You appreciate having a more compact pistol for personal protection, but you still want it to pack a punch. That’s why you carry a .357 magnum, caliber that packs a punch and then some! Because it is absolutely vital to have confidence in the rounds you load your conceal carry weapon with, you use this Magtech .357 158 grain SJHP ammunition. This ammunition has a variety of features brought together to create a round meant to offer you and your family the protection you need and want.
It was 1934 when skilled hunter Elmer Keith first created the .357 round and today it has become the caliber of choice for those who want the size of a .38 but higher pressure, and, therefore, more stopping power. This ammunition reaches out and touches your targets at a muzzle velocity of 1,235 feet per second and a 50-yard velocity of 1,104 feet per second. It also has a nice slap to it with a muzzle energy of 535 foot-pounds and a 50-yard energy of 428 foot-pounds. And at 158 grain, it’s moderately heavy for a .357 rounds, so you can be sure it’ll make its mark.
There are a variety of possible uses for this ammunition. It’s an SJHP, so it expands on impact, which makes it a self-defense option. But it also contains a softer bullet, has less ricochet, and can be used for steel-plate shooting. And don’t think that just because it’s a good self-defense round you cannot or should not use it for training; quite the contrary. It’s important to be familiar with the ammunition you load your personal protection firearm with, which is why you should take the time to fire these rounds during training. Being comfortable with your ammunition is a must.
Magtech manufactures its ammunition in Sao Paulo, Brazil, at the same plant where it has been producing quality-yet-affordable rounds since 1926. Their ammunition is sold in 50 countries and built to an exacting standard. There are 50 rounds in this box, which gives you enough to put a few rounds down-range and still load your firearm for personal protection. When you need self-defense rounds, you need hollow points, and when you want a world leader in ammunition manufacturing, you need Magtech.
