Magtech 95 Grain Jacketed Hollow-Point (JHP) Ammo Details

This is 357 Mag Magtech 95gr. First Defense Solid Copper Hollow Point Ammo. Magtech first defense rounds are designed with a 100% solid copper bullet, unlike traditional hollow points that contain a lead core covered by a copper jacket. Copper jackets could tear away when fired, causing a loss of weight and a corresponding loss of power. However, Magtech first defense solid copper bullets have no jacket to split or tear away, ensuring every round you fire meets its target with maximum impact and effectiveness. This ammo comes packed in 20rd. boxes.
