The top of the casing houses a jacketed hollowpoint (JHP) projectile and secures it via a light base crimp alongside a mouth crimp at the projectile's toothed cannelure; this ensures that the bullet doesn't jostle out of place under recoil which can spoil ultimate accuracy. The 158-grain JHP matches the profile of the most effective .357 Magnum duty loads and has a truncated cone shape for easy feeding and reliable expansion upon impact. During entry into a target, the bullet's hollow cavity and exposed lead tip promote reliable mushrooming while its strong copper jacket and cannelure prevent separation; this results in the perfect balance between deep penetration and threat-dropping energy transfer.
The width of the hollow cavity also makes these rounds safe for use in lever-action rifles with tubular magazines. Federal Premium is one the United States' most popular ammunition manufacturers. Their products are recognized for consistent quality and top-tier performance.
