I also got the barrels for my sig p250 for .357 sig so it is just a barrel swap. Just haven’t tried it out yet.
Now to get dies for reloading.
In an AR-pistol platform...that'd be interesting...plenty of velocity out of a 7.5" or 10.5" barrel would really make it smokin' hot!

Couple of the local vendors have it that way...and the new Sportsman's Warehouse is $1 per box of comparable Hornady 147 grain JHP XTP less...

I am a Ruger Fanboy at heart. I always have been, but I found that I point shoot a Glock better than any other handgun.
My carry load is the 125gr Speer Gold Dot.
I love Ruger Revolvers and their older P-Series pistols...but when it comes to semi-auto's, I'm a Glock fan...I find that their grips (depending on the pistol size and generation model) fits my smaller hands better than most other pistols on the market...especially the subcompact pistols...26, 27, 33, as well as the 30SF, and 36.

I already reload 400 corbon which is a bottle neck pistol caliber so I'm planning on reloading 357 sig too.
What I'm using the gun for is woods carry because FMJ 357 sig penetrates deeper than hot loaded underwood FMJ 10mm and the recoil is a lot less than 10mm.
I, too, considered it as a possible woods / hiking pistol...shot placement is #1 concern and penetration is #2...and the more I'm reading the penetration aspect, especially out of a 5" barrel is fantastic...and out of a longer barrel is how the .357 SIG performs best!
The video spoke volumes as far as ballistics and penetration through same barriers!
