This from a friend in the testing business:
“I recently tested a .357 SIG barrel in my G23. Works like a charm. I fired the .357 SIG against several soft armor samples during a recent test and found that they all were stopped. The 125g. CorBon SIG did penetrate 18 layers of Allied Spectra Shield and 8 layers of a Second Chance IIA Ultima.
Interestingly, the Winchester 9 mm 115 +P+ “L.E. Only” (average 1325fps) COMPLETELY penetrated the level II all Spectra Shield armor. The second shot of the same load stopped at 20 layers! This same 9 mm load was stopped by all Kevlar material in IIA and II.”
