SIG 365 cartridge with an upset bullet

Review: SIG Sauer’s New “SIG 365 Ammunition”

For those serious about safety, a good supply of personal defense and training ammunition is vital. I practice rapid, aimed fire, and do not aim for the whole target.

Personal Defense With Limits

When discussing handguns for personal defense there are arguments put forward that are at odds with the reality I have observed.

I look for vetted information and demand an internal consistency from experiments and data. I feel that my conclusions are valid.
