I just shot my SP2022 with the 357Sig barrel yesterday, for the first time... Between the 40 S&W and the 357 Sig, I thought the 357 Sig had a much nicer feel. It was short and fast, yet not violent or painful, with less muzzle climb than the 40. If there was not such a huge price difference in ammo prices, I would shoot the 357 Sig almost exclusively than the 40 S&W. It seemed like the 357 Sig shot lower than the 40. Hope this helps.

Agreed the 357 Sig seems to shoot a lot easier/softer. A lot more accurate in my opinion also.

if you know how to hold a pistol correctly .357sig is just as manageable as a +p 9mm. I would carry and shoot my .357sig except the ammo is still stupid expensive. 9mm is plenty powerful and if one understands hydrostatic shock then they would know why. The thing with .357sig is it's a real barker. (Meaning it's loud) Most new shooters will always tend to shoot low with it because they get scared of it. ...even if they don't realize it.

This shooter isn't a new shooter and wasn't scared of the noise... and neither is my buddy who worked weapons training at our Sheriff's Department. We both shot lower than shooting the 40 S&W. My theory is, 40 S&W has more muzzle climb than the 357 Sig, resulting in a higher shot grouping.

Police seem to like the .357.
