.357 Mag. Buffalo Barnes 125-grain Barnes XPB Lead Free Tactical Low Flash Short Barrel

posted on March 14, 2012

Buffalo Bore ammunition has a special name for all of its ammunition loaded with Barnes bullets—Buffalo Barnes. This particular .357 Mag. load is a tactical offering specifically designed for short-barreled handguns. It uses powder that does not deliver an intense flash, limiting the effect on your low-light vision. Tested out of a 4.6-inch barrel, this bullet created massive destruction inside the gelatin block and penetrated an impressive 23 inches after expanding 1.65 times its original diameter.
