What is .357 Magnum?
Not "one of the most powerful bullets in the world", but still not bad. You won't be feeling too good after being shot with one, that's for damn sure. Even though it's called a

Also used to refer to a gun firing that kind of ammo. Not everyone knows if the guy is carrying a Colt Python or a Smith and Wesson model 19 or whatever the fuck.
1. I saw some guy take a .357 magnum
hollow pointto the head once. His brains were EVERYWHERE, man!
2. Hey, that dude's walking around with a .357 magnum stuffed into the crotch of his pants! This isn't a movie! He's gonna blow his fuckin' nuts off!
A revolver cartridge designed in the 1920s with the .38 as base. At that time it was the only bullet that could penetrate the bulletproof vests of the time. The bullet is 0,357 inch(or just about 9 mm.)wide. It packs a vey nice punch, you feel a bit like Dirty Harry when you fire it (even though he uses the .44 magnum, which is just about twice as powerful). Personally, I prefer firing it in one hand - which i do with all revolvers and semi-automatcs. This means I never hit anything XD
It's the most powerfull handgun cartridge you'r allowed to shoot with in Denmark, where I live. I personally own a Smith & Wesson m.27, which is a relatively common piece in this caliber. General George Patton had the same one. He called it his 'Killing gun'. Obviously he's was a bit more pimped than mine, with mother-of-pearl grips and all that pretty stuff.
It is your place in life to fear my .357 magnum.
One of the most powerful bullets in the world.
Colt Pythons take .357 Magnum ammo.
