- Q & A
Carrying a big 357 Magnum for personal protection is a serious responsibility and one that should not be undertaken without quite a bit of thought. If you do decide to carry your gun for self-defense, make sure you take the time to carefully select your firearm, method of carry, and, of course, your ammunition. Target rounds cannot be used for self-defense because they’re prone to over-penetration and could easily go right through your target, impacting an innocent bystander behind them. In addition, target rounds do not create substantial wound cavities but simply make often surprisingly small through-and-through wounds. The larger the caliber the bigger that wound will be, yes, but it’s still nothing when compared to what a defense round can do. A good defense rounds mushrooms substantially on impact while simultaneously decelerating to create a massive wound cavity. The right defense round may one day save your life.
This .357 Mag ammo is made by Speer and weigh in at 158 grain, making them medium-weight for the cartridge size which gives you the best of both worlds: they’re light enough to travel towards target at higher speeds than their heavier counterparts and still heavy enough to impact targets with substantial force. These are Hollow Point, HP, rounds and deliver rapid energy transfer on impact, also immediately beginning to expand on impact. As they mushroom they also slow down, creating a devastating wound cavity. Each round has a muzzle velocity of 1235 feet per second and muzzle energy of 535 foot-pounds. This ammunition is specifically meant for self-defense.
There are 20 defense rounds in this single box of Speer ammunition. That’s just enough to keep your pistol loaded and ready for personal defense, so if you want to get training time in, you’ll need to order more than one box. Defense rounds produce more felt recoil and greater muzzle rise than target rounds, so the only way to ensure accuracy and placement is to spend time training with your chosen defense rounds. These particular defense rounds are Speer Gold Dot rounds and have years of testing and innovation behind them. Gold Dot rounds are used and trusted by many members of law enforcement. Speer manufactures ammunition at their longtime factory in Lewiston, Idaho, along the banks of the Snake River. Give yourself the peace of mind that comes with loading your concealed carry weapon with reliable, American-made defense rounds. Order now; what are you waiting for?
