Looking into a sem-custom 357 sig 2011 ltd gun.   I'm only aware of CK arms currently offering the chambering through their Limited Solution model.    Are there any other custom shops I should be talking to?

Nope, located in the US.   Have read about the round being popular in the land down under.   Similar restrictions in AUS making the 357sig a go to like the 38 super in Mexico, correct?
 
ok just thought you might be getting a competition gun for Australia. im sure anybody could build you a 357 sig as it's the same exact breech face as a 40/10mm. kkm and other companies make barrels in that config. collectors piece?

No I plan on switching back to 357 sig but in a 2011 gun.   While the 357 sig has a lot more muzzle blast, the recoil is softer then my 40 loads.  My 40 has alot more bullet drop and reliability issues when I try to drop the PF below 170, it works best at 175-180 with 180gr bullets .   My 357 hums right along at 167pf with 125gr pills. 

I should restate as looking for semi-custom.   As awesome full blown custom would be,  $5k budget is a tough meal to eat.

Call KKM precision, Schuemann and other ball manufacturers to see what your options are. They could definitely make a custom barrel for you. Buy an STI Edge and get the barrel fitted

That's a great suggestion,  I hadn't thought about buying a separate barrel for an already built gun.

I have 3 40c limited guns and all have 357sig  barrels. All you need is a short chamber 9mm barrel and have it fitted and chamber  reamed. I have a ton of info on sig been running them for many many years if you need any help with loading or anything let me know. 

I also  straighten the tapered neck to stop bullets setback with that Dillon  9x25 cut down sizing die here’s  a couple pictures.

The rule book has .357 Sig now listed as a caliber capable of making major. I thought this as well until I looked. 

I think they may have added it maybe two years ago? Not exactly sure but its been legal for a while in USPSA as well.
