The .357 S&W Magnum (9×33mmR), or simply .357 Magnum, is a revolver cartridge with a .357-inch (9.07 mm) bullet diameter, created by Elmer Keith, Phillip B. Sharpe, and Colonel D. B.

Design of the .357 Magnum – 357 mag ammo in stock

The final rendition of S&W and Winchester’s .357 Magnum bullets took the .38 Special casing and extended it by one-eighth. They kept the same .357 diameter bullet (the actual bullet size of the .38 Special) and packed a little more powder at a slightly higher pressure into the 357 shells. 357 mag ammo in stock

This casing extension didn’t just give its creators more space for powder, it also made the .357 rounds impossible to fit into firearms chambered for the .38 Special, which most likely couldn’t withstand the power of firing the bullet.

The first cartridge held a 158 grain (gr) bullet and shot the semi-wadcutter load at over 1,500 fps out of a larger N-frame revolver with a 8 ⅜ inch barrel. To further test the .357 Magnum rounds and firearm, which would eventually become the S&W Model 27, Wesson took the revolver and ammo on a big game hunt in Wyoming during the fall of 1935. Proving the effectiveness of the cartridge, Wesson harvested antelope, moose, elk, and even a grizzly bear with the new firearm and cartridge.

The .357 Magnum revolver went into production and the first one to leave the factory with the serial number one, was given to J. Edgar Hoover. After its release, the .357 Mag spent 20 years with the title of the world’s most powerful handgun cartridge.

Uses for the .357 Magnum – Bulk 357 mag ammo 1000 rounds

After its initial production, the .357 Magnum proved itself a worthwhile cartridge. U.S. military personnel used this caliber from World War II through Vietnam. General George S. Patton, one particularly famous .357 Magnum shooter, carried two revolvers, one an ivory handled (not pearl) S&W .357 Magnum and the other an ivory handled single action .45 Long Colt. bulk 357 mag ammo 1000 rounds

For years, revolvers chambered for the .357 Magnum sat on the hips of police officers, security guards, and some of the U.S.’s special forces. Even today, decades after classic revolvers were replaced with semi-automatic pistols, short barreled .357 Mag revolvers still offer backup support to those who protect and serve.

The .357 Mag cartridge also become popular for hunting, silhouette shooting, and self defense, both against human perpetrators and dangerous game (if in the area of the largest predators, such as grizzlies, many suggest opting for a magnum cartridge of a larger caliber, such as the .44 Magnum, .41 Magnum, or .500 S&W, but with practice and accuracy, a .357 Mag can help). best 357 mag ammo for deer hunting.

Due to its aforementioned versatility, the .357 Magnum provides a full range of applications and offers just about everything a handgun owner needs for target shooting, protection, and hunting. Because of this, if someone wants to only own one firearm, many recommend it be a .357 Magnum revolver.

Personal Defense

This is the use most of us put the .357 Magnum to. For the most part, the 110 to 125-grain JHP bullets are best.

At 1,300 to 1,440 fps, these bullets expand quickly, fragment and produce an effective wound channel.

The Hornady Critical Defense at 1,380 fps doesn’t fragment and produces an impressive balance of expansion and penetration.

The Federal 125-grain JHP is often fastest in testing at 1,440 fps.

The Remington 110-grain JHP offers less recoil at about 1,400 fps and penetrates less than heavier bullets.

For general defensive use and home defense, these loads have a high likelihood of effect with a single shot.

Another choice is the Remington 125-grain Golden Saber.

Loaded to about 1,250 fps, in most revolvers, this is a mid-power loading, far more powerful than the .38 Special, but controllable in lighter .357 Magnum revolvers.

As an example, the Smith and Wesson 640 Pro I often carry is best served with this load or a 110-grain JHP, as recoil is just too much with a full-power 125-grain loading.

A full-size four-inch barrel .357 Magnum is a formidable revolver with 125-grain loads.

Another choice comes with heavier bullets in the 135 to 145-grain range.

It isn’t well known, but Hornady offers a .357 Magnum version of the 135-grain bullet adopted by the FBI in 9mm.

The Critical Duty 135-grain load is a well-balanced loading that offers good performance.

If the revolver is carried during the winter months when heavy clothing may be worn, this load is well worth your time and effort to obtain.

It is accurate and offers low muzzle flash. Among the loads I keep on hand is the Winchester 145-grain Silvertip.

This loading has a formidable reputation and offers greater penetration than lighter bullets, while maintaining its weight and avoiding fragmentation.
