- Q & A
Carrying a firearm for self-defense is a major responsibility, one that requires making many decisions. Choosing what gun to carry is only the start because there’s also deciding on method of carry, potential adjustments to how you dress – the list goes on. One of the most important details is ammo selection. Target rounds cannot be used because not only do they simply produce through-and-throughs, they over-penetrate which can result in innocent bystanders being hit. A good defense round will hit hard, create a sizeable wound cavity, and decelerate to reduce risk of over-penetration. They also need to be reliable, and that’s where Hornady comes in.
These Hornady rounds are made for your .357 Magnum. Each round weighs in at 140 grain, making these medium-weight for the cartridge size. Being right in the middle of the weight spectrum means you have the best of both worlds: these rounds are light enough to travel at higher speeds than their heavier counterparts while remaining heavy enough to strike targets solidly. These are JHP, Jacketed Hollow Point, rounds and begin to expand on impact. Their jackets control expansion which allows for greater penetration than standard HPs and the creation of a deeper wound cavity. This ammunition is designed specifically for self-defense use.
When you order this box of ammunition from Hornady you get 250 defense rounds. That may seem like a lot of defense ammunition but you’ll find you’re going to burn through it faster than you might think. Defense rounds produce more felt recoil than target rounds which means the only way to ensure accuracy is to practice with your chosen defense rounds. With 250 rounds you can get realistic training in and have enough left to keep your carry gun loaded and ready. Each round produces a muzzle velocity of 1440 feet per second and muzzle energy of 644 foot-pounds. Hornady manufactures ammunition at their factory in Grand Island, Nebraska.
