Federal Vital-Shok Barnes XPB HP 140 Grain 357 Magnum Ammo - 20 Rounds
357 magnum ammo was introduced in 1934 to give revolver trained law enforcement officers an edge when dealing with the brazen criminals of the era. Made out of a lengthened .38 Special case with a stronger primer, the .357 Magnum delivered energy performance levels that were to that point unseen. Capable of dealing with hardened cover and even bullet proof vests, the cartridge remained a popular police caliber for as long as revolvers were standard issue. Today it is more popular for private defense, especially while in the wilderness, but also suitable for hunting with a handgun or carbine. The 140 grain Barnes Expander Hollow point bullets have a muzzle velocity of 1400 feet per second with 609 foot pounds of energy. This is obviously a personal defense round but is also capable of putting down boar and deer and close to medium range.
Federal Ammunition is an industry standard in performance ammunition with established performance data. When this reliability is coupled with the impressive ballistics of the Barnes Expander, solid copper bullet, the results are nothing short of devastating: the copper rounds have no jacket to get stripped away and achieve a higher velocity than lead, providing both deep penetration with a solid projectile that expands without losing material. For guaranteed maximum terminal ballistics in a .357 firearm, the professionals choose Federal.
