The .357 Magnum is the cartridge that ushered in the era of magnum rounds, and as with other enormously powerful rounds, we have renowned outdoorsman and handloader Elmer Keith to thank for its creation. Although it was the result of a collaborative effort between Elmer Keith, Philip Sharpe, and D.B. Wesson, many of the cartridge’s amazing features came from Keith. One such feature is the round’s Keith-style bullet, which has a large, flat meplat, enabling it to deliver greater energy transfer as well as deeper penetration. Your .357 Magnum-chambered firearm is one awesome gun, and if you carry it for self-defense, you need reliable, well-made defense rounds.
These .357 Magnum rounds are 158 grain, putting them in the middle of the weight range; at this weight these rounds are capable of reaching extraordinary speeds while also delivering phenomenal hits. These are Soft Point, or SP, rounds, so they begin to expand immediately upon impact. SP rounds expand more slowly than HPs, so they penetrate more fully, creating big, catastrophic wound cavities. SPs can be used in areas where HPs are not allowed. Each round has a muzzle velocity of 1263 feet per second and muzzle energy of 560 foot-pounds. This ammunition is specifically designed for personal protection use.
There are a fantastic 1000 defense rounds in this box of Sellier and Bellot ammunition. If that seems like a lot of defense ammunition, you may actually be surprised how quickly you go through it. Training with your chosen defense rounds is a good idea because it gives you the opportunity to master accuracy, especially with follow-up shots. Defense rounds produce more recoil and overall power than target rounds, so if you want to train realistically for a self-defense scenario, you need to train using defense ammunition.
