This round has me intrigued.

http://www.hornady.com/store/357-Sig-147-gr-XTP/

It has a published muzzle velocity of 1225 fps.

Does anyone have any experience with it or know where any terminal performance testing can be found?

I was able to find this test on YouTube.

This is the Gold Dot test from the same person.

Not sure I see a compelling reason to change, but I think I might buy a couple of boxes to play with.

1225 fps is really slow for 357 Sig. Im getting right at 1,500 fps with underwood ammo.

1225 fps would be slow for 125 gr. 357 SIG. For a 147 gr. bullet that's pretty fast. I think it's at least 250 fps faster than most 147 gr. 9mm ammo.

357 Magnum is commonly available in both 125 gr. and 158 gr. weights and 147 gr. 9mm ammo is also common, but you hardly ever see 357 SIG with bullets heavier than 125 gr.

Basically, I'm wondering how the trade off of speed for weight would affect terminal performance.
