Armscor Full Metal Jacket (FMJ) 158 Grain 357 Magnum Ammo - 50 Rounds
Smith & Wesson introduced the .357 Magnum cartridge in 1934 as a superior performance crime fighting round: it was the age of the automobile equipped bandit and there was still a surplus of military grade weapons available and law enforcement needed something a bit more potent than, yet functionally familiar to, their .38 Special revolvers. Times have changed and so have the primary users of the .357. Today, while many officers will still opt for the magnum in a backup, it is primarily selected by private citizens for use as personal defense and competitions or as a hunting round as it is capable of taking down deer at close range and smaller game animals a little further out. Capable of being fired out of a revolver or a popular line of carbines, its versatility is key in maintaining its utility and popularity. Armscor’s 158 grain full metal jacket bullet possesses a muzzle velocity of 1545 feet per second with 823 foot pounds of energy. This is a quality training and competition choice.
Armscor of the Philippines is well known for being the brain trust behind several lines of quality 1911 pistol clones that are assembled and distributed in the US. They are also responsible for developing proprietary cartridges, the most famous being the surprisingly potent .22 TCM. The crux of this being that the company has a proven record of manufacturing dependably performing ammo with the ancillary bonus of reloadable cases.
