Read on to learn some specifics on why. 1. Shootability: While some shoot the .40 S&W well, few shoot the 9mm less accurately. Those who have problems using the .40 S&W almost always shoot a 9mm more accurately. This is true at any distance and even more so when repeat shots are needed.
I'm not very recoil sensitive, so for me, a 9mm is pretty much like a cap pistol, as is the .38 Special in a full framed gun. The .40 is a sharper and quicker recoil, the .357 SIG sort of snaps, and the .45 ACP has a nice strong recoil, but its longer lasting and truthfully more comfortable. Worst recoiling gun I own is a S&W 642 Airweight.
You Make the Call: Sig Sauer’s P226 Gun vs. Sig’s P229 – 357 SIG and .40 S&W and popular among law enforcement officers, the military and civilians. THE TALE OF THE TAPE If by looking at the tables above you think to yourself that there’s not much.

The .40 S&W was developed specifically for law enforcement needs. It fires rimless, .40 inch (10.16mm) diameter bullets. The .45 ACP (Automatic Colt Pistol) uses bullets with diameters of .452 inches (11.5mm). The energy of the .40 S&W exceeds standard-pressure .45 ACP loadings, generating between 350-foot-pound (470 J) and 500-foot-pound (680 J) of energy, depending on bullet weight.
The 357 Sig is a good bit louder than the 40 S&W, in my opinion, but I can't tell much difference in recoil in the same pistol (Sig 239). As to sharing the range with others, I carry the foam plugs to use in addition to the "ears" when I or some of my fellow shooters use some of the more lively calibers.
With the. 40 S&W and the .45 ACP, you get no extra performance with the added recoil you get from those 2 rounds. With the .357 SIG, you get more penetration at a cost of added flash, recoil, concussion, and monetary cost.

Yes, the .357 sig does more damage, since can produce more kinetic energy on average. There is a good youtube video by Paul Harrell on the subject. The title is Personal protection: .357 SIG vs. .40 s/w
The FBI announced it was planning to swap out the .40 S and W pistols and ammunition now used by its agents and replace them with 9mm pistols and ammo. It's time to look at the real-world performance of 9mm and .40 S and W rounds in terms of wound ballistics.
In our last video we shot the 40 S&W and 10mm into some clay. Today on Kentucky Ballistics we shoot some 10% ballistics gel with the 40 S&W and a 10mm. I hope you enjoy the video and thanks for.
Army Considering .40 caliber as FBI Returns to 9mm – 357 Sig, .40 S&W and .45 ACP.

357sig and the 40s&w in general . thanks. .357 SIG is an excellent man-stopper and is great for shooting through cover but it isn't very practical unless you're firing it out of a short-barreled gun (in <3" barrels .357 SIG outperforms .357 Magnum as the powder burns much faster), even then firing it from.
Sig Sauer P226 : Storied Guns – The slide will move off the front of the frame, allowing separation of the barrel and recoil spring. We’ll talk about variants of the P226 in a minute, but for now, know that in order to handle.
None of the above: in my hands, the 357 SIG slams the hand harder (and is quite a bit louder) than the 40 S&W but comes back on target faster and straighter than the 40 S&W. So, in terms of pure recoil, the 357 SIG has more but I find it to also be more controllable.
The 40 s&w out performs the 9mm +p 124 grain loadings . The 40s&w can be loaded from 135-180 grain bullets which give it the edge in stopping energy . The 357 sig is a 9mm bullet in a 10mm case which really allows the 9mm bullets to perform at their best . I’m currently investing in a barrel for my M&P to allow the 357 sig to be used .
