- Q & A
.357 Magnum has a rich history. It was created in the 1930’s when the need for ammunition capable of traveling through car doors and other cover being used by bootleggers and gangsters became clear. The .357 is considered to be an excellent self-defense round, and one lesser-known fact about its power is that it is actually stronger at the 100-yard mark than its predecessor, the .38, is right out of the muzzle. If you carry a .357 for self-defense, these Blazer .357 158 grain JHP rounds are a good choice for your defensive carry needs.
Carrying hollow points for self-defense is important because you have no way to predict what backstop you will or will not have if you’re forced to defend yourself. But it’s also vital because hollow points make far more devastating wound tracks upon impact, which takes the stopping power of the .357 to an entirely new level. These are JHP, so they’ll do the job.
These rounds move well, too, with a muzzle velocity of 1,150 feet per second. They are 158 grain, which is a nice, solid weight for a .357. It’ll move quickly and pack a punch. Muzzle energy is 464 foot-pounds. To ensure your self-defense needs are met, you need to load your concealed carry weapon with rounds capable of good velocity and impact, and that’s what you get with these rounds.
Blazer uses aircraft-grade aluminum to make these rounds and a heat-treating process to perfect their manufacture. With Blazer’s decades of experience and dedication behind the production of this ammunition, you can carry them for self-defense and rest easy. That doesn’t mean you shouldn’t practice with them, though. All ammunition behaves differently and it’s vital to become familiar with the feel of whatever you use for self-defense. There are 50 rounds in this box, and each and every one is made in America. Place your order today to have the confidence you can only get carrying good-quality defense rounds.
