Aguila


   

.357 158 Gr. JSP

- Aguila ammo is made in Mexico and is a cheap ammo, cheaper than PMC(in Belgium...). You can get all the information on Aguila ammo on their web www.aguilaammo.com. I used semi-jacketed soft point .357 mag. 158 grains. It's a real ammo for revolvers, not intended for gas-operated DE. It was quite precise and smooth when shooting, but gave terrible feeding problems(the spent case was discharged, but no new cartridge loaded). I guess that the cartridge has a very narrow rim and therefore failed to extract.

.357 158 Gr. Hydra-Shock JHP

- From what I know, very good self-defense round, though for target shooting this would be a poor choice, mostly due to its high price. When fired muzzle flash, flip and recoil are more than Fiocchi, but less than Remington and Winchester, although this one doesn't produce much smoke. MRI recommended.

.357 158 Gr. American Eagle JSP

- Relatively cheap and reliable cartridge. Some smoke, not too obnoxious. Recoil is not bad, but it is definitely a full power round. It isn't too dirty either. You could probably go 200 rounds without cleaning and not worry much. Pretty hefty muzzle flash. MRI recommended.

Specs:

 Caliber - .357; Bullet Weight - 158 Gr.;  Muzzle Velocity - 1250 fps.; Muzzle Energy - 548 ft-lbs.; - View the graph

PMP

   PMP - Pretoria Metal Processing is a south african company. For more info you can check their website http://www.icon.co.za/~ammopmp. I have no information if their ammo is available in USA, in europe seems to be no problem to get that for relatively cheaper price.

   

.357 158 Gr. JSP

- Very smooth loading and extracting. Almost no flame nor smoke and less loudness than PMC! I used 158 gr. JSP. Its in the same price category as PMC. No one single failure during shooting. The cleaning was really very easy, because there were almost no deposits! One of the proof of my findings was that there was no black frosted parts near the cannon mouth and the gas cilinder. The tombac residue in the barrel was very easy to remove with Ballistol and the the bronze brush, then 4 patches with the cleaning rod swabed with Ballistol and presto!
