Designed in 1934 and subsequently introduced to the market in 1935, the .357 Magnum is a heavy hitting round with a long history of stopping bad guys. As we are aware, organized crime during the 1930s was widespread and Police officers needed more powerful loads that could go through the current body armor and vehicles. The .357 Magnum was designed in response to Colts development of the well-known .38 Super Automatic handgun round. The designers knew that Colts 38 Super Auto round could go through the personal ballistic armor technology of the time and could penetrate the all-steel car doors of the time, because its muzzle velocity exceeded 1000-feet per second. Smith and Wesson helped with the continued development of the .357 Magnum and was able to demonstrate the cartridge to Police Departments all over the nation.
