The .357 Magnum was the result of a collaborative effort by Elmer Keith, Phillip Sharpe, and Colonel D.B. Wesson. However, the bulk of the results came from Elmer Keith, who is well-known for his handloading contributions to the ammunition world. Of course, he’s known for more than just his ability to coax more pressure out of a cartridge; he also came up with what’s known as the Keith bullet. The Keith-style bullet was used in the first .357 Magnum cartridge and featured a flat meplat for better energy transfer and placed the bullet’s mass outside of the cartridge, allowing for more cartridge space, which translated to more powder. Today’s .357 Magnum has a modified version of the Keith bullet, and those features make it a powerful round for hunting and self-defense.
At 158 grain these are medium-weight rounds. They’re Jacketed Hollow Points and begin to expand the moment they strike their target, but unlike standard HPs they deliver carefully controlled expansion for deeper penetration and a larger, more debilitating wound channel overall. Each round bursts from the barrel of your gun with phenomenal speed at a muzzle velocity of 1220 feet per second and slams into your target with a muzzle energy of 522 foot-pounds. This ammunition is made specifically for self-defense. Fiocchi produces this ammunition in virgin brass cases with boxer primer, so it can be reloaded.
There are 50 defense rounds in this box of ammunition from Fiocchi. Fiocchi was founded in 1876 and has spent almost 150 years manufacturing good quality ammunition for generations of shooters just like you. Their headquarters are based in Lecco, Italy, but they also have a plant in Ozark, Missouri, for distribution in the United States. When sales demands overwhelm the Ozark plant, ammunition is shipped in from Italy. Order one box to keep your .357 Magnum ready for self-defense use; order two or more boxes to get realistic training in. Defense rounds have greater power than target rounds, so getting in target time with your chosen defense rounds is a wise choice. Place your order today, and feed your gun.
