Congrats on a fine pistol. It is my preferred carry in 357. Sig say ammo that meets the SAMMI or what ever that spec quote is safe.About as clear as mud. I like Kenny's recommendation. Sorta like practicing full size 357 mag with mag loads. Use 38 spl to shoot and carry the mag for SD.

Well went to the range today and she shoot great thru the first mag. Put the 2nd mag in and about 4 shoots in it went click. Took the mag out to see if it was jammed nope cleared it put the mag back in ...click. So I loaded the first mag put that in and no probs at all. So I put the 2nd mag in and click again. I gave up on that mag and just used one with no issues at all. It shoots great.

Is mag #2 used?

On used mags, the spring can get weak if the mags are kept loaded all the time. It's a good idea to rotate your SD mags every month; and leave the others empty until you're about to visit the range.

Take the springs out of both mags and lay them side by side - if #2 is shorter than #1; there's your problem. Also, if it's used, take it apart and clean it. Magazines sometimes tend to get overlooked at cleaning time.

Edit: Oops - guess my question was answered while I was typing it.
