Remington


   

.357 158 Gr. SJHP

- An average round for DE. Fired 200 shots, louder then Federal or Fiocchi, bigger muzzle flash as well and recoil is bigger as well. Not very expensive, cheaper than Federal Hydra Shocks but more expensive than American Eagle or some Fiocchi. Though you may find a place where prices are cheaper. Best I have seen was $14 for a box of 50. MRI recommended.

Specs:

 Caliber - .357; Bullet Weight - 158 Gr.;  Muzzle Velocity - 1235 fps.; Muzzle Energy - 535 ft-lbs.; - View the graph

   

.357 158 Gr. JSP

- Very similar to the cartridge described above except this one has a different bullet type, as it seemed to me that's the only difference, slightly less price on it and that's it. I've fired 100 rounds of this type and can't tell big difference for target shooting, of course there is some, for self-defense or hunting since this is JSP not a JHP but for target practice no difference.

Specs:

 Caliber - .357; Bullet Weight - 158 Gr.;  Muzzle Velocity - 1235 fps.; Muzzle Energy - 535 ft-lbs.; - View the graph

- Worked fine and was clean. Cost: $16 per box of 25.
Five shots: Extreme Spread: 28 fps; Standard Deviation: 11; Accuracy: approx. 2" at 25 yards;

Specs:

 Caliber - .44; Bullet Weight - 240 Gr.;  Muzzle Velocity - 1367 fps.; Muzzle Energy - 850 ft-lbs.; - View the graph

Winchester


   

.357 158 Gr. JHP

- This one was the most expensive except Federal Hydra-Shock, $20 + for a box of 50. Has the loudest sound and strongest recoil out of all .357 rounds I have shot.
Fired 150 rounds, pretty good feeding but still little bit worse than Fiocchi or Federal, stronger recoils takes its tall from your hands, especially after firing more than 100 rounds. Contaminates gun less than Remington and definitely much less than 142 Gr. JTC Fiocchi. MRI recommended.

Specs:

 Caliber - .357; Bullet Weight - 158 Gr.;  Muzzle Velocity - 1235 fps.; Muzzle Energy - 535 ft-lbs.; - View the graph


   

.357 158 Gr. JSP

- No live info on this one, haven't seen around here, but looking at the ballistics and experience with other brands should be very similar to Winchester 158 Gr. JHP for target shooting.

Specs:

 Caliber - .357; Bullet Weight - 158 Gr.;  Muzzle Velocity - 1235 fps.; Muzzle Energy - 535 ft-lbs.; - View the graph


   

.44 240 Gr. SJSP

- Worked fine, was clean to shoot. $18 per box of 50. Accuracy - approx. 2" at 25 yards. The Remington 240 Gr. SJSP seemed a little hotter.

Specs:

 Caliber - .44; Bullet Weight - 240 Gr.;  Muzzle Velocity - 1180 fps.; Muzzle Energy - 741 ft-lbs.; - View the graph
