Hornady Ammunition 158 Grain Jacketed Hollow-Point (JHP) Ammo Details

This package contains 25 rounds of Hornady Custom .357 Magnum ammunition. One of the most respected names in the industry, Hornady is famous for producing innovative bullet designs and high-performance cartridges. Hornady’s Custom ammo is built to tight tolerances and hand inspected before leaving the factory. These high-quality loads give serious shooters the advantage of hand-loaded precision in an affordable factory-made format.



Each of these factory fresh cartridges is loaded with an XTP (eXtreme Terminal Performance) jacketed hollow point projectile. One of Hornady’s most popular bullet designs, the XTP delivers exceptional accuracy and hard-hitting weight retention. XTP bullets are engineered to withstand incredible velocities and still deliver controlled expansion and deep penetration. These proprietary projectiles hit hard, penetrate deeply, and carve massive wound channels, making them a great option for self-defense and concealed carry applications.



Hornady Custom loads also feature Hornady’s own reloadable brass cases, which deliver reliable feeding and function perfectly, even under maximum chamber pressures. Hornady Custom ammo is made with specially formulated propellants that produce optimal pressure, velocity, and consistency. Non-corrosive boxer primers are selected for their rapid and reliable ignition of the powder charge.



This ammunition produces a consistent muzzle velocity of 1250 feet per second and 548 foot pounds of muzzle energy.

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 Hornady Ammunition 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 Hornady Ammunition ammo performed and how it sticks up with the rest of the 357 Magnum ammo we have tested so far.

    I have been shooting this ammo out of my 6 1/2" Taurus 608 revolver with no misfires at all. Only snafu is periodically a round will not eject when rod is pushed,but will eject on next push. I plan on using and buying this ammo as long as I can and would recommend as such to others.

    Had a terrible experience with this ammo. Was thinking about using this as my carry round. bought a box of 25 to try. shot 10 rounds and only 7 went off. for those keeping score at home that's 30 percent that didn't work. i was extremely disappointed with this round.
