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.

Magtech 357 Mag 158 Grain SJSP - 50 Rounds$44.85

This .357 Magnum ammunition from Magtech is a dependable choice for target shooting and small game hunting and can be used in both long guns and revolvers.
Each cartridge in this box of 50 fires a heavy 158 grain jacketed soft point bullet at a muzzle velocity of 1,235 feet per second (more in long guns). The heavy bullet provides strong penetration to punch through thick hide and bone, though for hunting a close range shot is ideal. Soft point bullets are well suited for hunting as they expand into a high diameter "mushroom" for maximum lethality; unlike hollow points, however, they do not fragment and cause excessive meat damage.
Magtech ammo is loaded in Ribeirao Pires, Brazil by CBC, which also owns the MEN and Sellier & Bellot brands. CBC produces its own components (including non-corrosive primers and brass cases) in-house for superior quality control and economies of scale.
Remington UMC 357 Mag 125 Grain JSP - 50 Rounds$49.85

The green and white box of Remington's classic UMC line is frequently recognized by experienced shooters as a source of affordable, dependable, and consistently performing ammunition. Remington designed the UMC line for accessibility but still stokes it with high-grade components such as their non-corrosive Kleanbore primers which leave very little residue in your revolvers action. For this .357 load, the primer is set into the base of a reloadable brass casing which contains a uniform measure of powder and is capped off with a jacketed soft point (JSP) projectile.
At 125 grains, the JSP is on the lighter side for the .357 Magnum caliber and lends itself to relatively light recoil which can be important when firing appropriately chambered J-Frames or the Kimber K6s. A pronounced, exposed lead tip promotes threat-stopping expansion during entry while a flat nose surface helps to create a larger entry wound upon impact. The flattened nose also makes these rounds safe for use in the magazine tube of a lever-action rifle for short range varmint hunting. A toothed cannelure fastens the bullet's copper jacket to its lead core in order to preserve momentum and also prevents jostling and accuracy loss under recoil.

Needless to say, the 357 Magnum is a powerful cartridge. Pretty much any bullet that comes out of a 357 revolver is going to do a lot of damage to anything it hits. But that doesn’t mean you should load just any old ammunition in your wheel gun. You should pick a round with a bullet designed specifically for self-defense applications. That’s Remington High Terminal Performance (HTP) in a nutshell.
This cartridge is loaded with a 110 grain semi-jacketed hollow point. The bullet’s copper jacket will keep lead fouling off of your barrel, which will in turn preserve your firearm’s accuracy. The jacket also strengthens the bullet, which prevents it from fragmenting apart as it retains the momentum it needs to penetrate deeply.
Because the jacket does not constrict the lead core’s hollow point nose cavity, the SJHP can reliably expand following lower-velocity impact. Under the right circumstances the SJHP can double its original diameter before coming to a rest inside its target. And since this round’s muzzle energy is around 400 ft lbs, it hits more than hard enough to quickly neutralize an immediate threat to your or your family's safety.
This ammunition features nickel-plated brass cases. They are still reloadable, but they also offer smoother extraction and better corrosion resistance than regular bare brass cases can provide. The SJHP’s flat nose profile makes it safe to load in a lever-action rifle’s tubular magazine.
