.38 Special & .357 Magnum
“thirty-eight special” and “three fifty seven magnum”
The .357 S&W Magnum is a revolver cartridge with a .357 inch bullet diameter. The .357 is based on the .38 Special and these cartridges can give you a nice amount of power.
Regarded as an excellent self-defence round, big game such as bears and large ungulates, which have a substantially sturdier build than humans are more affected by these rounds.
NOTICE: The availability of guns cannot be guaranteed.
.357 Magnum has a higher velocity at 100 yards (91 m) than its parent .38 Special has at the muzzle. Its stopping power on game is similar to that of the .45 Colt, and it has a flatter trajectory. It is a very versatile cartridge, and can be used with success for plinking, hunting, or target shooting.
