Buffalo Bore 125 Grain Jacketed Hollow-Point (JHP) Ammo Details

This 357 Magnum cartridge by Buffalo Bore is a heavy hitter. Its exceptional power means that it demands to be fired from an all steel revolver or rifle, never a lightweight alloy one. That added power is just the ticket for breaking through tough hog hide, however, as is this round’s projectile: a 125 grain XPB by Barnes.

The XPB is an all-copper bullet, and accordingly one that’s not only acceptable for use for hunting in places like California, but furthermore able to retain the virtual entirety of its weight as it blasts through sinuous tissue and obstinate bone. This clean shooting lead-free bullet has a wide hollow point nose cavity that causes massive cavitation during penetration as well. Porky better have said his prayers.

Buffalo Bore specializes in making powerful cartridges, and they use factory fresh reloadable brass and non-corrosive primers to do it. The size of this round’s bullet necessitated that Buffalo Bore not use a flash suppressant powder, but the result is less pronounced if you fire it out of a rifle.

Ballistic Gel Testing

 

In hopes of giving ourselves and our customers a better idea how this 357 Magnum self-defense ammo would perform if called upon in a self-defense scenario, we tested dozens of the best selling hollow points on the market.

We fired five rounds of this Buffalo Bore 357 Magnum ammo through a cloth barrier into Clear Ballistics calibrated synthetic gelatin and recorded the results. For these tests, we used a S&W 640 with a 2.125-inch barrel. In the photos, graphics and video on this page, you can see specifically how the Buffalo Bore ammo performed and how it sticks up with the rest of the 357 Magnum ammo we have tested so far.
