An excellent 357 magnum training round that incorporates technology that shooters will begin to see a lot more of, as regulations change and range safety improves. The price point is comparable to high grade target ammunition and the performance is also very comparable to normal loads. The frangible ammunition is made by using a sintered metal powder composition and creating a projectile that completely breaks up on contact with a hard backstop or target. For shooting steel at closer distances, this is a near perfect solution to ricochet and deflection concerns as well as uncomfortable blowback and splatter. For shooting at ranges with a steel backdrop, this is equally as effective, which allows you to be ahead of the curve or in compliance with recent changes.
The velocity of .357 Mag ammunition with a 101 grain plated frangible bullet is 1250 feet per second; the muzzle energy is 350 ft. lbs. Clearly this is a round best suited to training and target shooting, but the relatively mild reoil and the enhanced safety protection against deflection and ricochet improves the comfort levels of new shooters and veterans alike.
Suitable for use in any .357 Magnum firearm.
