    Sig makes great handguns.....my #1 carry gun is a 220, .45 ACP, but I owned a 229 in .40 for awhile and think your choice is just fine!!! The Grayson County Sheriff's Dept. here uses the 229 in .357 Sig as their duty piece.

    From my experience, if you're planning on reloading, stick with 125 gr FMJ TC, and even then be prepared to do some tinkering. Finding a load for my son's SigPro was one of the more challenging reloading adventures, for me anyway.

    Great gun and Great cartridge. You can get a .40 S&W barrel to swap over with no modification and shoot BOTH from the same gun. It changes over in a minute. The recoil spring for the .357 Sig is one pound heavier than the .40, so installing a .40 barrel with that spring should give no trouble. You CANNOT form .357 SIg brass from .40 S&W and get brass that is of the proper length. It will result in brass that is too short and much of the .40 brass will not stand the pressure. There are some distinct differences in the case construction. See the link above.

    Not many kinds of ammo to chose from and all of it expensive plus it's not a 45.
