.357 MAGNUM AMMUNITION | SHOP BARNES, FIOCCHI, CCI & OTHER TOP BRANDS
.38’s are great, but they can’t hold a candle to 357 magnum ammo. Not all handgun ammunition is the same, and .357 ammo is hard-hitting stuff. Many folks will practice with .38 Special (SPL) rounds for range training and target practice since a .357 can safely chamber and fire them (but not the other way around). 357 ammo is perfect for practice and target shooting, too (but has a little extra kick), with the bonus of being in the top tier of concealed carry revolvers.
A dependable choice for everyday carry, 357 magnum ammo is slightly longer than .38 SPL ammo. As a result, there’s not much difference between carrying a .38 revolver or a slightly larger .357 Mag revolver, but the upgrade is massive. A hollow-point 357 magnum bullet combines maximum weight retention and terminal expansion to provide threat-stopping power in self-defense situations.
