This round has always had a very heavy rep as a manstopper, maybe in part because back in the 70s it was the only handgun ammo out there with expanding bullets that'd actually expand in soft tissue. Has a reputation for destroying a LOT of soft tissue and inflicting wounds grievous out of all proportion to its paper ballistics. Even in the 21st Century it appears to be one of the better handgun loads out there for defensive use. From a lever-action rifle often breaks 2100 f.p.s. and is a fair close-range whitetail deer load.
One of my favorite .357 loads, and hard to get right now. Also has a rep for cracking the frames of early S&W K-frame .357s after several thousand rounds, so if you have something that small, you might only want to shoot these in emergencies, and if your .357 revolver was made in Spain or South America, or is otherwise of uncertain metallurgy let your conscience be your guide. L-frames, N-frames, or a GP100? No problem, hot ammo like this is what they're made for. (Posted on 6/17/11)
