This ammo’s equally good for 357 Magnum revolvers, of course, and any 357-chambered lever-action rifle ought to fire it just fine. This round is outfitted with a heavy 158 grain bullet, but its low 755 fps muzzle velocity means that its recoil registers as particularly light. The lead semi-wadcutter bullet hasn’t got a jacket, so it poses a significantly lower risk of peppering you with shrapnel if it hits a hard surface. The LSWC is optimal for shooting paper targets. The bullet’s flat nose and shoulder chop a clean hole through a sheet of paper, so you and your friends will all be able to appreciate just how close together you’re capable of landing your shots.
This ammo’s fine brass cases ought to go straight from the cylinder into a zip lock bag so you can reload them later. Remington’s Kleanbore primers are equally reliable and noncorrosive, and their powder burns at a nice and steady rate.
