  • Information
For those wanting the deep-for-weight penetration of the all copper (lead free) Barnes XPB 140gr. bullet in a Tactical loading, here it is. We use low flash powder so the shooter will not be blinded by his own gunfire, as nearly all self defense shootings in America occur in low light when the criminal element is out and about.

Expect roughly 22+ inches of penetration in flesh and bone and a mushroom of roughly 55 caliber, with this load. These figures vary with differing impact velocities and amount of bone or heavy clothing encountered.

Our Tactical 357 mag. ammo generates less felt recoil and blast (flash and noise) than our Heavy 357 mag. load and as such is a better choice for those carrying light weight short barreled revolvers. This is still a full power 357 mag. load, (but not nearly as powerful as our Heavy 357 mag. ammunition)but allows for faster follow-up shots and greater shooting comfort.

This load is safe to use in any/all 357 mag. chambered firearms, as are all of our Tactical 357 mag. loads even those with light weight alloy cylinders and frames.

As always, Buffalo Bore refuses to get involved with the industry wide duplicitous practice of using extra long laboratory barrels to generate our published velocities. Doing so is dishonest to the customer as he/she will never be able to generate such velocities with real world firearms, in the real world, where it matters. Please note our real world velocities, fired from real world firearms:

  • 1401 fps -- Marlin 1894, 18 inch
  • 1225 fps -- S&W Mod 27, 5 inch
  • 1246 fps -- S&W MT. Gun, 4 inch
  • 1199 fps -- S&W Mod 66, 3 inch
  • 1149 fps -- S&W Mod 66, 2.5 inch

You’ll note that the more modern 4 inch S&W shoots faster velocities than the older 5 inch S&W. This is not a typo and is due to differing internal barrel dynamics of the two revolvers. GENREALLY speaking, newer S&W revolvers generate faster velocities than the older S&W’s, although we occasionally see an older S&W that shoots faster than a new one. Truth is that each firearm, no matter who made it or what model or date of manufacture, is a law unto itself.
