If you base terminal performance on the way a recovered bullet looks, you have to like this .357 Mag. load from Federal. This bullet will penetrate in excess of 16 inches, expand 1.7 times its original diameter and will retain all its weight. It’s also—by any recovered bullet standard—pretty. Marketed as a hunting bullet, it should work just fine on zombies, trolls or bad guys.
