357 magnum rounds that are ideal for self defense!
When it comes to carrying a firearm for self-defense there are a number of factors to consider outside the obvious. Although the gun you choose to carry is certainly important, from model to caliber to action, what you keep it loaded with is at least equally, if not more, important. The ammunition in your EDC (every day carry) weapon matters, and not just because it needs to be an expanding round, not a target round. Not all defense rounds are created equal, and if you want to take a look at high-quaity, reliable rounds, you should be taking a look at Hornady.
These Hornady rounds are for your .357 Magnum. At 140 grain they’re actually fairly lightweight for the cartridge, maintaining enough weight to impact targets with significant force while light enough to soar down-range at high speeds. These are Hornady’s XTP rounds which begin to expand immediately upon impact. They’re jacketed which controls expansion, allowing for greater penetration and a deeper wound cavity. Each round has a muzzle velocity of 1350 feet per second and a muzzle energy of 566 foot-pounds. This ammunition is meant for self-defense use.
When you order this single box of ammunition from Hornady you get 25 rounds, which is just enough to keep your gun and spare magazines or speedloaders ready for self-defense purposes. While it’s vital to be ready, you won’t be truly ready if you haven’t practiced sufficiently, and that’s where more ammunition comes in handy. Defense rounds produce more felt recoil and muzzle rise than target rounds, so if you want to be sure you can fire accurate shots with good placement, you’ll need realistic practice. That means buying extra boxes of defense ammunition. Just remember, someday your life or the lives of your loved ones might rely on whether or not you got enough practice. Hornady manufactures ammunition at their factory in Grand Island, Nebraska. Don’t wait until it’s too late; order now, and be ready.
