.357 Mag. Federal 180-grain JHP

If a recovered bullet could be described as pretty, this one would win the beauty pageant.

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.

    I have a Henry rifle .357 mag . Got any stats for a .357 mag from a rifle? This round sounds like a good one for deer and pigs,what say? Muzzle velocity should be higher from a rifle.
