Finally ordered a 357 Sig barrel for my P250 Compact. These barrels are becoming hard to find at the moment, for all sizes.

I had to pay $179 for the compact barrel, and I found it at a small authorized Sig dealer -he just happened to have one in stock. Juat a month ago, I had found a couple on Ebay, Brownells, and another place. Then all the sudden there were NONE available. I wonder if Sig Sauer is cutting back on making just barrels so people will have to buy a conversion kit instead??? Are 357 Sig not all that popular?

Seems like almost everyone is into the 9mm. I do have a Glock 19, but would like a Glock 31. Anyway, like at the gun range, there are lots of pistols a person can rent, but most are in 9mm, a few 40 cal, and one or two 45 cal. But not a single 357 Sig or Mag.

Looking forward to firing my P250C in 357 Sig when the barrel arrives in a few days. What's the best ammo to buy?

Congrats on the new barrel! Sorry, I wasn't able to help with any coupon codes.
I mentioned elsewhere, my barrel is in limbo at a LGS due to NY state laws.
However, I was able to shoot it a couple times before I found out it had to be registered.

I liked shooting it. If possible, it is more accurate than the .40cal, seems to shoot flatter.
As far as recoil, I did not notice any significant difference or discomfort. If anything it seems easier to shoot than the .40cal.
I shot only a couple different types through it including the Winchester 125 gr and Sellier and Bellot 140gr. which both fed and shot fine. I honestly think the Winchester 125gr felt more comfortable to shoot.

Good luck!
