This is a great 357 magnum load for general plinking and target shooting. Depending on who you ask, you’ll hear the performance run the gamut from capable as a range round to top quality target ammunition. What’s most important though, is that these rounds are made by a company that has a great reputation with shooters around the world, and they ae producing millions of rounds at a high level of consistency and reliability. Yes, they are not perfect, you’ll find the occasional round that won’t function perfectly, but for the price point, Arsmcor can be placed head to head against any other budget priced range ammunition and generally will outperform the competition.
This .357 Magnum ammunition is a 158 grain projectile in full metal jacketed profile with a moderate velocity and energy, that will function in all mainstream firearms chambered for the .357 Magnum.
The Boxer primed case is reloadable and the full metal jacket will minimize the barrel fouling, though, admittedly, this is not the cleanest ammunition you can shoot. The price point generally makes it a worthwhile compromise for most shooters. This is otherwise a fine quality, reliable .357 Magnum load.

Here's the thing: 50 rounds... 3 failed to fire on the first hammer pull. This is unacceptable. I will be keeping my eye on this ammo for primer fixes by the manufacturer. Until then, I will definitely not buy again. My gun used was a GP100 as well. (Posted on 4/30/16)

This ammo was filthy dirty. Cartridges were jammed in the cylinder after 50 or so rounds through my BRAND NEW GP100. I couldn't even use the ejector rod after firing a few, had to spray some cleaner into the cylinder and gently work the ejector rod to remove the cartridges. Same thing with my friend's 686. On top of that, I had two rounds that didn't fire.
These things dirtied up my brand new GP100 extremely fast, we all (there were four total people) noticed how fast these things made our guns dirty. I typically shoot Magtech's... I will never by Armscor again. (Posted on 6/28/15)
