PostSubject: New Sig Pistol   February 25th 2016, 12:36 pm

I got a new pistol yesterday. The Kel-Tec is real light and easy to carry but 9mm just seems kind of puny to me so I got a Sig-Sauer P239. Real steel not plastic/polymer. I got a good deal on it too. Saved $240+ on it. I got an interchangeable .40 S&W barrel to go along with the .357 Sig. It shoots real nice without a lot of recoil.

I think I'm going to love this gun.







(The photos are showing up when I preview it but not in the post. Don't know where the problem is.)

I think you will, too. 

Pound for pound, my SIG is my best handgun. 
I love SIGs.

I spent most of today trying to work up a .357 Sig load that MAY be adequate for deer at very close range (25 yards or less). I have 115 gr. Gold Dots and Horn. HP-XTPs, 125 gr. SP Speers, and 147 gr. Gold Dots. I used V-N350, AA #9, and Longshot. I haven't shot them yet. Will do that tomorrow.

After that I'll work up some loads for the .40 S&W.

Any suggestions?

Update: I shot the different loads. The most accurate and the most felt recoil was the 147 gr. Gold Dot over 7.5 gr. of Hodgdon Longshot.

I have some .40 cal. bullets ordered for the .40 S&W. I'll load some up when I get them.

After loading trial cartridges to get accurate ammo, I found 2 very accurate loads for the .40 S&W.

If any of you reload for a .40, try these:

135 Nosler HP, 11.0 grs. of Hodgdon's Long Shot = 6" cluster offhand at 35 feet.
165 Speer Gold Dot, 7.5 grs. of Hodgdon's Long Shot = 4" cluster at 35 feet.

Both were 5-shot groups.

Sweet. Thanks for the tips. Cool

You want less puny? Sig just came out with a 10mm P220.

I also found a real accurate load for the .357 Sig:

125 gr. Speer JSP, 13.0 grs. of AA #9 = 3" group offhand at 35 feet.

Bob,
Nice Sig you have there. When I worked under the Marshal's Service, we were issued Glock 23's, 40 cal. Are the 2 pretty much the same Question

I only shot a Glock twice .. hated it. It was DAO and the trigger was a bear. The Sig is like the P-38 trigger .. DA/SA. The single action pull is ~ 4lbs. but the double action is ~ 10 lbs. No safety on it.

Based on a sample of two, I like the Sig a lot better. Besides, James Bond now uses a Sig. Laughing
His Walther PPK bit the dust I guess.
