357 Sig Handgun Cartridge:
 The 357 Sig cartridge was designed by Federal Cartridge and SIGarms as a joint venture and was then introduced to the public in 1994. The sole purpose of this bottle-neck cartridge design was to create a larger case capacity to launch standard 9mm bullets at an higher velocity, subsequently this also increases muzzle blast as well, which is an undesireable feature for this cartridge.
