- Q & A
For years the word “magnum” has inspired awe among firearms enthusiasts. Everyone knows the word implies greater power, but what does that really mean? In centuries past, a magnum simply referred to a measure of champagne, but with the creation of the .357 Magnum cartridge in 1934, it took on an entirely new and explosive meaning. The .357 Magnum was the first of its kind; originally created to blow through barriers put up by the era’s gangsters and bootleggers, it was a cartridge packed to higher pressures until it reached the level creators were looking for: explosively powerful. It was absolutely bigger and badder than the cartridges available then, and even today the .357 Magnum packs a real punch.
This ammunition is manufactured by Sellier and Bellot, a company with a history as rich as the cartridge itself. They’ve been around since 1825, when French merchant Louis Sellier decided it was time to get into the ammunition business. Their plant is located in Vlasim, Czech Republic, and their products are distributed worldwide. All of their ammunition is produced to exacting standards and they are an ISO-9001 certified company. In 2009, they were acquired by CBC, one of the biggest ammunition and firearms manufactures in the world, a move that has only increased their quality and reputation.
