- Q & A
Carrying a gun for self-defense is a major responsibility, one that requires considering many factors. There’s the obvious issue of deciding which gun to carry which involves choosing caliber manufacturer, and model. Then there’s the choice of how you’re going to carry and the holster you’ll use to do it. Other factors such as local laws and regulations, getting your license to carry, and so on, also come into play. There is one part of concealed carry that some gun owners don’t give enough thought, and that’s the choice of what defense ammunition to use.
These rounds are made by the 150-year-old Winchester company for your .357 Magnum. These rounds weigh in at 125 grain which makes them relatively lightweight for the cartridge size. Being lighter enables these rounds to travel down-range at higher speeds than their lighter counterparts and also helps keep felt recoil manageable. These are JHP, Jacketed Hollow Point, rounds and begin to expand on impact. Their jackets control expansion, slowing it to allow for greater penetration than standard HPs and the creation of a deeper, devastating wound cavity. This ammunition is specifically designed for self-defense use.
When you order this single box of ammunition from Winchester you get 20 defense rounds. That’s just enough to keep your gun and speedloaders or spare magazines loaded and ready for personal protection. Keep in mind that defense rounds produce more felt recoil and muzzle rise than target rounds so the only way to ensure accuracy is going to be by practicing with your chosen defense rounds. Each of these rounds produces a muzzle velocity of 1450 feet per second and muzzle energy of 583 foot-pounds. Winchester manufactures ammunition right here in the United States just as they always have. Order now to be truly prepared for whatever may come.
