357 Magnum Ammo
357 Magnum ammunition made for a common sight in police armories from its introduction in 1934 until the 1990s. The 357 mag's legion of associated revolvers and carbines have evolved into a CCW and target shooting role and the cartridge is still trusted by a lot of shooters for that today. The .357 Magnum typically fires a 125 or 158 grain bullet, with the ligher projectile trading a bit of penetration for higher velocity and, in the case of jacketed hollow points, more reliable expansion.
.357 Magnum loads typically produce velocities between 1,200 and 1,500 feet per second along with relatively heavy recoil. Look for an assortment of big name brands for sale here at Widener's like Federal, Winchester and PMC with bulk range packs in-stock for all your training needs.
While it's not a historically correct cartridge for Western or cowboy action shooting, the .357 offers nice, flat trajectories and compatibility with a variety of lever-action rifle and wheelgun designs. Action shooting loads are typically a bit less powerful than regular target ones to promote rapid, accurate fire.
CCI Blazer 357 Mag 158 Grain JHP - 50 Rounds$23.85
Manufacturer Blazer Condition New Bullet Weight 158 Grain Bullet Type Jacketed Hollow-Point (JHP) Use Type home defense Casing Type Aluminum Quantity 50 Ammo Caliber 357 Magnum Manufacturer SKU 3542 Primer Type Berdan UPC Barcode 076683035424 Cost Per Round 47.7¢ per round
CCI's Blazer brand of ammo allows shooters to enjoy inexpensive prices while experiencing the same amount of reliability for which CCI's rimfire ammo and component primers are well known. Each of these .357 Magnum rounds was built upon an aluminum casing which is non-reloadable and heat-treated for strength. A clean-igniting Boxer primer is mounted to the base of the case and serves to start a measure of high-energy propellant. Atop the round sits a jacketed hollow point (JHP) bullet which weighs in at 158 grains.
This is a common weight for the .357 caliber and has been proven both in streets and fields as a law enforcement choice and hunting load for many decades. The JHP has large, naked recess in its nose, a toothed cannelure at its crimp point, and a rounded head for smooth insertion into revolver cylinders and seamless feeding in autos like the Coonan pistol. The cannelure helps maintain accuracy under recoil and also binds jacket and core together during impact expansion; this allows the bullet to penetrate deeply into a threat as it mushrooms and projects its energy into vital areas in order to achieve a positive drop.
