Owner of Buffalo Bore Tim Sundles on Buffalo Bore 357 Magnum Ammunition:
Our 357 mag. ammo adds more power than ever before to the 357 mag. This ammo is safe to shoot in ANY all steel 357 revolver – this includes J frames. This ammo is no harder on your gun than any other normal 357 ammo. Please don’t phone us and ask if this ammo is safe in your gun. It is, providing your gun is in safe condition for use with any normal 357 ammo.
This load is the result of popular demand. Many folks who hunt deer and medium sized hogs/black bear want an expanding bullet that is heavier than our 158 gr. JHP load. We are utilizing the excellent Hornady XTP bullet and we very much like its accuracy and controlled expansion design. This bullet does expand, so do not expect several feet of straight line penetration like you’ll get with our non-expanding hard cast 180 gr. load. (Item 19A) When impacting flesh and bone at normal 6-inch revolver speeds, (1500 fps) this bullet will expand readily to about 60 caliber and penetrate about 18-25 inches depending on which bones are struck and the exact impact speed.
We don’t recommend this ammo to be fired in super light alloy revolvers as bullets may jump crimp under recoil, but the ammo itself wont hurt these super light weight revolvers. These revolvers are simply so light that the recoil is severe enough to cause crimp jump.
