357 SIG
« on: May 06, 2013, 11:21:47 AM »
Anyone know what happened to Pete's 357 SIG page on the internets? Link I had now takes me to some granola website of some sort. :o

Somewhat related I did try the Hodgdon's load of 10.0 gr 800-X, 125 gr Gold Dot (for 357 Sig) at 1.135 inches. Nice accurate load in a Smith M&P. Fired at an indoor range so didn't get to chrono the round. Hodgdon claims 1438 fps from a four inch barrel in their testing.

Looks like he didn't pay his bill or renew his domain name. Other websites will buy the domain name, and transfer all incoming traffic to their website. It's a way to get customers. Bad thing is then you have to buy the domain name back from them for big $$$$$$. But other times it's as simple as not paying the hosting bill. The host will re-route people visiting your site to a paid advertisers site until you pay your monthly dues.

Yea, Pete's page is gone... ???

I did pull-down some Underwood 357 Sig 125 grain FMJ's that was from a batch that blew up a guy's gun, I believe he had a bullet set back issue.  Anyway those were loaded 9.8 grains - 10.0 grains of Longshot powder said to run 1475 fps.  Info is posted on the forum here.

Yeah Reaper, I guess he got tire of paying the bill after all these years. ;D Cain't say I blame the guy.

I know you can't always compare powders and pressure from one cartridge to another but Hodgdon does show Longshot and 800-X under a 147 gr XTP (357 SIG) in their manual. 7.5 gr of LS @38,700 psi and 9.0 of 800-X @ 38,000 psi. I did see the thread and tend to agree with you on the cause.

I usually use 115 grain bullets for my 9mm, and 125 grain ones with my 357 SIG. I use 8 grains of Unique powder with a Precision Bullets RNF bullet.
Some people think I'm paranoid because I have so many guns. With all my guns, what do I have to be paranoid about?
