NEW BUFFALO BORE APPAREL
BUFFALO-BARNES LEAD-FREE HEAVY 357 Mag
125 gr. Barnes XPB @ 1650 fps
20 Round Box
PRESS RELEASE FOR BUFFALO-BARNES HEAVY 357 MAG 125 gr. BARNES XPB
For those needing/wanting a Lead-Free, HEAVY 357 Magnum load, generating full power plus, here it is.
Below are real world velocities taken from my personal real-world stock guns. The established use of long laboratory test barrels that give false high-velocity readings is essentially misleading to the public who won’t be firing ammo from a laboratory test barrel in the real world, where it matters.
➤ 2145 fps - Marlin mod 1894, 18-inch barrel
➤ 1583 fps - S&W mod 27, 5-inch barrel
➤ 1591 fps - S&W Mt. Gun, 4-inch barrel
➤ 1507 fps - S&W mod 66, 3-inch barrel
➤ 1448 fps - S&W mod 66, 2.5-inch barrel
You’ll notice that the newer S&W 4 inch Mt Gun gave higher velocities than the older 5-inch model 27 S&W and this is because of different internal barrel dynamics of the newer gun.
Due to the long-for-weight all copper bullet, we did not have the case capacity to use a bulky flash retarded powder and thus there is noticeable muzzle flash with this load, except when firing it from the rifle, which yielded little to no flash.
This load is the typical Barn-Burning, Turbo-Charged, Buffalo Bore type of HEAVY 357 mag. load and as such should only be used in revolvers made of all STEEL. It should not be fired in lightweight alloy framed or cylindered revolvers. Feel free to use it in ALL/ANY 357 mag. chambered rifles and all STEEL revolvers.
