357 magnum ammunition is a popular range and self-defense round among American recreational shooters. Large enough to use in many capacities for hunting, the caliber is primarily used in handguns but you can find carbines chambered for 357 mag as well.
Because of the caliber's raw power, it is widely regarded as one of the best self-defense rounds available. You can generally expect muzzle velocities of 1,200 to 1,600 feet per second from when paired with commercial 357 magnum ammunition.
Sport shooters looking to do some range training will likely opt for full metal jacket (FMJ) rounds while jacketed hollow point (JHP) bullets are loaded in most commonly accepted self-defense rounds. Look for a steady in-stock supply from great manufacturers like Speer, Remington and others.
