Although I have all the major brands of SD ammo for the 357 SIG, I am partial to the HST.
However I bet that no matter which one of the major SD rounds I were to use if needed on a bad guy, The bad guy would not know the difference.
As long as I did my part and put the bullet in a center mass area or head shot.

I see no point pushing .357 Sig to extreme pressures. By virtue of necking a .40 to 9mm, it's already achieved velocity and energy with even the lower pressure offerings.

The only consideration for me is reliability, with controllability alongside. I don't train with minimum power cartridges then load up nuclear ammunition for carry. No need.

I don't particularly care if it expands much, either. I'll take penetration over expansion any day.
