Speer 158 Grain Jacketed Hollow-Point (JHP) Ammo Details

Why not use the same ammo that countless cops have employed to keep themselves safe on their beats? This 357 Magnum load by Speer is ideal for self-defense owing to its revolutionary Gold Dot projectile. The bullet essentially does away with the issue of core/jacket separation thanks to the Uni-Cor electrochemical process that bonded its jacket to its core. As the result the Gold Dot only sheds a negligible part of its weight as it penetrates barriers such as heavy clothing, plywood, and even steel, and it keeps itself together as it tunnels through its target to create a deep wound channel to the vitals.

This round’s projectile has a profile that facilitates feeding in a semi-automatic weapon, if you prefer that sort of pistol for your 357 Magnum shooting needs. Its hollow point nose cavity was crafted in such a way as to ensure it expands to the optimal width and at the optimal rate for personal protection as well. We’re talking serious stopping power -- just the kind you should expect from such a beefy handgun.

This round’s nickel plated brass casing slips in and out of a cylinder satisfyingly smoothly, and cycles through a semi-automatic just as well. Nickel further benefits the round by protecting it from harmful corrosion. That’s just a little more of the peace of mind a quality round like Speer’s provides.

    This ammo is better suited to hunting than law enforcement/self defense. Testing for expansion in to water after 4 layers of denim show moderate expansion (.43") with a long shank. This modest expansion and long sectional density would make for deep penetration. For self-defense I would give this 2 stars because of over-penetration. For hunting I give it 5 stars.
