This ammo is crap!!!
I usually don't write review, but this ammo is seriously crap. I can't believe other people wrote good reviews about it. Out of my new 7 round S&W 686, 2-3 rounds won't fire on average . I bought 1000 rounds. Very annoying since you're supposed to wait 30 secs before firing again due to delayed primer ignition. At first I thought it was my gun but then I bought some PMC bronze ammo from the range and it went bang every time (50 rounds). PMC bronze also had noticeably stronger recoil. This Armscor ammo was anemic.
Decent plinking ammo
Overall, this ammo is pretty good for plinking. Visually the ammo looks "cheap" compared to ammo from other companies but I had no issues with misfires in my 4" GP100 with stock springs, they all went bang reliably. One thing I noticed was that the powder charges seemed to be pretty inconsistent. I only shot one box of Armscor but I would guess about 1 out of every 5 shots felt weak and another 1 out of 5 would feel like it was a bit hotter than average. I didn't have a chronograph to verify it though so I am only going off how the round felt in my hand when it was fired, some rounds kicked quite a bit more than others out of the same box.
I did have a couple cartridges that didn't fire
I ordered both the .357 magnum and .38 rounds. The 38s shoot fine but I wasn't able to fire 2 of the 50 rounds of the 357. It appears the cartridge on the two that wouldn't fire are just a hair longer than the others.
good hot stuff
Good hot stuff and fairly clean, relatively speaking. Didn't chrono any but through a GP100 with 6" barrel it covered 55 yds to 1/2" AR500 steel in a hurry. At that range it rocked the 8" plate pretty darned good, too. Hard to beat it for this price per box delivered-to-my-doorstep price
Very good, not great!
Calibration of the cartridges seem to be off or slightly irregular, by only micro-meters. Remote possibility that the spacing on my revolver could be slightly off. So I'll give Armscor the "benefit of the doubt."
Good for the range
It seems the primers are fairly hard. If you've lightened the springs in your gun, you're going to get a few misfires. In two that have been lightened, it was a semi-regular occurence. Not so when using another that still has the stock S&W springs, no failures at all. When it does go bang, as it *usually* does, it seems a bit hotter than some brands. No accuracy issues. I hesitate to fuss about it, since the trigger was lightened and that was *my* doing, but if you have this mod to your revolver, you should know about the harder than usual primers. Haven't had this problem with any other ammo with those particular guns.
357 mag 158gr fmj armscor
I purchased it for my 357 single action revolver for practice and they were excellent rounds. I had no problems its good ammunition. Buying from Lucky gunner I always get good value and my money's worth.
performed very well
To vince---you should expect that flash and residue from this very powerful round at such a high velocity muzzle speed !! If you want less of that -buy a less volatile round---youll be glad you had this round in your gun when the assailaint is stone cold dead from the get go !! God Bless and good luck to you sir !!
Reaction at the range is always some variation of "what the %@# was that?" Distinctly louder than other .357 ammo I've used, but not uncomfortable at all to shoot in my 4" GP100. Reliable, reasonably priced, not too dirty.
