Can't wait to get my .357Sig barrel for the P99 . This will be my first .357Sig .
Any ammo suggestions ? Anything low cost for practice ?
Bummer - Wal Mart does not carry any .357 Sig ammo . I usually stop there on my way to the range for practice ammo (Winchester white box) .

I use Georgia Arms "Canned Heat" ($149.95 for 1,000 rounds of high-quality 125gr FMJs), and in fact put 200 rounds of this stuff through one of my P99 .357 Sig barrels just today. Zero malfunctions, and very accurate.

While I primarily shoot my own reloads, I used to occasionally shoot CCI Blazers in .357SIG.

No more; I read elsewhere that they have recently been discontinued.

I concur that the Georgia Arms FMJ .357SIG is nice ammo. I have found it to be reliable and accurate.
No I do not have a .357 barrel for my P99, yet, but use it in my Sig 239(s) one original and one 40 conversion.

I think it is about greed/laziness. The Blazer cases, because they're aluminum, cannot be reloaded. They're Berdan-primed, so you can't even if you wanted to. The ranges I spoke to pick up the empty cases, reload them and sell the result. They told me that they don't want to separate the aluminum cases from the brass ones. But, that's sort of a weak argument, because you need to inspect every case anyway, for cracks or other defects. Especially since they're selling reloaded ammo. Brass doesn't last foreever.
